instead of displaying calories on menus -- experts say people may make healthier choices if menus list how much exercise is necessary to burn off calories.

in a new study from texas christian university -- researchers gave study participants different menus... some with calories listed, and some that showed how much brisk walking one would have to do to burn those calories.

the 300 participants -- all under age 30 -- ordered and ate less when they were shown the exercise it'd take to recover from such a meal.

by law, chain restaurants must display calorie content on menu boards.
