Restaurant chains now put calorie counts on their menus — and it's part of a 100-year-old American obsession that started with a California doctor

Starting this week, chain restaurants are required to post calorie counts on their menus as part of the 2010 Affordable Care Act. The measure is designed to help people eat healthier, but it's important to remember where calories come from in the first place — and to know that they're not the end-all, be-all when it comes to nutrition. In 1918, a Los Angeles physician played a major role in popularizing the calorie as a way of losing weight. It was the first mention of the word in popular cult...

Restaurants are listing calories on menus starting today — but a registered dietitian says there's a better way to size up your food

Chain restaurants are required to post calorie counts on their menus as of Monday. The rules — put in place as part of the 2010 Affordable Care Act — require chains with more than 20 stores to list calories, fat, and sodium levels on all menus. While calories are an important tool for healthy eating, they aren't a panacea, according to a registered dietitian. It's also important look at levels of sugar and protein. In glaring black-and-white block letters on the side of your favorite cereal,...

Religion, Politics and Alabama

Eighty-one percent of Alabama’s white evangelicals who voted in Alabama’s senate election yesterday voted for Roy Moore, weighing his professed conservative Christian values against a record of racist, anti-LGBTQ and anti-women’s rights rhetoric, and more recent accusations of sexual assault against minors.
