From Toronto - Most meals at sit-down restaurants are alarmingly high in calories, fat and sodium, according to a research letter published in JAMA Internal Medicine.   Researchers studied nearly 20 chain sit-down restaurants, examining calories, fat, saturated fat, and sodium levels in 685 meals and 156 desserts. Results showed that calorie content from breakfast, lunch and dinner meals averaged 1,128, accounted for 151% of daily recommended sodium, 89% of daily recommended fat, 83% of daily recommended saturated and trans fat, as well as 60% of daily recommended cholesterol.
