Has anyone in the UK seen this show.

Basically each week the focus in on a really unhealthy family who have the worst diet possible. This health nutritionist then comes in and tells them what they are doing wrong, gives them a new healthy diet.

One family of five were eating thirty kilos of processed meat a month and twelve loathes of the cheapest white bread you could buy each week, plus about six bottles of coke a week. They complained they didn't have enough money to eat healthily but they spent £80 a week on carry outs.

Anyway the interesting bit is when she comes back eight weeks later to see how the family are doing. All of them lose lots of weight and a multiple of problems dissapear like cramp, headaches, cramp, lack of sex drive, low energy, deppression etc.
And they all look amazing plus none of them want to go back to their heart attack style diet because they all feel and look so good.

A lot of people are surprised at what symptoms go away when they change their diet that they never expected to. My mother, for instance, was happy to find out that her knee pain went away with the Atkins diet.

Since i started eating very healthfully 2 years ago, i've noticed all the things that experts say about improved nutrition: more energy, no illness. Eating well is preventative medicine. I encourage everyone adopt a healthy diet.

Also, alcohol is horrible for your body (i am not speaking about wine). There is no nutritional benefit from consuming it. Stop drinking alcohol. I realize this may sound ridiculous to some. However, those who are drinking now and continue to do so will pay for their choice with health problems in their later lives.
