Source Calorie levels on food packaging ‘wildly misleading’ Calorie levels printed on food packaging are wildly misleading and should not be relied upon by dieters, nutritionists claim. Manufacturers’ measurements of energy levels in their food do not include fibre, which accounts for about five per cent of our calorie intake.
Cooking and processing food can alter calorie levels by up to 30 per cent because we burn more energy digesting things which are hard and uncooked, experts explained. Nutritionists recommend that an adult should consume 18g of fibre per day, the equivalent of an additional 250 calories per week.
There are two basic reasons why raw food provide less calories than cooked foods, they are less digestible and also the bits that can be digested cost more to break down. We are talking at least a difference of between 10 to 30 percent. There is a lot of misinformation around calories, and it is crucial for the consumer, whether they are on a diet or not, to have the correct information about what they eat.

Source Sitting down at work ‘increases risks of cancer’ Sit down and get cancer, diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. Prof Rosenkranz, of Kansas State University in Kansas, US, said “We saw a steady increase in risk of chronic diseases with the men who sat more. The group of people who said they sit more than eight hours clearly had the highest risk.”
We know people who are more physically active do better with regard to chronic disease compared with less physically active people. It’s not just that people aren’t getting enough physical activity, but it’s that they’re also sitting too much, and on top of that, the more you sit, the less time you have for physical activity.
The study’s findings are particularly relevant for office workers who spend long amounts of time at their desk, as well as truck drivers. This study was published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity.
