A biscuit is just a biscuit:
. . . then there’s this one:
* If it is good for you it’s not fattening, so as long as you are eating it for the calcium content there’s no need to worry about the kilojoules in cheese and ice cream.
* Kilojoules only count when you’re enjoying eating them.
* Following from that: anything you don’t like isn’t fattening so if you develop an aversion to chocolate or champagne it’s fine to have as much as you like, even if you have to indulge in quite a lot of them before developing the aversion.
* Kilojoules shared are kilojoules halved. Any amount of food divided between six meals will have only half the energy value of the same amount of food consumed in three.
* Anything eaten to protect someone else from temptation is kilojoulefree becuase you are performing a service.

A US study found that monkeys fed restricted calorie diets had improved intellectual ability and physical health as they aged.
Researchers think people would find similar benefits from similar diets.
