U.K. Agency Issues Guidelines For Losing Weight And Keeping It Off

September 23, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The U.K.’s National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has issued draft guidelines for organizations that are trying to help adults and children reach and maintain a healthy weight. The guidance included a recommendation that TV and other types of screen time be restricted. People should reduce the energy density of their diet by eating fewer fried foods, less confectionery and full-fat cheese. Also suggested: following the principles of a Mediterranean diet by eating more vegetables, fruits, beans and pulses, whole grains, fish, and using olive oil instead of other fats; and eating healthy breakfast foods, such as unsweetened wholegrain cereals or bread and lower-fat milk.
