Healthy eating

February 19th, 2013

Just checking some labels this morning.

  • Waitrose 'LOVElife' high-fibre farmhouse multiseed loaf. Calories per slice, before butter or any other toppings: 130.
  • Waitrose Generously Coated Dark Chocolate Ginger Biscuits. Calories per (substantial) biscuit: 122.

I rest my case.

    The fibre might need re-evaluating too: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/fat-chance-of-slimming-dieters-who-eat-highfibre-foods-consume-more-calories-scientists-say-8500122.html

    Too many carbs bad, sugar bad, salt bad. Sadly :-(

    Marketing: “Low in fat” = Reality: “High in sugar”
    Marketing: “Low in sugar” = Reality: “High in fat”
    This holds true for almost every product I have seen where the claims are boldly made.
    Sugar and fat tastes nice for a reason.

    Too true…

    As Rose said when putting some food down in front of me once: “This is supposed to be good for you, so it’ll probably need some salt and pepper”
