Unlimited soft drinks!

I think it is mad that a large restaurant chain serves free unlimited soft drinks with their meals. No wonder we are an obese nation.

I was with a large friend recently who drank 3 large glasses of free lemonade with her meal. I suspect she had more calories in the drink than the food.

And before you ask I am not a 'slim Jim' but I do try not to overeat or drink like I used to.

Some people will eat and drink ad nauseam if it's free.

These 'All You Can Eat for £x' are just as bad.

Yes. And the worst of it is - they don't have a tap for fizzy water. If you want another one of those, you have to pay!
