      Hi folks, Just an interesting programme I came across on the BBC World Service – the series is called The Food Chain and often has relevant topics.

      This one traces the history of the calorie, concluding that for governments to continue relying on calorifuc values on food packaging to guide consumers looks increasingly misguided, if not directly harmful.

      I subscribe to the Food Chain podcast – it’s well worth exploring!

      Fantastic, Louise.

      Highly recommended for all calorie-counters and ex-calorie-counters alike!
