 McDonald's to include calorie counts on menu boards, but will that deter diners?

I rarely eat out but I'm very happy to see that they are doing this.  All restaurants need to follow suit.

no.. because mc donald is a treat for us... when we go.. heck my kids dont even ask for it.. we might go once every 3 months and then they pretty much can have whatever they want..

Usually we hit mcdonald on the way to the beach or when they might spend the night at grandmas which is rare..

Working in fast food.... I can say that for 90% of the population... It will not change... As a matter of fact... It's BRILLANT!!! People will flock to the restaurant that has it posted instead of by the registers on a handout.... Sales... Will increase!!!

Maybe it will encourage people to eat at home. I doubt it, but maybe.

 They were one of the worst offenders at over 500 calories.
