Half The Girls In UK Starve To Stay Slim

As many as 50% of the teenaged girls in the UK are virtually starving themselves to stay slim, according to a research conducted by the Food Standards Agency and Sugar magazine. // Some of these girls are reported to be as young as 13 years. The findings showed that 50 per cent always skip breakfast and do not know what normal eating habits are.

Twenty-five per cent admitted they eat ‘as little as possible,’ while ten per cent said they are constantly following a slimming plan. Fifteen per cent made themselves sick to keep their weight down. And, in their bid to look slim, the figure-conscious teenagers often end up taking unhealthy diet, reveals the study.

While one in ten thronged on fast food like burgers, chips and pizza on a daily basis, nearly half said they always downed fizzy drinks. However, a third admitted their poor diets were the cause of arguments with their parents. The girls are missing out on vital nutrients required by the human body. Eating fruits instead of crisps will go a long way in improving their health, according to the study.
