My recent favourite yoghourts are Yeo Valley products. But, I am pondering, how Greek-style yoghourt with honey can be promoted as 0% fat (sugar is not maybe fat, but it builds fat in our bodies). Apart from that it is absolutely delicious, and its 0% series is as yummy as the fat version.

In the wake of suggestion of the additional taxation on too fatty items, most companies started to produce only 'low fat' versions. I disagree with it: I would like to be able to choose what I eat, after all if I like to indulge myself in a fatty, unhealthy and heavenly taste of something from time to time that is none of anyone else's business; surely not any 'healthy' government. Besides, I would rather opt for promoting exercise and any form of burning calories off than living on lettuce and boiled carrots.

I agree that people are not educated enough in terms of eating and counting calories, fats and sugar. The reason for this are scientists, who cannot decide what is or not is healthy (they tend to change their mind every few years), nutritionists (healthy smoothies and yoghourts contain more calories than a sandwich, let along super-healthy juices) and manufacturers for not being clear with the key ingredients of their products. 

Nowadays it has been changing - even the smallest piece of cake comes with the label on which a number of calories it contains is as important as its price. The other day I was in a coffee shop, contemplating the visual pleasure of some sweets, trying to decide on which I was going to indulge myself until I noticed how many calories every piece had. My mouth watering, but the brain sent the red signal - 700 cals! Almost half of a daily calories intake. I left the shop confused. Apparently our digesting system has not modified yet to the modern times of plenty of food. What a shame!
