I am not sure if this is a good or bad law. But, if passed why only fast food? Actually I believe everyone already knows that fast food is high in caloric content. What about the other, not considered fast food, establishments? I would bet many of the foods available at these restaurants are extremely high in calories. If it were to pass I would like to see it include all restaurants.

I think everyone should read the books "Eat This, Not That" books and make the decision on what they want to eat. Men's health magazine also had a very interesting article on the best and worst foods in America that surly opened my eyes. They even report on your favorite restaurants and grocery store items. You will be shocked at what you find!!

It takes personal investigation and education to know and understand what it takes to make one's body properly function. Not all bodies are the same. If you're athletic or work hard for a living, you need more calories and proteins than a person who sits in an office all day. The last thing the fast food industry wants is for people to educate themselves about they're nutritional needs. That would put them out of business.

If you think calories are bad...take a look at the sodium in these fast foods. That's the real killer!!
