British study shows eating more and exercising less will make you fat
A new study by the British Heart Foundation found that in the year 2000, the average British man was 16.9 pounds heavier than in 1986. The reason? Well believe it or not it was because they have been eating crappy food and not getting enough exercise.
They got some sharp cookies over there.
By studying official figures on body weight from 1986 and 2000 and calculating the food energy available during that time, researchers were able to work out the expected extra food eaten by men and women during that period. Not sure how the researchers figured out how much food was consumed but like I said these people are really sharp. The study was published in the British Journal of Nutrition.
