I like the idea of calories on a menu--makes you think about what you will be eating, but you still have the choice to go ahead and eat it. Even meals that look healthier (large, covered in everything salads) may not be low in calories. I don't think banning Big Gulps stops people from drinking sugary drinks; they can just buy two or three smaller sodas if they are really that thirsty.
