Low calorie menus are fueling restaurant sales: Healthy selection vs. obesity

See also

According to researchers low calorie menus are fueling restaurant sales. Most restaurants are not calorie intake or diet friendly. Usually restaurants are known for something like pizzas, hoagies, specialty sandwiches and some over-the-top 500 calorie desserts.

Upon all the restaurant chains with signature items, it is hard to think about healthy food when the first thing that comes to mind is something you will eat and regret.

Restaurant chains are becoming more aware of healthy eating options and consumer concerns. "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued two proposed regulations that would ensure calorie labeling on menus and menu boards in chain restaurants, retail food establishments, and vending machines with 20 or more locations. FDA invites members of the public to submit their comments on the proposed regulations by visiting www.regulations.gov.

Food Labeling; Nutrition Labeling of Standard Menu Items in Restaurants and Similar Retail Food Establishments Food Labeling; Calorie Labeling of Articles of Food in Vending Machines
The proposals would ensure that consumers have more information when they make food choices outside of their homes."

If low calorie menus are fueling restaurant sales maybe researchers will find a correlation with restaurant calories and lower obesity levels among consumers.
