Calorie counters, beware--if you're dining out regularly, you may be consuming more than you bargained for. A team of scientists purchased items from 42 fast-food and sit-down eateries in Indiana, Arkansas and Massachusetts, including Burger King, Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse and McDonald's, then measured the calories they contained. Their study found that about 20% of meals packed at least 100 more calories than indicated on the menu, while some sit-down restaurant foods were off by as much as 225 calories.
