How many calories do you eat in a day? Six people share their diets

    Britons are increasingly under-reporting their daily calorie consumption according to a new study. This not only hampers the efforts of health experts to cut rising obesity levels, but can also leave people wanting to lose weight bemused as to why they’re not making progress. Researchers suggest that when people under-report the number of calories they consume in official surveys, it causes health experts to suggest increasing physical activity, rather than cutting calorie intakes. If calorie counts were correct, they say, the UK population would actually be losing weight.

Irish tourist shot could be by mistake on holidays in Majorca

    An Irish man who was shot dead on the holiday island of Majorca could have been killed by mistake, reports claim. Police in Costa De La Calma are probing the possibility he was gunned down by mistake after being confused for a Dublin criminal because of his likeness to him, a Palma-based newspaper has claimed today. There was no official comment from the Guardia Civil, which is heading the murder probe.

Boy in the ambulance: shocking image emerges of Syrian child pulled from Aleppo rubble

    A photograph of a little boy, who sits dazed and bloody in the back of an ambulance after apparently surviving an airstrike in Aleppo, has highlighted the desperation of the Syrian civil war and the struggle for control of the city. The child is reported to be five-year-old Omran Daqneesh, one of five children injured late on Wednesday by a military strike on the city of 300,000 – the site of the most decisive battle in the civil war. The image of him sitting in an ambulance, covered head to toe with dust and so disoriented as to seem barely aware of an open wound on his forehead, has been shared thousands of times on social media. The startling image is a screenshot from a video shot and circulated by the Aleppo Media Center from inside the Syrian province. The anti-gover...

    Barbie doll Pixee Fox has gone to extreme measures to trim her waist down to a tiny 16 inches and she still doesn’t think it’s small enough. But she’s in for a shock when she finds out what her tummy shrinking corset is doing to her insides.
