food 1647733c Eating Foods Advertised on TV

If you were to only eat food that was advertised on television, your diet would be laden with huge amounts of sugar and fat and virtually no fresh fruit and vegetables, according to researchers

from Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, GA, who analyzed what would happen if someone ate 2000 calories a day only from foods that were advertised on TV. Based on the analysis, a daily diet of food from TV ads would include the following:

  • 25 times the recommended servings of sugar
  • 20 times the recommended servings of fat
  • Less than half the recommended servings of vegetables, fruit and dairy products
