Physical Fatness Funbusters in California- that Big Mac has how many calories???

new-obese-200x150Mississippi's still king of cellulite, but an ominous tide is rolling toward doctors in neighboring Alabama: obese baby boomers. It's time for the nation's annual obesity rankings and, outside of fairly lean Colorado, there's little good news. Obesity rates among adults rose in 23 states over the past year and didn't decline anywhere. The news comes as dining at some restaurants becomes a new experience here in California which becomes the first state to require that chain restaurants supply calorie counts for virtually everything they serve. No more guessing - or denial -  about that double Western Bacon Cheeseburger from Carl's Jr.: 960 calories. Side of Chili Cheese Fries to go with that? 990 calories. Maybe stick to the fried zucchini at 330 calories?  Man.... The new law requires restaurants that have at least  20 stores in California  - about 17,000 locations statewide - to provide a brochure on site listing calories, sodium, saturated fat and carbohydrates for each menu item. Both sit-down and drive-through restaurants must comply. Two bright lights in an otherwise dismal situation: alcoholic drinks aren't included. Also, at restaurants that serve only buffets, such as Hometown Buffet,  thankfully, we and our Buffet Pants will still be on our own!
