is pointless expensive misleading and will cause people to put on weight :lol: :scratch:
you can make any product to less than 100cals per serving
lard oil sugar can all be less than 100cal per serving it means nothing but suggest control or even healthy :cb
we need to stop beleving this carp as it costs a fortune and is unhealthy
they sell smaller sizes at an often inflated price up to twice as much just to be less
the simple fact is if its nice its unhealthy in excess :lol:

I don't agree.

To make a product 100 cals / serving you either make the serving as small as a postage stamp or you use less "bad stuff" in which case it is not the same product as it was before.

If you are in calorie deficit each day you’ll lose weight so I think it will probably help a lot of people who are on a calorie controlled diet or are counting calories lose weight so I think it can be a good thing if it means people are losing excess weight.

they tend to take regular recipes and reduce the size to be less than 100cal but either charge the the same or more for the 100cal size :scratch:

only iff you feel full or satisfied if not you will snack often on the unhealthy junk we all love with the "less than 100" giving you permission to :lol:
you need a proper balanced diet with the un-healty element reduced and the healthy elements to fill you up :huray:

I used to buy those kelloggs bars, only 95 calories a bar.

It seemed a good idea for my lunchbox, until I realised I was eating 2 each time -1 was just not filling at all.

My tip: porridge for breakfast, and fruit in the lunchbox, I take a banana, an apple, a conference pear and a handful of grapes each day to work.

An apple is well under 100 calories, is quite filling and has slow release fruit sugar and fibre. Not as nice as a Marathon bar of course........

It's not as bad as the 'low fat' nonsense they try to fob off on people. It's 'low fat' but high sugar (usually).

Then there's the 'low calorie, low sugar, reduced salt, no artificial colours or preservatives' thing.... in other words, tasteless,

I don't often buy stuff that comes in *serving sizes* I tend to buy whatever I need by weight.

I'm not interested in low fat or low salt, I'll opt for low sugar if it's available, cos on the rare occasions I buy something already prepared for me (pasta sauce, f'rinstance) I find it too sweet.

The important thing is to know what calories are in your food.

Eat less calories and you will lose weight, if that's your intention.

size volume and filling your belly is the information you need

Sugar is sugar and no matter what form it comes in it has the same effect on the body, fruit is full of sugar so if on a diet too much is not so good, veg is better. There is the same amount of sugar in 2 apples as a can of coke :shock:

refined sugar is far worse than carbs from fruit and veg
fruit and veg contain fiber minerals vitamins and releases the sugars slowly the body also has to "work" converting the sugars using up energy in the process
