THINK choosing a supermarket salad will help you slim down for summer? Think again. Some actually contain MORE fat and calories than a Big Mac.

Hon Pas rieh And that's not the only "healthy" option that makes you tubbier. There are whole ranges of salads, sandwiches "h you rang and ready meals that make a burger look like diet food.

Nutritionist Angela Dowden says: "A salad can be high in calories, especially those with pasta and creamy sauces.

"Some salads don't even contain one portion of your vital five a day."
