A Notice on the wall in Chip Shop

Cheat meal last night, stood in the award winning chip shop Hogdsons in Lancaster, and noticed a sign on the wall that stated:-

"A Portion of fish and chips has less fat than a chocolate bar"

and

"Fish and chips are a good source of essential fatty acids"

How can they get away with saying that?

Made me chuckle and perhaps telling my girlfreind maybe a little too loudly, one of the lads behind the counter gave me a death glare....

    did they state what size the F&C was or infact what size the choccy bar was. Yeah the F&C probably does contain essential fats but whether or not they are undamaged or in good ratios to bad fats is another story.

    if you are eating F&C you shouldnt really be worried about the macro content. I would say its a better cheat than a KFC or other such processed rubbish. At least its natural and fresh.

    As Paul stated its not possible to make claims like this without stating amounts. Maybe they ment one of those huge chocolate bars . Their second statement is true, but misleading as getting omega sixes is not an issue for anyone on a typical or BB diet.

    and they probably fry in veg oil which is high in 06, yes technically an essential fat but like ink says no chance of deficiency in a western diet.

    yes as stated they contain 06 from the oil they have been fried in. However its abit like advertising coffee as containing an effective sports performance enhancer, ie caffeine.

    its there so they can sell more F&C to the public and they can eat it in knowing that its good for them. Yes misleading but not strickly a lie. Without putting on quantities in the comparison its not possible to verify the claims.

    There's been a radio advertisement running on the local northeast radio stations lately making similar claims about fish and chips being a good health meal less than 700 cals a serving.

    AAARRrrrrrrggggHHHhhhh!!

    Reading this is making me crave! On a cut at the moment and one of my biggest cravings is a portion of fish and chips!
    I haven't had any since the winter and I've been craving solidly for 2 weeks now!
    Was thinking about it for this weekend..must resist...must..resist!

    I wonder how much fat/carbs in a serving?

    nah Big D, I'm not competing :) but the way I've been dieting you would have thought so...

    Yeh I think I should go and reward myself this weekend with a good portion. I know I'll satisfy the craving and get those EFA's in

    Hey Sj84. Any chance of shortening that long link in your signature 'cos it's making the page have to scroll sideways? Try http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/fb.asp?m=1056782 instead.

    Eating anything with omega-6 in (in terms of fried food) cant be good, since wester diets have too much of this in it already. Omega-6 couteracts Omega-3, made worse by the lack of Omaga-3 found in most of what we eat comepared to years ago.

    Look at this:
    Some medical research has suggested that excessive levels of omega-6 acids, relative to Omega-3 fatty acids, may increase the probability of a number of diseases. Modern Western diets typically have ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 in excess of 10 to 1, some as high as 30 to 1. The optimal ratio is thought to be 4 to 1 or lower.

    Tell them to stick that sign up their ar5e.

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.
    There is no room for junk food in any diet whatsoever, leave the junk in the bin.

    it s also been a bit of a cheat weekend too. Utterly disgusted in myself (wouldnt bother with the New Mcd's quarter pounder either they're horrible....)

    Choc bronwnie cheesecake
    garlic bread with mozzarela (starter)
    maybe 10 bottles of lager
    summer quarter pounder with large fries....



    No chest training at weekend, due to feeling so cr@p from drink, and dodgy left shoulder still plus Overdone it on the old deadlifting and bothered an old sacroiliac joint injury in lower back.

    Sorry to go off track but well pissed off today.

    I would tell chip shop owners to stick the sign up their @rse but i gonna try and keep out of there from now on....
