Size Inflation & Counting the Calories: From The Economist
The Economist finds that the average British size-14 pair of women’s trousers is today more than four inches wider at the waist than a size 14 in the 1970s, and over three inches wider at the hips. This means that today’s size 14 fits like a former size 18; a size 10 fits like an old size 14.
A study by myprotein.com has shown the deceitful habits of British men. The truth-stretching statistics are revealed with 21% of them claiming to regularly underplay how many calories they consume.
