Here something else for you to think about:

Did you know that a meat pie has 7 teaspoons of fat and 2 slices of pizza has 4 teaspoons of fat.
Eating takeaways or fried food at home to often puts you at risk of eating too much sugar, salt and saturated fat - which is not good for the heart. It also stops you from not getting enough fibre, vitamins and minerals.

Eating healthy is the way to be, but treat yourself also just in moderation.
