The UK loves fast food and soft drinks nearly as much as their originator, the USA, and quite rightly this week, leading nutrition experts expressed alarm over a US pressure group led by scientists that is downplaying the risks of junk food and sugary drinks in favour of exercise in the fight against obesity. The claims come as Coca Cola itself announced that its drinks don’t cause obesity.
The Global Energy Balance Network behind the new claims is a non-profit group promoting research into the causes of obesity and it focuses mainly on the need for people to increase their physical activity as the key to achieving a healthy weight.
As a Derby based nutritionist and personal trainer, I’ve accrued enough experience and qualifications to understand that a healthy lifestyle and weight management are a combination of exercise and a healthy understanding and approach to diet. It of course comes as no surprise that Coca Cola was found to have contributed $1.5million towards the creation of the GEBN and administers its website, according to the New York Times. And subsequently, a spokesperson for the GEBN was forced to admit that ’unequivocally that diet is a critical component of weight control, as are exercise, stress management, sleep and environmental and other factors”.
