BROOKLYN - The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene says that the recent requirement for fast-food restaurants to post calorie counts on their menus is working.

A recent study in the British Medical Journal said six out of 10 people looked at the calorie counts before ordering.

The study also said that people are eating 106 fewer calories when the calorie counts are presented on the menu.

Residents are split on the issue, with some saying they do pay attention to the calories, but others saying they merely select what they are hungry for.
