Cheesecake Factory's New SkinnyLicious Menu

Cheesecake Factory Introduces Low-Calorie Menu

Roughly a year after being forced to display calorie counts on menus, the Cheesecake Factory has announced plans to roll out a separate menu that will feature 40 low-calorie dishes. Dubbed "SkinnyLicious," the new menu will have a variety of foods, from entrees to desserts.

Changes will begin on August 8, and all 150 locations will have the low-cal dishes on the menu by the end of September. Diners can choose from 15 590-calorie entrees and 12 appetizers that are under 490 calories. Vegetables replace potatoes on many steak and fish entrees, while dishes that involve cheese, like tacos, will have less cheese. Also, full-fat mayonnaise has been substituted with light mayo in items like chicken salad.

It's nice to see the nation's highest-grossing restaurant promote a healthier lifestyle. Will you enjoy SkinnyLicious? Have you changed the way you order at places like the Cheesecake Factory after seeing the calorie counts on the menu?

I couldn't agree with you more on the portion sizes; I wish all restaurants would make a policy of half-orders. This won't ever happen across the board, however, for economical reasons.

My request is for restaurants to reduce the portion sizes and the prices.along with it. Most of the time we don't need such large portions, especially when we are out shopping, and to take a box home is deadly since most of don't have a cooler in our car to store it! I am a senior and don't eat out a lot and can't eat a large portion any way. Usually I will share a larger meal with whomever I'm with, especially at Cheesecake Factory. I want to save the room for their yummy cheesecake which I am also going to share!

I wish restaurants would pay more attention to reducing sodium. When I dine out, I almost always save half of a meal for leftovers the following day just because even if I am famished, I just can't eat the whole plate of food in front of me. As a result, the calorie count is usually one of the last things that come into play when making the decision of where to eat. The sodium factor? Different issue entirely.
