This dude reckons you can lose weight on a diet of pies and beer

New 29/09/2016

Looks like we've been dieting our entire lives... 

According to Story reporter, Julian Lee.

Today marks the first day of a pie- and beer-only diet.


The idea of the experiment is to prove there's no special trick to dieting and all that matters is putting in less energy to your body than you use during the day and you will lose weight.


For breakfast, lunch and dinner I'll be eating pies only and, on a Friday, I can exchange one pie for three beers, which has a similar amount of calories.


Women need less calories than men, who need 2500 calories a day. The pie and beer diet is only 1600 calories a day - two-thirds of what a man needs, which means there will be weight loss.
