Weight loss and healthy nutrition are difficult when eating out – some would say it’s impossible to diet and eat restaurant food – especially since we go into that hypnosis trance of eating all the food on our plate. According to an article by Rebekah Denn of the Seattle PI on November 13, 2008, a Starbucks Venti Mocha Frapuccino with whipped cream is 500 calories, 17 grams of fat, and 330 milligrams of sodium. A Romano’s Macaroni Grill spaghetti& meatballs with meat sauce is 2430 calories, 128 grams of fat and 5,290 milligrams of sodium, Ivar’s fish sandwich is 987 calories, 38 grams of fat and 3,174 milligrams of sodium, and a Johnny Rockets chili size burger is 1,254 calories, 84 grams of fat and 1,915 milligrams of sodium.

Starting Jan. 1, 2009, customers at most chain restaurants in King County, Washington, will get a full plate of information along with their food. The goal is to change consumer behavior by providing the nutritional information of menu items.

Studies suggest most customers actually don’t realize how good or bad for them the food might be.

Out of 500 Washington voters in a survey commissioned by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest and the American Heart Association before the regulation was passed, fewer than 10 percent could identify the lowest- or highest-calorie menu items at popular chain restaurants.

So far, there are only anecdotal and small-scale studies to suggest whether the laws will change consumers’ behavior. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is supporting more long-term research. A University of California study last year estimated that having nutritional information available in fast-food restaurants would, in theory, stop adults from gaining about 2.7 pounds per year. I’m skeptical. I really doubt that most people will even look or care – they want what they want and they order it.
