Drastic diet surgery guarantees cheap meal in town10/05/2012 - 17:40:40
Diners in a Brazilian town are allowed half-price meals if they've had gastric band surgery.
A new legislation has been passed in Campinas – where between five and eight gastric band procedures are performed every week - that will enable the former fatties who have gone under the knife to get a 50% discount at the town's restaurants.
Councillor Francisco Sellin explained the law was created because diners who have a gastric band eat less so it wasn't fair to make them pay full price for a meal.
He said: "People with a gastric band eat less than half what everyone else eats. If they order a dish from the menu they’ll only manage to eat a fraction of it. They shouldn’t have to pay the same."
