Starvation Diet. What is it?

Mmmmmm chocolate, Mmmmmm sandwich, Mmmmmm doughnuts, Mmmmmm beer. Spoilt for choice. Trying to resist. When I resist I put the money in a pot. When the pot is full I send it (the money, not the pot) to somebody who needs it to survive. The art comes about through the documentation of the process, here and in other places. There is no end to this project.

Malnutrition here and Now.

Decided to do a bit of research into malnutrition in this country and came across these bits.

This one is about people, mainly elderly, starving in this country 93 % at home or in sheltered accommodation. It has got me thinking about how starvation diet can help to address this. Is there a charity near me that helps with shopping or cooking for elderly people which myself or others could sign up to?

This one talks about what malnutrition is. Starvation is one form of it but it can also involve not getting enough of the right kind of nutrition or being able to absorb the good stuff you put into your body. If this is the criteria I wonder how many young people are malnourished in this country?

Article from the independent about the malnutrition. Even an clinically obese person can be starving or malnourished. Bit from Gordon Ramsey about fining parents who let their kids eat rubbish.
