Trans Fat in NYC: Update!

While it’s reassuring to know I wouldn’t get any trans fats if I ate in a restaurant in NYC, what will happen if they decide they need to ban all fats and cholesterol (or put a limit), too, and I can’t go into a restaurant and get a nice low carb meal of steak, hamburger or eggs. And then what if they decide to do the same for grocery stores? Fats are such an important part that I worry that the trans fat ban is just the beginning.
