Our calorific intake between the years 1974 and 2004 decreased by 20 per cent. We are eating about 20 per cent more fruit and vegetables than in the Seventies.
We are doing approximately 25 per cent more exercise than we were in 1997.
But are our waist lines shrinking? No. In fact, a quick glance around most High Streets would suggest the opposite is happening - with even young girls displaying 'muffin tops'.
Makes complete sense to me. It's not about CI/CO.
