Study: Calorie count menus don't matter

Putting calorie information right on the menu was supposed to help you make healthier choices while eating out. But a new study from the American Journal of Preventative Medicine shows that the additional information to help your waistline isn't making a difference.

According to the study, customers at TacoTime, a western Washington chain, who read and access to how many calories were in their chimichangas, burritos and tacos on the restaurant's menu were just as likely to order them as people who didn't have the calorie information.

CNN's Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen breaks down the report on American Morning.
