Have you noticed that some eating establishments post the calorie count on their menu or on the food display? Some states in America have laws requiring companies of multiple locations to post the calorie count of every item they sell.
When we eat out, it really is difficult to know just how many calories are in prepared food and drink items. We may not know all of the ingredients, or how much fat and sugar are in items. Having the calorie count on menus takes the guess-work out, although there is a margin of error, and some items may have more or less calories than are actually printed.
When this law first came out it was reported that there was a decrease in the sales of very high calorie items. Have you adjusted what you order when eating out by reading the calorie count?
