Calories on menus: the sharp shock we all need
FOR many Irish people, a sociable evening out would not be complete without a quick stop at the food takeaway on the way home.
On those busy days when we just can't face cooking, some pizza, a kebab, a burger, fried rice or noodles just might fill a gap. Often we know we are not doing our health and fitness much good – but consciences are salved with a promise to intensify the imagined exercise regime tomorrow.
But hold on a minute. Research by the Irish Independent today shows that takeaway visit could be inflicting double the damage we previously thought.
