Attempting to tackle the 'super-sized' fried breakfast
As part of his investigation into why British people are on average nearly three stone (19kg) heavier than 50 years ago, Jacques Peretti attempts to eat what is thought to be one of Britain's biggest fried breakfasts.
A reflection of the rise in popularity of super-sizing food, Jester's diner in Great Yarmouth serves a breakfast that includes 8 eggs, 12 rashers of bacon, 12 sausages, potatoes, mushrooms, hash browns, black pudding, beans and 12 slices of bread.
It is called the "Challenge Kidz Breakfast" because it weighs the same as a small child, around 9lbs.
The second episode of The Men Who Made Us Fat is broadcast on BBC Two at 21:00 BST on Thursday 21 June. Or watch again via iPlayer (UK only). Jacques Peretti's article about internal fat can be read on the BBC TV blog.
