I was gemused to read that there is yet more advice from some "experts" over how much people can "safely" eat.
In 1991 the Committee on the Medical Aspects of Food Policy (COMA) set out that the average man should be eating 2,550 calories daily, and the average woman 1,940.
However, after lengthy consultation, these limits have been raised by 55 calories for men and 139 calories for women.
It seems that the old figures were based on "limited available evidence".
Errrmm..doesn't that mean that the old figures were in fact guesses?
In fact, I would go so far as to say that the "experts" who are so fond of telling us how much we can "safely" eat are talking bollocks.
Well, my loyal readers with long memories may well recall that in May this year I wrote the following:
"scientific research (carried out by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition) indicates that these limits (wrt calories) are too low. Men can in fact eat 2900 calories and women 2320."
So, which "experts" do you believe?
I suggest that we all ignore the "experts" and simply follow the old maxim "a little of what you fancy, does you good".
