Absolution for #Eating – It’s Not About the #Food
I have news for you:
According to studies, our energy consumption, the amount of food we eat, has actually decreased or stayed the same over the past 20 years. In Finland the results of the large “Finnravinto” study suggested that energy consumption has decreased an average of 20%, which means approximately 600 kilocalories in men and 400 kilocalories in women per day! We consume approximately one BigMac hamburger less energy per day than our parents did. Still, we try to decrease our energy consumption by buying diet cola more than ever before. In actuality, studies suggest that the food that we consume is no less healthy than it has been in the last few decades.
