Do menu calorie counts affect your choices?

Marketwatch reports the calorie counts on menus are helping... but to little extent.

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, a 3-year study reveals menu calorie counts only helped consumers lose an average of 1 pound for those 36 months.

The average diner's calorie intake was reduced by just 3%, or 44.9 calories. 

What's even more interesting is zero change occurred in drinking or dessert eating habits.

Well, 3% improvement is better than zero.
