Seems like a waste of time and money. For one I do not believe that knowing the calorie content tells us much of anything useful for how fattening or unhealthy a food is. Second, if you know enough about calories that it would have any real benefit, you should be able to examine the food and guess for yourself.

Far more beneficial would be knowing the amount of salt, granulated sugar, MSG, and types of fats added. All I can say for this calorie counting nonsense is that it might be a start for reporting of those things. --Cirroc

Good idea. But will it make any Differnce to fatties?

Most seem to dine at Mcd's or similar, and just seem to want to stuff their faces. Healthier options have been available for a while,but you ahrdly ever see an obese person eating them.

There are no healthier options in my home town but to cook by yourself. But even when folks in my hometown do that, they do not have a clue what is healthy or how to cook such a meal.

Well that is my hometown, U.S.A. But my last trip to Las Vegas, I did not see any vegetarian restaurant chains there either. So I am curious, what are those healthier options? --Cirroc

Why do you believe that something has to be vegetarian to be healthy? Choose foods that aren't fried, aren't doused in butter and oil, and you're off to a good start.

He's also a fitness guru. Living in China when it was still a poor country gave me an appreciation for the health related ills of our diet which is heavily based on dairy products and animal proteins. Steamed rice or boiled noodles served with plenty of seasonal vegetables and small amounts of meat or fish which provide the favoring are much better for you.

This change in the law will have no impact on me since I don't eat in chains, instead satisfying my gastronomic libido with exotic cuisine found in hole-in-the wall ethnic restaurants. I don't think I've gone to LA without researching at least one place to try and I really enjoy it rather than making it one thing I did that day.

Sorry, Sarge, can't help you with that. Now, if you want to know how long the bones were boiled to give a beef soup its specific depth of flavor, that I can reliably tell you after a taste.

I think it's safe to say, however, it's an addiction that might reduce your life span.
