Restaurants Help Patrons Count Calories

The price isn't the only number on the menu at Seasons 52. The Florida based restaurant chain tells customers the calorie count up front.

Applebee's restaurants also tout calories on the Weight Watchers portion of the menu. This fall, menu labeling becomes mandatory in New York City.

Many experts wonder if some restaurants may resist the trend because of the time and effort involved. There are also concerns that the calorie count may turn off the customer. No word yet if menu labeling will be required in Georgia.
