HealthyDiningFinder.com - Good idea, but how healthy are the restaurants it suggests?

Not too healthy in my opinion. A quick search on the new Healthy Dining Findersite of the Boulder, CO area returned Domino's Pizza, Old Chicago, Burger King, Carl's Jr. and Hooters. Perhaps the water they serve is the "healthy" option.

How do they get away with this? It's puzzling to me how sites like this are able to imply that their suggested restaurants are healthy. There may be a chicken or turkey sandwich on the menu for these restaurants, but most of the menu couldn't be considered healthy. Studies have shown that when consumers feel they are eating healthy...they often eat more than they normally would, increasing their overall caloric intake.

Fortunately, Boulder is a very healthy town and the NBJ team has many healthy food options. I just hope others don't consider this site authoritative....because it is not.

Here's a link to an interview with the creators of HealthyDiningFinder.com
