Nanny state or a good idea?
Most people accept that the smoking ban and restrictions on sales of alcohol are a good idea, what about measures to supposedly make us consume less calories?
Mike Bloomberg, candidate for US president, introduced several measures when he was mayor of New York to reduce calorie intake. Laws were introduced to remove free toys from fast food children’s meals, limit portion sizes of sugar sweetened drinks and post calorie levels on menus in restaurants. All these were shown to have a beneficial effect as they allow people to make more informed choices. NewWeigh places education and information about healthy eating, lifestyle and weight management at the centre of what we do.
Understanding how to make good choices is helped by the handy guide in our Meal Replacement Plan booklet which you can download here MRP Booklet or collect from any NewWeigh Pharmacy.
