Cheesecake is not the only option for dessert when visiting the Cheesecake Factory. You’ll find popular desserts like Strawberry Shortcake (1340 calories), Warm Apple Crisp (1740 calories), and Chocolate Tower Truffle Cake (1810 calories). Ice cream treats range in calories from 600 (for a bowl of vanilla ice cream) to 1230 calories for a Godiva Chocolate Brownie Sundae that can serve several diners. Healthiest Options on the Cheesecake Factory Menu

For example, the Skinnylicious French Country Salad provides 580 calories. The Skinnylicious Caesar contains about 530 calories. Both are entree-sized salads. If you prefer a healthy dish that is even lower in calories, you’ll have to select a smaller salad like the Little House Salad (320 calories) or the Endive Salad (420 calories). You might also enjoy the appetizer-sized Mexican Chicken Lettuce Wrap Tacos (260 calories).

So what do you choose for dessert if you want to maintain a healthier diet? The smartest choice is simply a bowl of fresh strawberries (250 calories) or a bowl of ice cream. The healthiest cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory is the original style or Tiramisu Cheesecake (900 calories).

If you are a low-carb eater, there are a few selections that may fit your diet. The Ahi Carpaccio appetizer will add only 13 grams of carbohydrate to your daily total. And a lunch-sized Green Salad will add only 8 grams. If you’re hungry for dessert, both the plain low-carb cheesecake and the strawberry low-carb cheesecake each have about 40-42 grams of carbohydrate, but only 11 net carbs.

Almost every standard entree on the Cheesecake Factory menu provides over 1000 calories. Many provide over 2000 calories. If you eat a typical 2000-calorie per day diet, that means you’ll consume a day’s worth of energy in a single meal— without counting the cheesecake!

So what are the worst choices on the Cheesecake Factory menu? Most of the pasta dishes are very high in fat and calories. One order of Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken contains 2660 calories and 1595 milligrams of sodium. Pasta Carbonara with Chicken provides 2640 calories and 2569 milligrams of sodium. As a basis of reference, the American Heart Association recommends that the average American consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day.

And what about the cheesecake selections? The highest calorie Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes include the Ultimate Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake (1570 calories), the Toasted Marshmallow S’mores Galore (1540 calories), the Oreo Dream Extreme Cheesecake (1520 calories), and the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake (1510 calories). A Word From Verywell

If you love an indulgent experience, like a special meal at the Cheesecake Factory, there’s no reason not to enjoy it once in a while. But if you are trying to slim down or if you are watching your fat intake, you might have a hard time sticking to your diet at this restaurant.

Your best bet might be to order a small, veggie-based appetizer or two as your entree, then ask for an extra fork when your dining companion orders dessert. Enjoy a bite or two of the creamy treat and be done. You’ll still be able to experience the flavor of the dessert without putting your commitment to a healthy eating plan at risk.
