Why don't French women get fat?
There are loads of theories, but in my opinion the main reason is that they don't snack.Australians, on the other hand, love to snack!
So we must be careful that the phrase "Let's catch up for coffee" doesn't really mean "Let's clock up a whole lot of extra unnecessary kilojoules"!
A large skim-milk latte (540kJ) with a slice of un-iced banana bread (818kJ) may seem like a modest choice compared with the cakes and pastries you could have had.However, it's still 20 per cent of your daily energy intake if you're on an energy-reduced weight loss diet. And it's certainly much more energy than you need from a snack.
Snacks can be OK if you're careful with your choices and aim to keep them to under 100 calories a day, or 418kj.
