Ballet fatties told to hold the chips

When the dancers return from their five-week holiday this week, they will be invited by ballet heads to special healthy eating seminars organised by UK dance performance specialists to try to get the balance back. Ballet dancers are often admired for their unobtainably svelte and muscular figures, but in fact they are notorious for having bad diets and unhealthy lifestyles, including chain-smoking to control their weight.
