Restaurants may be forced to print the calories of meals on menus under plans being considered by Boris Johnson.

It follows a decision to let GPs prescribe Weight Watchers courses for tubby Brits.

Mr Johnson, 56, wants to put the nation — Europe’s third fattest — on a diet.

It is a U-turn for the PM, who is slimming after blaming his bulk for his life-threatening Covid-19 fight.

It is twice as likely to kill the very obese as the slim.

She said banning price promotions would “hurt thrifty shoppers, regardless of whether they are ‘living with obesity’.”
