    In spite of walking to work or to do our shopping

    Hello,

    "In spite of walking to work or to do our shopping
    , we spend our time sitting in cars, and despite government health warnings, we eat more and more so-called ‘junk’ food and drink more and more high-calories drinks. "

    Is the bold sentence equivalent to the following?

    "In spite of walking to work or (walking) to do our shopping ..."

    Yes. Write high-calorie drinks.

    The singular is "calorie", not "calory".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Good grief. Another embarrassing pre-coffee post. Thanks for pointing out my mistake.
