UNDATED (CNN) -- Many fast-food restaurants list the calorie count of their menu items, but a new study suggests listing the amount of time it takes to burn off those calories is a better idea.
Researchers found that if consumers are aware of the number of minutes they would need to have to exercise to work off the calories that they are eating, they are more likely to order lower-calorie options.
Research participants, who ordered off the activity-labeled menu, ordered 139 fewer calories than those who chose from just a calorie labeled menu.
