I do think it's important. Starbucks will introduce it here soon.

It's shocking how much calories are in some of their coffees / Frappucino's (?)

Same with the shakes in Eddies Over 1000 calories!

Over 1000 calories!
And I do like those malts and shakes. Feck it, I'm still drinking them

As a dwarf my intake is supposed to be 1500 per day. I eat between 2000 and 3500 and always have. I think most of the recommendations are bollox. Gear your diet more towards less salt and less saturated fat, ditch the fast food and the frozen foods and you can eat whatever you want.

True, I wouldn't say all frozen food is bad though. Frozen peas make a great soup.

yeah if u stay away from sat fat you wont put on as much weight and less sat fat is good for your heart and less salt is always good but dont you need a certain amount of calories in your "balanced diet"

Learn to eat until you are full, not stuffed, your body will regulate itself. Understand that you really don't need to feel sick to know you are full, your next meal is never more than 3-4 hours away.

That is the key, a lot of people are terrified of leaving a plate that isn't empty.

Actually, latest consensus is that saturated fats aren't as evil as previously thought.

Nutrition seems to b a fairly complex matter, and our bodies were finely tuned to fun on the foods available to our early ancestors. Its the artificial processed crap that does damage, as well as things like wheat etc (which cause massive insulin related problems) thst does the damage in my book. Stick to the stuff we were meant to eat - fruit, veg, fish, meats - and avoid processed foods that are bodies weren't intended for.

Well Saturated fats are both good and bad for you, you have bad Saturated fats and one's that are good for you as well so its to get a happy balance there. I do agree with you on eating loads of fruit and veg as well that is part of a normal balanced diet.

But what is a "Balanced diet"

[...]I think it would be a good Idea as most restaurants you go to anywhere in Ireland you don't know exactly how much calorie's you are eating in any given meal, if it was on the menu it might make peoples decision a lot easier as to what to eat and what not to eat.
Especially if you are on a calorie controlled diet.

But how easy to implement.
Should the sauces that can be served on the side have their own count?
Should that also include a breakdown of fat/protein/sugars as on packaging, given that some calories are better than others.
What about drinks?

I think is unnecessary. Do we need labels to know that the salad has less calories than the steak with chips?

I think most people should have already a pretty good idea of the calories in food.

At least for me, dining out is a rare and special occsion. I don't wanna be counting calories then

Though the dressing of the salad could make it less healthy than a good steak without sauce, with side veg'.

I agree that going out may not be when you want to count calories if it is a rare occasion.
But you are not the core target of this initiative!

Fathers who have never dieted and know little about nutrition, and do not cook and bring their kids to eat out. They are.
Businessmen people who eat out too often. They are.
Priests whose maid is sexy but useless. They are.
Mothers who are too busy to know better. They are.
Anyone who think they'd like to know. They would be.

I was in Dublin yesterday and I actually saw a menu with calorie count.
Though they forgot the capital "C" (commercial convention for "kcal") and used a smalll "c", thus giving misleading information...
