UNBELIEVABLE…Public Health England are still in the 70s when it comes to recommendations about food/calories/portion sizes, they must be sponsored by Papa John’s! These people are responsible for our nation’s health!Â Let’s take a look at the idiotic statements heard today on LBC’s Nick Ferrari show:
- PHE says children eat up to 500 too many calories a day â€” equivalent to an extra meal WRONG
- A HEALTHY diet does not offset the harm of too much salt, say experts. It raises blood pressure which is linked to a higher risk of heart attack and stroke WRONG
- PUBLIC Health England wants people to regulate their diet by eating 400 calories for breakfast, 600 for lunch and 600 for dinner â€” thatâ€™s 1,600 a day WRONG
- Snacks and drinks should take the amount up to a daily total of 2,000 calories for women and 2,500 for men WRONG
I’m very surprised they didn’t mention low fat substitues and exercise to complete this debacle! They must have a vested interest in keeping the population eating carbohydrates, otherwise the lid would be blown off by now. Obesity, diabetes and metabolic diseases are NOT caused by excessive calorie intake but by hormones, otherwise nobody would enter puberty as a teen. Did you start eating more and exercising less one day when you were 13 in order to gain body mass? Of course not, and it’s the same in adulthood, hormones (this time insulin) is responsible for weight gain and, don’t forget,Â it’s completely normal for your body to pack on the pounds if you are eating a “summer” diet rich in carbs and sugar, fattening up for winter.
However, you must at some point start the opposite and regulatory process of eating a “winter” diet. It matters not how much you eat and how much you exercise, but what you eat and when. Your current Western diet of carbs, soda, sweets and fruit is perfect for your “fattening up” phase, but you can’t eat that all year round and expect to remain slim and healthy, you must at some point enter the “hibernation” phase where carbs are slim pickings and you need to shoot a rabbit or dear to survive.
