Obesity, Weight Gain & Large Food Portions

Weight Gain, Larger Portions
King size food portions are linked to obesity and weight gain, according to the British Dietetic Association. Adults and children alike are being encouraged to eat more with Triple pack and deep filled sandwiches, 'Meal deals' containing high fat and high calorie snacks such as chips and sweetened drinks, and offers such as '25% extra free' candy bars and ready processed meals. Bars are adding to the weight gain problem, some no longer offer traditional measures of125ml of wine and 25ml spirits, instead offering 175ml wine or more, and 35ml or more spirits. This can lead to over eating and substantial weight gain over a period of time.

High Fat, High Calorie Meals Encouraged
In most fast food restaurants, choice is usually limited to high calorie, low nutrient foods like French fries and sugar-rich drinks which come in super sizes. Although they offer standard sizes, the price structure often penalises consumers for choosing smaller portions.

Weight Loss Studies - Overeating
Weight loss studies show that we eat more than normal when served large portions. We quickly get used to those big portions, so that we need to eat more to satisfy our hunger. Big 'Value for money' portions are engrained into our psyche but bigger is rarely better when it comes to food. This type of marketing promotes overeating and contributes to the spiralling increase in the rate of obesity and weight gain in both adults and children. The true price of larger portions is larger people with larger health problems.
