Quick blurb/commentary on the potential impact of calorie posting requirements for restaurants.
An interesting excerpt:
“More than a third of American adults are obese, and they often struggle to estimate the number of calories they consume when eating out. In a study published by the American Journal of Public Health, participants underestimated the calories in unhealthy foods at a restaurant by more than 600 calories, around a third of the maximum a woman is supposed to consume in a day.” 2009-7-23 Economist on posting calories
