Could eating 13 Large Steak Pasties a day be the cure to obesity?

The old saying goes – An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But what if we changed the apple for pasty?

For years people have been told to watch their fat intake and with so many low fat foods, it remained a mystery as to why obesity is worse than ever!

Recent new guidelines suggest that too much sugar is more of a hazard to our bodies than fat!

The recommended daily allowance of sugar in the UK is 70 grams for men. A large Cornish Pasty contains just five grams of sugar, so in theory we could eat 14 Large Steak Pasties a day, which would equal our daily recommended intake of sugar!

So, going by the government guidelines, that fat isn’t bad for you, we could lose weight by cutting our sugar intake by 5 grams a day.

That would be 13 Large Steak Pasties a day!
