Many people have been on diets where they count calories .
A new survey highlights that 63 per cent of us have not got a clue as to our daily calorie consumption.

This could be the key as to why 6 out of 10 Brits are overweight .
During the 70 and 80s many people weighed what they were going to eat and worked out the calorific content of the food prior to consumption.

Twenty years on and you have so many diet suggestions. Omit processed food. Never combine protein with carbohydrate. Eat exactly what you wish to; even eat baby food. The list is endless.
