Last Post for September: Calories on Menus

Gosh - I just realised how many posts I've made for this month! It's official the month with most posts, averaging at a little over 1 post a day.

Check out this interesting discussion, "Calories on Menus: Is It Good For New York?" at Diet Blog.

I personally think that this is one of the best thing that the government could do to help in reducing obesity rate.

As many of the comments in that post said, it is great to have the option to easily know how much calories are in our food. It helps us in choosing wiser more often. Plus, for others who couldn't care less about the calorie content, the information could easily be ignored (let's get real here - it can't be difficult to ignore small prints of numbers and letters if people can ignore that ugly image of diseases that are put on cigarette packets!).

Oh.. How I wish they would do this in Melbourne!
