STUDY: Americans cutting calories, eating better
The message to eat healthier may finally be sinking with Americans.
A new study from the USDA finds Americans ate 100 fewer calories in 2010, compared to years past.
They also ate more meals at home, rather than in restaurants, although that could be due to the recession.
Researchers say obesity did not decrease during this time, but they still see this as a positive step in the right direction.
Overall, survey responses showed Americans were eating more fruits and vegetables.
