Warning about counting calories11th July 2011
Nutritionists have warned that people who want to lose weight and count calories could be eliminating nutritious foods from their diet.
A study showed a fifth of people in the UK begin a new diet every month and over a third buy low calorie foods. Dr Emma Derbyshire, a nutritionist from Manchester Metropolitan University, said: "Though it is important to acknowledge calorie intake, this must not come at the expense of eating a balanced and varied diet...often, processed, low-calorie food can contain high levels of sugar and additives, and so may not be as healthy as people think."
