British people cheat on how much food they eat according to NHS survey

Hello Community,

I am sharing a BBC news about diet again bbc.co.uk/news/health-36988...

Appearently, the British poplulation cheats on the amount of calorie they consume per day. According to some survey, people think their daily calorie intake is around 2000kcal; however, if they ate around 2000kcal, they would have been losing weight insead of developing different forms of diebetes.

In this article they also show the amount of calories in junk food and how long we should walk or run in order to burn those calories they provide.

Hope it might interest

That's why I think weighing everything is important, judging portion size just by looking at it is dangerous! Pleased I don't drink wine 1 large glass = a doughnut!

I agree, weighting food is the only was to be 100% aware of the calorie intake. Also cooking at home is important. We don't know which ingredients they use in restautant and how much they use to flavour food!


Hi Teresina,

I will look forward to reading this article later in the week, when I have a bit more time - thank you so much for sharing it.
