Eating Out Can Add to Obesity, FDA Report Says
by Jim Zarroli
Morning Edition, June 5, 2006 -- The Food and Drug Administration released a report Friday about the links between obesity and eating out at restaurants. The report says that no link has been proven but that people are more likely to eat more at restaurants because of the large portions and the convivial atmosphere. The restaurant industry is not happy about the report.
It's not so much the eating out that will do you in but your eating habits. If you've got good eating habits you can probably eat out all you want. If not don't go fussing at restaurants for luring you out of your house to practise your bad habits.
