 Women Try the Biggest Variety of Slimming Tricks- 61 Diets by 45-years

A British woman has tried as many as 61 diets by the age of 45-years, according to a survey by the bread maker Warburtons.

2,000 British men and women were questioned during this poll. About 60% participants reported that their children had asked them not to buy bread, potatoes or certain fruits in the belief that these were unhealthy foods. In fact 50% of the respondents had even stopped giving their children these foods.


During the survey it was found that over 85% people did not know that calcium was an important part of their diets, with people below 26-years of age having the least amount of knowledge about the importance of calcium in their diets. 50% respondents were unaware that calcium was present in white bread. TV doctor Hilary Jones said, "All breads contribute a range of essential nutrients from protein and calcium to iron and B group vitamins."

Dr. Jones said, "An average of 61 diets over an adult lifetime could mean an awful lot of people have cut a significant amount of calcium out of their diet over the years especially if they've been avoiding calcium-rich food groups on a regular basis. It seems the British obsession with dieting could be having a detrimental effect on our nutritional intake, as many people lose sight of what constitutes a healthy balanced diet."
