Local Restaurant Helps Make Counting Calories Easier

""According to 9News.com, “You’ve heard of restaurants posting calorie counts next to their menu items, but there’s a new place in town that takes it a step further. Modmarket will give you a receipt with a breakdown of everything you have just eaten: carbs, calories, fat and protein.”

“‘Most people have no idea [what they’re eating],’ co-owner Anthony Pigliacampo said. Pigliacampo and Rob McColgan opened the first Modmarket in Boulder in September of 2009. Their Glendale store opened in January. It doesn’t look that much different from any quick salad, sandwich and pizza joint. The difference is when you make your selection. You not only see how your choice will affect your diet, but you get a receipt that will show exactly what you’ve eaten.”
