You remember the Mars advert?


“A Mars a day helps you work, rest and play”


Balanced Eating


Do you know what else a Mars a day would do?


All else being equal?


At 260 calories per Mars Bar, that would equate to 27lbs (just shy of two stone) of weight gain per year.


Eat, exercise and generally live one way……..


And do exactly the same and add a Mars a day in………


And you’ll end up two stone heavier.


Not demonising Mars Bars, sugar, chocolate, etc (check our briefing meeting at RISE in Macclesfield if you like the sound of somewhere that doesn’t demonise certain foods, but would rather help you find a way to get the balance right).


Same calculation can be done with the apple a day that keeps the doctor away.


10lbs per year.


Or anything else that people may consider ‘healthy’ or ‘unhealthy’.


Balanced eating


The point is that you can have the Mars a day (or equivalent)……….


If you adjust elsewhere to keep the average in a deficit (or maintenance). Balanced eating.


Or you might decide said Mars isn’t worth it.


Either way – the impact of those small, seemingly inconsequential, changes over time……….


Adds up!


Much love,


Jon ‘Crunchie’ Hall and Matt ‘Milky Way’ Nicholson
