In brief: I think so
I was in england and rationing decreased calorie intake.
Everyone was healthy. We in america eat far too much and a great deal of it is empty calories. After the war the calories went up and health declined. Unhealthy diet is a huge cause of disease and the health in this country now is appalling.
