Huh. I am seriously interested in the mechanism behind this, if this study is valid and the data is good. I’m not sure if retrospective reporting is a good idea though.
Now we’ll know… – Half of Me
I usually look up a restaurant’s nutritional info before I go. Which means often I don’t go at all. Kind of depressing. And generally, I won’t go to a place if they don’t provide any info on general principle. Having tabletop guides would be welcome! I also understand that the information is an estimate; that the chef might have gone a little wild with the cheese when making my meal. I’m okay with that. But what really annoys me are restaurants that provide info for only a few items. The “healthy” items. Ya know what? I can probably estimate the calories in your “healthy” dry, veggie-laden chicken sandwich. Too bad that I wanted to know if half of your meatball Parmesan sandwich fit into my diet, huh? My “ordering habits” haven’t changed, but my eating habits have.
