Calorie counting alone might not convince diners to eat healthier
December 24, 2012 (WLS) -- Calorie counting alone might not help you choose a healthier meal when you're at a restaurant, but knowing how much you'll have to exercise to work that meal off might.
A new study from the University of North Carolina shows that menus which show how many miles you'll have to walk to burn off a meal are more likely to convince you to eat healthy compared to menus without any nutritional information.
Diners in the study ate about 20 percent fewer calories.
