The day of celebration was founded by husband and wife duo Thomas and Ruth Toy, who came up with the idea to tackle feelings or guilt over what you eat and diet trends. It’s a day to enjoy your favourite foods without worrying about calories, whether it’s indulging on your favourite chocolates or heading to a restaurant.
To mark the day, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best all-you-can-eat restaurants in Leeds.
