Most chain restaurants, both fast food and sit down, offer calorie counts on their menus.  According to this article in Huffington Post, these figures are often wrong.  Researchers found that almost 20 percent of the foods they analyzed had at least 100 calories more than what was advertised.  This finding highlights the need for consumers to be savvy about portion size and to be wary of calorie counts to seem too low.  If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
