This is why healthy eating DOESN’T work.

“Hey, Vin, how many calories do you think are in these chicken thighs?” is what a friend asked me the other day.   “Erm, I’m not sure, I don’t eat them often, let me look it up” So we checked it out on the Waitrose website. One thigh contained 286 calories....
