The results were even stronger when PACE labeling was compared to no labeling alone. although we recognise the importance of reducing obesity labelling food in this way risks being incredibly triggering for those suffering from or vulnerable to eating disorders. We know that many people with eating disorders struggle with excessive exercising so being told exactly how much exercise it would take to burn off particular foods risks exacerbating their symptoms.
