Answering the question, he further said, “I wish I was as disciplined as has been reported. Like all of us, I start the week with the best of intentions and then you hit contact with reality at some point." 

The PM tries to control his cravings every Monday after an indulgent weekend and tries to have a day of fasting. However, he sometimes fails to stick to his resolution. "But it's not totally nothing, but largely nothing. I do have the odd nut. I start with the best of intentions, as we all do, but then things happen," he added.
