Lol, I thought the same thing. They've already stuck a sugar tax on soda and the like, I was in a shop the other day, a regular can of coke was £1.05 and the diet one was £0.89.
I bought orange juice instead, £0.50 for a litre.

It's like the brilliant plan to limit the size of sodas...

I plan on having a 1/2 lb double cheeseburger with bacon and a large side of fries and a couple pints of stout for lunch.
The problem isn't so much the calories as it is laziness.
I eat like a horse and I work like one, too.
No issues with being over weight.

The true cause of the alleged "childhood obesity" in this country (I see almost no fat kids so no idea what they're on about, and I work with children on a daily basis. I suspect there are other motives), if it is caused by anything it is caused by miserable economic conditions.

The price of living continuously rises and pay for the majority never goes up, and if it does so do the prices. This means most families need both parents to work full time jobs just to survive. This means the parents (father or mother, doesn't matter.) don't have time/can't afford to properly cook for their kids so they give them cheap microwave meals.

The first step to fixing this miserable trainwreck of a country is to abolish all those worthless think tanks whose membership is composed of useless wankers from rich families with doctorates in total nonsense fields, and get some working and middle class people to actually have their voices heard in the halls of power. But that would be unprecedented in British history since 1653 AD so I wouldn't hold my breath

Its not calories in total that are an issue, its calories that are carbohydrates (sugar) that are the problem. Yes it is a "class" issue because as other posters have pointed out protein and fresh greens are expensive.

Education on the subject would be far better than taxing those who can least afford a diet change.

So the government is saying our British cousins are too fat and they need to eat less.

It's true , you'd mistake us for Americans until we open our mouths.




Authoritarian much?

Not really , recommended calorie limits are recommended not mandatory.



or even a VAT FAT TAX

Already got that , it didn't make me thinner it just made my pasty more expensive.

I'm the same, I eat all kinds of junk food but work it off. If I'm not doing much work then I just eat less.
This law is silly though as the OP said, people will just buy more if portions are smaller lol
EDIT
I am lucky though, I live on a clifftop and 'town/civilisation' is almost 300 stone steps down the hill - a few times a day that keeps me slim, especially with a couple of heavy bags of shopping.

Ding ding we have a winner...

By my diet I should be north of 250lbs easy... instead I have never broken 170, and in fact didn't stay above 150 till I passed 40 yrs old.

even when I was unemployed in Europe I still covered 4-8 miles a day walking my dogs and running.

But if you eat the right diet, the need for exercise, especially the hard aerobic sustained pure hell torture isn't needed. I was needing to bike at about 70%-80% heart rate for 6-8 hours a week just to keep my weight steady. Once I started eating the right foods/calories, I was able to ditch the hard exercise and just walk to maintain weight and overall feeling good physically, to the point where if I eat the wrong foods, I can feel the painful effects within 30-60 minutes.

I put my own shoes on today.

Took a while and I had to take a break in between, but I felt the burn.


Tomorrow?

I may even take them off. (I want to pace myself)

You have a butler for a reason old chap, don't be troubling yourself with shoes, try lifting the port glass as an alternative exercise.

Also back during WW2 people had victory gardens and grew
their own food to supplement their diets.The women canned
the foods from their gardens to feed their families through winter.
These are becoming lost skills in today's society.

I don't think its that simple, its more like pizza in uk will now taste like bland cardboard regardless of size.

Oh well this may create a profitable lard black market
