Do not display the calories on menus

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

The UK government wants to bring in and enforce restaurants and cafes displaying the EXACT calorie and fat (etc) contents within the food displayed on the menu.

This is to ‘tackle’ the obesity crisis in the UK. While obesity is of course an issue, so is being underweight.

An Eating Disorder is a mental health disorder that causes the victim to become obsessed with what and how much is going into what they’re eating. They will sometimes compensate with behaviours that are extremely unhealthy, and will be more at risk.

When myself and many others made the difficult decision to recover from our Eating Disorder, we also swore to stop counting calories and compensating for eating.

These new rules can and will cause many relapses. Again, I understand obesity is a problem but this is not the way to go about it.

If you, or someone you love is currently suffering/recovering or is recovered from an Eating Disorder and please sign and share this petition. 

Sincerely, Lili. An Anorexia survivor.
