The Great British Diet

 
9780712610339: The Great British Diet

The concept of the balanced diet is now regarded as largely a myth. What is certain though is that we tend to eat too much of the wrong tilings. But the goals set by the 1983 NACNE Report on dietary change have been described by some as easy to achieve, by others as draconian and unrealistic. So what is the truth? In the summer of 1984 a group of nearly 500 dietitians and their families decided to put NACNE's recommendations to the test to find out what can be achieved by altering people's eating habits to something more healthy.
The families agreed to keep detailed records of two weeks' eating and to note the changes in their lifestyle, budget and shopping habits as well. First they followed their normal eating patterns; then for the second week the famines adopted the NACNE diet The result is a fascinating insight into the problems involved in eating for health and, moreover, a practical blueprint for action, based on what is really going on in the kitchen.
'I think I am a lot more positive now that I have done it myself. I can be more forceful in the advice that I offer and say. "Look, it is possible".'
'I feel healthier for it We went out about three weeks ago and I had a huge steak, dripping in fat, and at the end of it I felt ill - it was horrid. It was enough to make me turn vegetarian and I wouldn't do it again.'
'I can now look in the mirror and see my sylph-like figure and it is tremendous to think it is all because ofthewayleat.'
