The Nutricate Receipt - Great idea!

The Nutricate Corporation based out of Santa Barbara, California has come up with a brilliant new receipt for restaurants - the Nutricate Receipt which provides nutritional information regarding the meal you've just paid for.

I love this idea, but it would be better if at the bottom of the receipt it would give a breakdown of how long you'd have to exercise to burn off those calories. For instance in their demo receipt some poor soul had 931 calories for lunch. In order to burn that off he/she'd have to walk at 3.5mph for 3.5 HOURs or cycle at 10mph for 2.2 HOURs.

So was that turkey sandwich and fries really worth it?
