 ZM hosts Jase and PJ are definitely not shredding for summer, embarking on yet another ridiculous challenge. 

This time, the radio larrikins have set themselves the go to only eat hot chips this week, after hearing about a man who lost 50kg after eating nothing but potatoes for a year.

They're not going quite that mad, instead tackling the diet for 100 hours. 

Not sure why @jaseandpj are still doing the hot chip diet 🍟 but.... RIP.... 🤢😂

The rules to sticking to this unusual regime include not being able to eat anything other than hot chips for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The chips can be home made or bought but they can't eat the same chip for more than one meal. 

No condiments or sauces are allowed to accompany the chips either, which makes for a bland mealtime.

🍟 Strong selfie game... 😂 #ludwig

PJ is less than impressed with the #hotchipdiet.

“I reckon your energy goes downhill and mood swings kick in. We are saving the best hot chips for the last days like Nandos and KFC.”

Jase says PJ is “slightly nervous because she is a bridesmaid at a wedding this weekend and had her dress taken in last week but she might have to get it taken back out again after eating so many hot chips.”

They both agree the best hot chips they have tried so far are hand cut varieties. They particularly recommend those from Elk on Graham St.

There's a giant in the first batch #hotchipdiet 🍟🍟🍟

Jase says: “We had coffee and hot chips for breakfast in the morning and last night I just had two classes of red wine and some hot chips and went to bed.”

But while Jase is happy to endorse the unusual diet, PJ is not a fan. “I would not recommend this diet to anyone else.” 

PJ reckons her first meal after the #HotChipDiet will include “something with hot chili, coriander and garlic in a fresh salad.”

Jase is keen on some gnocchi.
