UK says most Britons eat 10% too many calories

A lucid moment - likely to pass. Too bad. BTW, should be Calories, not calories.
British health officials say the country's obesity epidemic has an easy fix: people should just eat less.

In a report released on Thursday, the department of health said most adults in the nation of 60 million people are eating about 10 percent more calories than necessary. To stop the bulging waistlines, officials said the country needs to collectively trim 5 billion calories from its daily diet...

Jane Ogden, an obesity expert at the University of Surrey, was doubtful whether the government's new strategy would succeed and called for more proactive measures to limit bad food options. "It doesn't work to tell people to eat less," she said. "At the end of the day, people don't make good choices."
She is correct and the strategy will almost certainly not work.
