    The program has been put up on youtube so now watching it.

    Loved the sugar cube equivalent of foods very powerful.
    The message avoid beige carbs was good and then negated by saying freeze bread then toast frozen bread, reheat pasta and rice to produce more resistant starch. They should have done the sugar cube equivalent again to show how little reduction there was. As I think people will see this and assume they're seriously cutting carbs by freezing/chilling then cooking, and I suspect it's only very mild reduction in beige carbs.

    Just got to the swilling sports drink. OK burnt a few more calories (less than 7% more).

    Dr Unwin - great man got the point across that green veggies contain carbs, cut the crap and eat real food.

    The carb cutting patient experiment was very powerful.

    All in all a very positive program.
    One is too many a thousand not enough.

    Brian, I do hope she is willing to at least try and see if it helps her.
    This is a very positive outcome to the programme and hopefully if your wife thought it thought provoking, I am hoping a lot of other people will find it similar
    Trust the process, the results will come

    Thanks Rosey
    Sue - the first "no thank you" is the easiest

    I might watch this on iPlayer then. Didn't expect it to be so positive.

    Sounds likes the Daily Mail article sums up the program. Thanks Rosey and thanks for the noted Linda.
    Brian, let’s hope it gets your wife thinking.

    I watched thinking this is going to be the same as other programmes but was pleasantly surprised at the end.

    Yes there were some points that could have been bolder eg forget about freezing bread and toasting for do not eat bread. However, tv programmes are partly for entertainment, we, as a small handful of the population, watched it out of interest but we are already converted so we will find fault. For those who only dappled with low carb or never heard of this lifestyle way of eating it needed to grab their imagination from the start, with the sugar cubes.

    Those perhaps who should have watched were probably watching something else or more concerned with texting on their phones.

    The message is very slowly spreading, once dieticians and Government food advisors change their thinking, training and information they give to clients/patients, MPs then hopefully we will see a major shift. Hopefully we will not have to wait for all the die hards to leave the profession before younger wider thinking trainee dieticians are given their chance.

    I watched with my wife - the sugar cube bit might have hit home with her - Here's been me harping on for at least 8 years and now finally I start to get some creedance. Ever the optimist that things will change in our food cupboards and fridge.
