Good Luck.
New research that restaurant menus showing how much exercise is to burn off calories could be good for losing . Researchers from the Texas Christian University say that telling how many minutes they must walk to burn off the calories from a hamburger is much information than showing how many calories the hamburger has. They say people do not understand calories but do understand they have to walk for 30 minutes. Senior Dr. Meena Shah said the menu could people make healthier choices. She said: "We need a more strategy to encourage people to order and consume calories from restaurant menus."

The researchers looked at the restaurant made by 300 different people. Some used a menu calorie information; some had a menu with calorie information; and the were given a menu with a guide to how many minutes of walking would burn off the calories in the food. Example information on the last menu a woman would need to walk for two hours to off the calories in a double cheeseburger. The people who had the menus with the exercise information food with the fewest calories. Researcher Ashlei James said: "Brisk walking is something nearly everyone can to, which is why we displayed…the minutes of walking needed to burn food ."
