Embarrassed By Calories: Joint Effect of Calorie Posting and Social Context

This research investigates the joint effect of calorie posting and social context on consumers’ food choices and embarrassment. We hypothesize and demonstrate that posting calorie information on a menu becomes more effective in reducing the total calorie of meal orders when the food is ordered in public (vs. in private).
