If you’re overweight it’s because you eat too much…

Last nights second episode of  “The Men who made us Fat” explored portion size and supersizing.

Food portion sizes have been growing steadily in the UK for several decades, and supersizing – the selling (and eating) of bumper size meals and bargain price snack multipacks – both contribute to a huge rise in our daily food intake.

Coupled with the constant, between meals, grazing we now indulge in, quite simply – we are putting far more into our bodies than they either need or can cope with.

The Result – encroaching obesity.

Most snack foods also contain excessive amounts of fat, sugar and salt – it’s what makes them so attractive to eat – and you don’t need to be Einstein to understand what effect that is having on our bodies.

There’s a lot of blame placed on American marketing entrepreneurs – but what it boils down to is us taking responsibility for our own actions. Re-addressing what – and how often – we eat.

Makes you think……
