    The Men Who Made Us Fat

    BBC - BBC TV blog: The Men Who Made Us Fat: Are you TOFI?

    First of a three part series on the BBC which should be available on bbc.co.uk/iplayer if you can get hold of it.
    Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with the truth.

    Ha! They just recommended Primal Blueprint in its barest form! Win.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Couldn't watch, but I did read the text.

    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 am here to learn, i have a long way to go

    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.
