Calorie information may be wrong16th November 2009
The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition has suggested in a draft report that calorie levels used in healthy eating plans could be wrong.
The committee said that the recommended number of calories per day, which has remained constant for 18 years, could be boosted by 16%. The committee's report "provides a much more accurate assessment of how energy can be burnt off through physical activity" and would mean that an adult could consume an extra 400 calories per day.
