Ordering food for delivery online is often more convenient ... and calorie-dense?
A recent study from the University of Rochester's Simon Graduate School of Business looked at how people placed orders from a North Carolina pizza chain -- those who ordered online ended up with dishes that had 6 percent more calories, the Wall Street Journal reported.
