Kerala has a new incentive to count calories. The Left government headed by Pinarayi Vijayan has introduced a "fat tax" of 14.5 per cent on restaurants that sell junk food like burgers, pizzas and doughnuts. The new tariff will apply to chains like McDonald's and Domino's and it's up to them to decide whether to pass on the cost to customers by raising prices, said government officials.
