More idiot food science. Salads in some restaurants have quite a high calorie count. NO SHIT! Creamy sauce, croutons, cheese, bacon – a sprinkling of rocket and tomatoes do not make these ingredients magically go away. Of course the sentences uttered but nutritionists make complete sense, and talk about moderation, mixing food etc etc, which they always do (though one must feel sorry for quoted Brigid McKeivith who is four or six away from sharing a surname with NOT PROPER NUTRITIONIST “Dr” Gillian McKeith). However the holistic view is nicely summed up in this line:
“aAter all, eating out is meant to be a treat, the chance to have something you couldn’t have at home.”
And the health benefits of enjoying yourself and having a good social night out are rarely mentioned in articles like this. FOR SHAME Guardian!
