Calories Posted on Menu Boards NYC

It has been a very weeks since the ruling went into effect in New York City that all restaurants with 15 or more outlets (chains) were required to post the calorie content on their menus.

Does anyone from NYC have stories to share on how this has impacted your choices?

One friend told me that her boyfriend walked into Burger King intending to get a quick bite and after seeing the calories on the menu he walked right back out. He opted for a turkey sandwich no mayo from a deli down the street.

Another person who is actually a dietitian told me that even she was shocked at seeing how many calories were in many of the foods, especially the hot dogs and value meals.

Please share your experiences and thoughts with having calories posted on menus!
