An Obamacare calorie count rule went into effect on Monday.

The new federal regulation requires chain restaurants to post calorie counts on all menus and menu boards.

Many restaurants have already been moving forward with complying with these new rules since the issue was raised 11 years ago.

The regulation is intended to offer more transparency to consumers to encourage healthier eating choices.

"We believe this law is going to help consumers make informed choices and choices that are right for them," explained Cicely Simpson, the Executive Vice President of the National Restaurant Association.

The National Restaurant Association said this will offer more uniformity as now you can expect the same information in different cities and states.
