    I’m a little confused here?
    So if you took a 2000kcal diet and applied the eat well %
    I calculate 8% for high sugar and high fat foods to = 160kcals
    So if someone were to drizzle a little olive
    Oil (good fat but fat none the less which is 9kcal per gram) then a tablespoon 15g x 9kcal = 135kcals of the ‘allowance’

    I think the BDA know what they’re doing

  2. It’s called the Dieter’s Paradox. The reader picks up the subconscious message that eating a little asparagus, or such, will somehow compensate for all the days bad, BDA approved, food choices.
    Consequently calories from salad and such – healthy “superfoods” – are often just EXTRA calories added to a worse-than-before diet.

    Fresh asparagus and store asparagus are two different animals. To keep asparagus, stand it up with the cut end in sugar water. OK. That is the difference.

    And I liked the other article they linked with this – about how asparegus helps diabetes? Apparently, it causes the body to release more insulin. Thanks a lot. The very LAST thing an insulin resistant diabetic needs is MORE insulin. Hello weight gain!

    Ah yes the OMG diet – saw the book the other day, had a quick flick through and was comforted to find it was ‘anti carb’ though I certainly don’t want to be skinnier than my friends, thanks!!!

    I can’t take anything published in the Daily Fail seriously, tbh…they are obsessed with making womwn feel inferior and ugly, but now you’ve alerted me, I may have to go and read the article, I need a good laugh…
