“Feeding the enemy”

repetitive, any segment featuring Gillian McKeith!

There's no shortage of programs on TV about food, eating and weight, but this latest offering from Channel 4 had a bit of a spin: while the issue of obesity is tackled, the real focus is on being seriously underweight - which seems quite novel, to me! The idea is simple: take one seriously...

“Which one are YOU!”

I weirdly like it, gives out a good message!

Maybe the section mentioned in the review towards ...

This programme follows two different people with completely different diets. One is obese and the other is really skinny probably anorexic. The show tries to show us that both are just as bad as the other. They get weighed and measured at the start of the programme and then are shown the results...

“Current but controversial”

published 04/08/2009

Addresses current weight issues

Candidates exchange one unhealthy diet for another
