  • Eating healthily in the UK and even london is fairly easy if you stick to a balanced diet rather than american health fads.

    Drink fresh fruit juice instead of fizzy drinks, avoid places like macdonalds and instead go to places like Beetroot in soho or any Felafel restaurant. Even the average pub grub in london is fairly well balanced, just so long as you have carbs in the day and protein in the evening. The hotel you stayed in would have provided continental breakfast so thats the day sorted.

    Also avoid s

    • Not excusing my tubby compadres in America, but I wouldn't be too smug:

      (Source [eufic.org]) The most comprehensive data on the prevalence of obesity worldwide are those of the World Health Organisation MONICA project (MONItoring of trends and determinants in CArdiovascular diseases study) [14]. Together with information from national surveys, the data show that the prevalence of obesity in most European countries has increased by about 10-40% in the past 10 years, ranging from 10-20% in men and 10-25% in women [15].

      • Too true.

        And in whose footsteps did we follow this trend..? The home of fast food, the United States.

        Fortunately the government acknowledges the problem and is doing something (although, as always, just a token effort rather than really making a difference).

        It isn't hard to eat healthily though, most of the obesity isn't because there isn't access of healthy food (very very few people, and certainly a tiny minority of the overweight are more than a mile from the nearest affordable source of fresh vege

        • No excuses, only laziness.

          Unhappily so.

          Supermarkets aren't quite so prevalent here (at least in Pittsburgh) because they tend to be larger and most people drive instead of walk for their groceries. (Boo!) But it's actually much easier to eat healthier almost everywhere you go now -- even many fast food places have one or two items that, while you might not want it for every meal, will do in a pinch. (Salads and such.) I don't think it's a coincidence that it's also much easier to get at least decent beer almost everywhere you go as well.

          • Heh. McDonalds "Salads Plus" is what we have over here. I do wonder how many calories are in the dressing though.

            It's similiar to being in a restaurent when somebody chooses the "healthier" fish option without realising that the sauce contains more fat content than the rest of the menu combined.
