Summary:

Embedding diet-related words in a restaurant menu—the description of the salads included “low in calories,” “calorie-conscious,” “Are you also watching your weight?”)—versus not (“special offer”) increased the selection of low-calorie foods (salad or fish) for chronic and current dieters (nearly 50% of menu choices, versus about 15%). There was no effect for nondieters.
