However, more recent studies have shown calorie labels on restaurant menus may impact food choices, especially when recommended daily caloric requirement labels are added (Roberto et al.

Several research studies conclude that calorie counts for foods on the menus of fast-casual and full-serve restaurants appear to have had little effect on consumer food choices [146–148].

However, despite the obstacles of menu labeling, this regulation seems to have a lot of support from American consumers.

Disappearance data suggest an increase in per capita food availability of fat over time (Enns et al., 1997), whereas evidence based on actual dietary intake from a compilation of 171 studies suggests per capita dietary fat intake has decreased in the United States since 1950 (Stephen and Wald, 1990).

Not surprisingly, researchers have found that the rise in caloric intake has contributed to the rise in obesity rates.81 Thus, when it comes to our diet, one can say that the average calorie intake of Americans is not healthy, and we pay a price for that.

  • People knew before these calorie counts that it wasn’t good for you. People obviously do not care. They will eat what they want regardless.

  • Also maybe if healthy food wasn’t so expensive we would eat more healthy foods. Companies don’t care about peoples health they just want to make money

  • When I was trying to lose weight, I was very thankful for the calories listed. But I feel if you aren’t dieting, people don’t care.

  • It helps a little bit. It’s easy to simply pick something healthy one day and then something a bit less health with a cake or ice cream or desert and then try and eat really healthy again. I look at calories sometimes but mostly I forget but I think it’s helpful they are posted

  • I try to stick to 3 meals a day. Mix in Salads every other day. Avoid Soda and Candy. And excersice, mostly Cardio. But generally I eat what I feel like eating forget all this Herbivore diet or Calorie count BS.

  • Now let’s not forget the GMOs cause leaky gut all the crap that’s in ice cream everything and ice cream anything with dairy products and yet people are still fat

  • The calorie count does help me out a lot. But I still eat Mc Donald’s at least once a week. Instead of getting a big Mac I’ll get a salad. Yet some days I just don’t give a damn and get a big Mac. No matter how high in calories a food has people will still eat it regardless. Calories are just a number to them…

  • When they know they feel less scared so they’ll be at a higher chance of not caring. Like facing your fear. When you win you won’t care anymore.

  • Caliories on menus are not enough. There should be list of all ingredients, epecially toxic. (some food ingredients are treated toxic in EU and freely added to US food)

  • We eat it because it’s good. I’ve learned how hard it is being obese too yet I still eat it. Only way to prevent is either make the company make it have less Calories. We’re still eating it no matter what.

  • hey to any one thinking about getting there truck or car worked on bye a good mechanic. DONT GO D AND P AUTO ON MARTIN RD AND GRATIOT IN ROSEVILLE DAVE THE OWNER AND HEAD MECHANIC IS A REPOFF HE LL MESS UP YOUR CAR OR TRUCK HE IS A SHITTY MECHANIC AND A THEIFT SO AT ALL COST AVOID D AND P IN ROSEVILLE PLEASE HELP ME TO PASS THIS ON TY

  • 33 months ago I was just a little over 700 pounds. I had a 10 to 12 XL shirt on my back. a 122 days ago I had a 56 inch waist. An a 122 days I’ve been total vegan. now I wear a 44 inch waist. and I still get up Monday through Friday at 540am to go for my exercise walk, which is a three hour exercise walk. none of this would have been possible. if I had not given my life to Christ

  • How about we reform food stamps. My tax dollars shouldn’t go to someone spending the funds on doritos and sodas then ending up in the hospital where my tax dollars also end up

  • This report is just so stupid….
    NO ONE EATS IT EVERY DAY….
    Who really cares how many Calories there are…
    How many calories are there in a home made hamburger with bun and toppings….oh golly…ABOUT THE SAME….
    How many calories are in mashed potatoes that mom makes….oh golly…oh my…panic…fear…

  • I look at the calorie counts and base my decision on that information whenever available. A list of ingredients would be an additional plus.
