Good Luck.
New research [reveals / rivals] that restaurant menus showing how much exercise is [needy / needed] to burn off calories could be good for [losing / lost] weight. Researchers from the Texas Christian University say that telling [customers / customs] how many minutes they must walk to burn off the calories from a hamburger is [much / most] better information than showing how many calories the hamburger [does / has] . They say people do not [really / real] understand calories but do understand they have to walk for 30 minutes. Senior researcher Dr. Meena Shah said the menu could help people [make / do] healthier choices. She said: "We need a more [affective / effective] strategy to encourage people to order and [consume / consumer] fewer calories from restaurant menus."

The researchers looked at the restaurant orders [done / made] by 300 different people. Some [used / uses] a menu without calorie information; some [had / has] a menu with calorie information; and the [rested / rest] were given a menu with a [guide / guidance] to how many minutes of fast walking would burn off the calories in the food. Example information [on / at] the last menu [suggestion / suggested] a woman would need to walk for two hours to burn off the calories in a double cheeseburger. The people who had the menus with the exercise information [ordered / ordering] food with the fewest calories. Researcher Ashlei James said: "Brisk walking is something nearly everyone can [relate / relative] to, which is why we [replayed / displayed] …the minutes of brisk walking needed to burn food calories."
