USA Today reports that only a small percentage of the US population knows how many calories they should, or do consume.

Only 9% of people in the USA can accurately estimate the number of calories they should eat in a day, and 9% keep track of their calories every day.

People have plenty of excuses for not tracking: They say it's extremely difficult, and they lack the interest, knowledge and focus. Some say they're not convinced that it matters all that much.

These are among the findings of a nationally representative online survey of 1,000 people, conducted for the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation.
