Was that on the news today? It has been on before, and it seems to work for a lot of people.


#3

Yes … it was today’s news (I think BBC1 ? About 1pm)

The figures I used were the ones they stated.
They also interviewed a couple of people !


#4

Did you, what did they say?


#5

Something about Hunzas perhaps … can’t remember exactly what they said


#6

#7

That’s the one !!
Was on the news earlier


#8

I was reading that earlier as well. It doesn’t seem much, 800 calories a day for 3 months, don’t they say if your calorie intake is too low it slows your metabolism down?
I wonder what make the shakes there having are

A good friend of mine was on a trial of that programme as he was quite overweight but also had diabetes, after three months he lost a load of weight (quite a few stone) and his markers for diabetes had completely reversed. A year on and he has controlled his weight back on normal food and he is in good health.
