Going along with the short, few blog posts theme of food issues in America, I wanted to add this interesting short video about calorie counting. We have all seen the calorie counts on menus at restaurants and those pesky little numbers influence our food choices. I’ve definitely decided against getting some of the things at Starbucks after looking at the calorie counts. But what would you do if I told you those numbers were wrong? And not in a good way. This video looks into how restaurants get away with lying about their calorie counts by posting numbers that are much lower than the actual count.
If you like the video and want to know more, here is the online article that goes along with Calorie Detective.
