Counting calories again

It's always nice to have your prejudices confirmed. I didn't think the new laws requiring chain restaurants to give calorie counts on their menus would have the desired effect and now a study agrees. If anything people are now eating meals with more calories. This is not a surprise to me as that would be my response (I haven't actually encountered any of new menus). People buy fast food because it is cheap and filling.

  1. Yes, likewise here: the article is yet another confirmation to me that average folk will do nothing to improve their health (or in fact to prevent really bad health), yet they will be loudly demanding free health care (as it does not require too much butt movement).
