Menu Changes Researched: Eating & Exercising

Posted: Updated:

Displaying the amount of exercise needed to burn calories in restaurant dishes is effective, according to researchers at Texas Christian University.

The researchers are looking for new ways to get people to eat less at restaurants.

For example, the minutes of brisk walking needed to burn of calories were listed next  to menu items.

Many restaurants display calorie information, but most studies show that information does not usually lead to consumers ordering fewer calories.
