I just love stories like this. The exception that breaks the health rule or just proves that what is healthy eating depends entirely on the genetic make up of the individual…
Albert Stokes (great name), 94 has ignored doctors orders (you know what’s coming) by eating fish and chips twice a day for the last 25 years (pause while we take in that fact).
The Ex lion tamer (too good!) has eaten around 18,000 haddock and a million chips from his local fish and chip shop which lies just 100 yards from his home (wouldn’t it have been cheaper to just buy the fish and chip shop?).
Albert tucks into his staple diet with either a pint of Guinness or a cup of tea and still weighs only 10 stone. He was the chip shop’s first customer when it opened 25 years ago and his custom is appreciated (I should hope so too) and he is rewarded with free fish and chips every Friday.
Albert says he got a taste for fish and chips in his years on the road with the circus and potatoes were part of his specialised act that involved cutting a potato on his wife’s head with a sword (trying not to visualise that one. Is this whilst lion taming?).
Doctors have advised Albert that his health could suffer if he does not adopt a more balanced diet.
