Every day Rudy heads off to the local chippy for his portion of fries, but 32 years on he isn’t facing a single health issue.
“I always eat my chips at home, because I can never easily decide what sauce I want. I do it every night except when I’ve got the flu. That happened once and even then I missed my chips immensely. I felt my body was asking for chips.”
Rudy’s daily habit started when he was 14: “I’m not bothered about whether it’s healthy or not. In life you should do and eat what you like!”
Health expert Tanja Callewaert says it’s not a good idea to eat chips on a daily basis: “I’d like to know what else he eats. Potatoes are healthy. If they are made ready in a vegetable fat, it’s not too risky.”
“If this guy doesn’t vary his diet as a whole, then he could be short on vitamins and minerals. If he’s not overweight, then that means his calorie intake isn’t too big.”
