What about the Numbers on Restaurants Menus?

In an attempt to help the consumer, starting in 2018, restaurants with more than 20 locations were required by law to post certain nutritional information. This is a plus for those who are trying to be more aware of caloric intake. When Consumer Reports set out to investigate this, they found that most of these restaurants were actually very close in calorie count to what they had posted. The difference they did find was an increased number in the milligrams of salt to what was actually used. If you do decide to use the calorie count as a guide for weight maintenance try to be aware of this when ordering any entrée. It may help to do some of your own research before you decide to eat in a restaurant. Check out their website and also look at reviews. This may help you decide on a healthy option.
