X Factor and Strictly Make You Fat

  • FORZA poll found some alarming results
  • 62% admit to eating in front of the telly when not hungry

A recent poll by FORZA Supplements about eating habits has highlighted some alarming results which found that hit TV shows including X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing make you fat.

Dieters are said to be far more likely to lapse watching shows which can be enjoyed as a family. Six out of ten (62%) viewers admitted to eating in front of the television even when not hungry. A further 58% admitted they would share a partner’s snacks ‘just because they are there.’

And a staggering 82% of slimmer’s said they were less likely to snack if they were watching programmes alone. The two worst shows for weight gain were X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing. Other programmes which slimmer’s should avoid include The Great British Bake Off and soaps like Coronation Street and EastEnders.

Lee Smith FORZA’s managing director commented, "It is clear from these findings that Simon Cowell makes you fat.”

"He specialises in those big shows where we can all gather around the TV as a family and watch together.”

"That kind of environment is deadly for dieters because you end up eating the wrong kind of food even if you are not hungry.” "There will be a big bowl of crisps which can be shared by everyone which is bad news for anyone who lacks willpower."

It's clear to see that many of us struggle with our weight particularly with the allure of Saturday night television, we're lucky that many of these shows are not shown throughout the year!
