BOSTON (CBS) — More and more food establishments are adding calorie counts to their menus and it may be paying off.

A review published by the Cochrane Library finds that when calorie counts are posted, consumers typically eat 8% fewer calories.

The researchers say that the studies they used in this analysis weren’t of the best quality so more research is needed before more definitive recommendations can be made.
