I don’t often recommend you sit down and watch the TV but the Horizon programme on BBC2 on Wednesday was definitely worth watching. It was called Sugar vs Fat and it highlighted what happens when you consume too much fat or sugar.
In a nutshell… the programme focused on two doctors who just happen to be identical twins – which really helped with the study, as everything about them apart from their diet was pretty much the same. The programme was also very scientific – so there was no guess work and lots of assessments into their physical health. Assessments are vital – if the trainers/medics etc you work with are not assessing what you’re doing in this area…then they must be guessing. Time to move on and find a better trainer.
In conclusion: the programme showed that fad diets don’t work!! The answer to weight loss and healthy living is to look at your nutrition, amend it if need be…..and take EXERCISE. Simples.
If you missed the programme I recommend you watch it on iplayer and let me know what you think.
