MARY Berry can fit into the same clothes she wore 40 years ago because she's sensible. That's the awful truth. The unacceptable truth. The "for God's sake give me a second helping" truth.

At 78, her lifespan covers exactly the years during which the world first got fat, then got obese. This woman, whose life revolved around food, all day, every day, long before she became a mega TV star, is as thin as when she was a slip of a 24-year-old.

According to her -- and this is not a woman who would lie to you -- she is actually thinner now than she was in her 20s.
