Despite it being three full days since Easter, Simon Williams has still yet to eat anything other than Easter eggs since Sunday morning.
The 35-year-old Basingstoke resident told us, “The plus side of a big family is lots of eggs at Easter. You could spread them out over a few weeks if you wanted to, but I prefer to eat one for every meal until they are gone, or I am.
“This morning I had a large Creme Egg Easter Egg for Breakfast, the whole egg and the two small ones in the bottom of the box. That’s a hearty way to start the day.
“For lunch, I had a KitKat one, because I wasn’t that hungry. Tonight I’m planning to treat myself to the big Thornton’s one the missus got for me, with a side of mini egg leftovers from last night’s dinner.
“I still have about a dozen eggs left, and four large Lindt bunnies, so I should be good until the weekend at the very least.”
Nutritionists have insisted that a diet of Easter eggs is likely to induce a number of health-related issues, likening his experiment to Morgan Spurlock eating nothing but McDonald’s for a year in his documentary Supersize Me, a comparison that angered Williams.
He told us in no uncertain terms, “I am nothing like that shyster. Fries are a vegetable, and they put all sorts of salad in the burgers. That is cheating on an epic scale.
“I am a puritan – it’s chocolate, or dipped in chocolate, or surrounded in chocolate, or it doesn’t go in my mouth.
The nutritionists concluded, “We’d like to think someone will have a word and stop him, but in all honesty, we’re kind of interested to see how this goes.
