Yeah, the current threshold is probably too high, but it would be unrealistic to expect standalone restaurants (or like <5 locations places) to have nutritional info. Particularly as they are more likely to have menus that change often. Small business, overly burdensome regulation, etc. I can outsource this argument to National Review. :)

Hmm, odd, here's an issue where I seem to be on your left.

How hard is it for cooks to figure out the nutritional information for what they cook?

They must not have law about that in the restaurant. The people must be the one who will discipline themselves. Even without a law they will know what's good and what's bad.

Trojan Horse Virus Removal: I think you vastly overestimate the easiness of estimating calorie count. There are salads that have 1000 calories and unhealthy sounding sandwiches with 300. This is the essence of personal responsibility; giving people the information they need to make an informed choice.

Tung: I don't know how many calories the meals I make at home have! :)
