Germany: Merkel slims down after ditching biscuits for veg

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been reported by the German newspaper Bild to have quit eating bread, biscuits and raw pork since December 2013, enabling the politician to shed 10kg (22 Ibs) of body fat.

Looking slimmer since her skiing accident at the end of 2013, Merkel has reportedly stopped having biscuits on the table during daily Chancellory meetings, replacing the sugary snacks with unprocessed food such as fresh leeks, peppers and carrots.

The 59-year-old is also alleged to have given up the German delicacy Mettwurst, a combination of raw pork mince spread on bread, along with cheese rolls as part of her new eating habits.
