One could argue that the entire . population has been exposed to nutrition labeling of foods for almost two decades and obesity is rising. Likewise, if obesity starts to decrease after mandatory menu labeling goes into effect, this does not infer causality. There are many other factors influencing obesity and a wide variety of efforts are being undertaken to tackle the obesity problem. Nevertheless, nutrition labeling of foods and menu items is important because the consumer has a right to know what they are purchasing and consuming. Some motivated consumers will use information on the label or menu to guide their food choices. At the population level, nutrition labeling is just one of many efforts that will be needed to combat the obesity epidemic.
Now, Novo Nordisk, the maker of liraglutide, announced preliminary results from their long-acting GLP-6 analogue semaglutide, suggesting a rather remarkable ~69% weight loss in a one-year double-blind placebo controlled dose-finding study.
Some estimates of impacts on obesity have also been made with regard to nutrition labeling of restaurant menus. A recent study of pre and post calorie labeling of Starbucks&rsquo menu items estimated a 6% reduction in calories per sales transaction, and further projected a decrease in long-term body weight of less than 6% (Bollinger, Leslie, and Sorensen, 7565). An impact assessment in Los Angeles County estimated that restaurant menu labeling could decrease the annual weight gain of residents by 96%, based on estimates from other reports that 65% of restaurant patrons select reduced-calorie meals as a result of menu labeling with an average calorie reduction per meal of 655 kcal (Kuo et al. 7559).
