You Can Now Get Paid £5k To Eat Nothing But Chips And Pasta
Oh, and you'll get paid £5,000 to do it.
The lucky 'vitamin testers' will be required to take a one-a-day multivitamin for the course of a month while they continue to eat a poor diet, and will have their nutrient levels tested before and after the trial to see whether the multivitamin was effective in generating healthy nutrient levels.
When it comes to the diet, everything from white bread, chips, eggs, pasta, chicken and rice goes, so your typical Sunday hangover cheat meal might well see you quids in if your successful in being picked.
Before health critics start to wade in, Feel have made it clear that it doesn't endorse or want to replace a healthy diet with vitamin supplements, which is why only people who already eat a poor diet will be considered for the role.
Candidates will also be under the ongoing supervision of a qualified nutritionist and doctor, who will make sure each candidate is meeting their individual required calorie and macro targets, while the comprehensive multivitamin is effective in delivering the RDA of 18 key vitamins and minerals.
"It's becoming increasingly difficult to get all of the vitamins and nutrients required to live life on the go," said Boris Hodakel, co-founder of Feel.
"Although options for nutritiously balanced food are improving all the time, there are no options that can guarantee a perfectly balanced diet, and multivitamins can be a solution."
"We in no way want to encourage people to use our multivitamin as a substitute for a healthy diet, the purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of our product, outside of a lab or controlled environment, where results don't reflect reality."
"We want average members of the public to eat a version of the modern Western diet - under the watchful eye of a doctor and nutritionist, to see whether Feel is as good as we think it is, in the real world."
Vitamin deficiency in modern Western diets has been under the microscope as of late, and according to recent research conducted by the NHS, 20 to 29-year-olds have the highest rates of potential deficiencies in key nutrients like potassium (24.4%), zinc (8.6%) and calcium (9.4%), with particularly high numbers of women at risk of iron, selenium and potassium deficiency.

Only people over 18-years-old will be considered, and candidates must not have any underlying health conditions or be undergoing any form of medical treatment. You must also be able to confirm you're not allergic to any of the ingredients in the product.
