            I watched the second half of this programme, can't believe it came on the same day as I joined the MDA forum, it's the primal gods telling me something

                I have watched both episodes, and I have really enjoyed them. I think they are interesting because they emphasise that the way food is produced and eaten is less than 50 years old, which is an interesting flip side to us saying we eat like a cave people, that it is basically one big experiment, which does not seem to be going well.

                The second episode outlined how super sizing and snacking developed as a norm in the food industry. Snacking was not considered acceptable up to the 70's. So again, one big experiment.
                Life. Be in it.

                    People really get angry if you say they shouldn't snack.

                      Shame they postponed the third episode, but I've been really enjoying it so far! Interesting hearing how many attempts to tell the truth have been silenced, and occasionally frustrating watching scientists latch on to one aspect without looking at the bigger picture, but overall a really positive, encouraging bit of reporting. Hurrah for the BBC!
                      Went primal for the weight loss, stayed for the quality of life!
