Although the Center for Disease Control recently reported obesity rates in the country have leveled off, 34 percent of adults and 17 percent of children are still overweight. As a result, health-conscious diners are on the prowl looking for more sensible meals. California residents are also receiving help from state's government, whether they are actively dieting or not. On Jan. 1, it became illegal for restaurants in California to serve items cooked in hydrogenated oils, a common source of trans fats.
