  • Horizon TV Program

    Hi All

    For those of us in the UK there is a Horizon program on BBC2 on Monday 6th August (tomorrow) called:- Eat, Fast & live longer. It is about the benefits of Intermittent Fasting, could be interesting though it's not related to Primal/paleo.
    Article about it here

    Cheers for the heads up

    No doubt it will be on you tube soon afterwards, most horizons are there if you look.

    Michael Mosley has done some very interesting programms over the years, he did one a few years ago about losing weight - no mention of low carb if I remember right, but things like observing that feeding a bunch of TA soilders the same food, but one lot had it blitzed into a soup, the soup eaters were full for longer?!? Then there was the Truth about excersise one recently. I would not be suprised if he does a primal/paleo one soon, his reseach into diet, excersie and IF is bound to have made him aware of ancenteral eating.

      Yes, it's been an interesting series of programs. Did you see the three parter of "The Men Who Made us Fat"? Quite an expose of HFCS and the way profit and marketing are way ahead of any health concerns.

          My boss was talking to someone really high up in the NHS, someone to do with nutrition policy and asked her what the officials had made of TMWMUF.
          They just said its an American problem with the corn fructose, makes you wonder if by had even bothered watching it.
          In my job I work with academics who do research papers on public health. I was discussing with one of them a few weeks ago re the obesity epidemic and that I thought the paleo lifestyle was a solution. He just looked at me as if I was mad and started going on about the Mediterranean Diet is the healthiest.

            HFCS -> Glucose syrup, inverted glucose syrup, dextrose, same type of shit, different name IMHO, and there is plenty of that type of crap in UK food.

            I think the only reason we don't have some much of the HFCS is that I don't think we have the climate to grow corn and get huge surpluses like in the USA, so we (ie food companies not me personally) use what ever else is cheap.

                I've tried alternate day fasting before and found it quite easy once you get into it. Maximum of 500 calories a day is considered a fasting day which is not too bad. I now find it easier though to fast from say 9pm one evening until 1 or 2pm the next with no food, just drinks. Twice a week works for me.
                I've let that slip recently but think I'll try to get back to it as I'm at a sort of plateau of 14st7lb and would like to get to 14 st.
                Started from 17st7lb at Xmas so I'm not panicking about it.

                  Just watched on catch up the Horizon on skin ageing.
                  The anti ageing expert said to eat fatty fish and colourful veg which I expected but she also said don't eat bread, pasta and rice.
                  They also said sugar had a big impact and contributed to ageing.
                  Rather pleased, that I am already eating e correct diet.

                    It's nice when science reinforces what we're doing. I suspect science rubbishes it just as often but I choose to ignore them1

                      It was interesting to watch as it was in the mainstream media but some of the features were very extreme.

                      I am sure food companies sponsor these types of programs.

                      Alternate day eating with a trip to the Drive thru fast food joint on your day of feeding!

                      The last 15 mins where he actually tried a plausible approach (Brad Pilons approach) and lost weight and felt a ton better was interesting though and has been my personal experience.

                      These programs could be made a lot more informative though rather than sensationalist!

                        Did nobody pick up on the message that we should still be eating low fat, and much lower protein though? Particularly in relation to reducing igf1 and thus reducing risk of cancer and heart disease.

                          I wonder what it needs reducing to? That part about going into a fast food place...c'mon... for real!

                            Yeah, my mum was super harassing me to watch that show, I said I think they have some of it right about IF but I got annoyed after the guy started peeling the apple and chucking the rest away. I left to do some other things and she mentioned what they'd about lowering protein...which made me pretty dubious as well as them banging on about calorie restriction. She was adamant that I should watch and it.

                              It's BBC so publicly funded no adverts or sponsors allowed. Going to the fast food place was just a way to show it didn't matter about high or low fat the results were the same.

                              Until he does a program on Paleo/Primal you're always going to have a certain amount of low fat bias as its so programmed into people's minds.
