Few heed restaurant calorie postings, but numbers are growing - LA Times

Calorie posting is now the law of the land for chain outlets. (Report from 01-22-15)

I thought nutritional content posting for chain restaurants had been required for the past few years.
I sometimes check nutritional info, my husband doesn't ever check labels.
I don't think it's healthy to be obsessed with food choices.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


In 2009, a year after New York City, Seattle required calorie labeling on the menus of restaurants. Its evaluation found:
Calorie information awareness and use increased significantly from 2008 to 2010…the proportion who saw and used calorie information tripled, from 8.1% to 24.8%…White, higher income, and obese respondents had greater odds of seeing calorie information….Significant increases in calorie information awareness and use following regulation support the population-wide value of this policy.

Paying excess taxes is also the law of the land. It's not right and I don't like it. Bare and Bonny are right. Moderation!

Let me state it my own way: some people need to get a life, get a grip, and get beyond it. A one track mind is an obsessed mind locked in the past.

Physical health - excellent if you believe everything that's been posted.

Emotional health - Don't bet on it.

Every time I think I'm out I get pulled back in.
