I enjoyed watching it but it didn't really tell me anything I didn't know. Porridge is good for you; more lean protein in your sandwich will fill you for longer than stodgy bread or fat laden mayonnaise; a bowl of soup is lower in calories than a rich pasta dinner and will help you avoid eating to much of said pasta; and calcium is good for you but choose low fat dairy products.
Hmmm!!

By the way, is the presenter related to Sarah Beeney? She kept reminding me of her.
That soup one got me - how many times have I sat in a restaurant of planned a menu and pretty well everyonesays "well I fancy the soup but it will fill me up too much"

the nuts thing was interesting I thought but agree those statistics were pointless and she was annoying. BTW I though t the brides eating yogurt DID lose more weight, did I misunderstand that?

I started watching this and switched it off after 20 minutes.
Patronising pointless time-filler of a programme

Playschool for adults......

Hello Adults... today we are going to a big shop called a supermarket, it sells lots of lovely things to eat. Look at all these lovely bright colours of the biscuits. Do you like biscuits? I do..... shall we buy some?
Sums up what irritates me about these programmes, and why I avoid them.

The programme did make a few interesting points, but the patronising presentation and the spouting of statistics that were meaningless or not comprehensible got in the way. I like to feel that the programme makers have researched properly and know what they are talking about.

I liked the presenter. I hadn't seen her before.
I hadn't seen her before too - thought she was great presenting this 'Fun', informative programme.

Cherry Healey has told us how much she loves everything tonight. I think we now are all aware of her her weekly menu.

So you're saying she repeats everything the experts say and that she may be a parrot? (Said in Cherry Healey style)

Yes, it was annoying, but ate up a few more seconds everytime she did it, possibly to fiill the programme.

I think she was basically fluttering her eyelids at anyone.

The BBC seems to be trying to drive BBC 1 down to the level of BBC 3.

Like the Doc this week - Rachel Bruno: My Dad and Me, which was very good.


This again, was FUN and informative - I enjoyed it.

Couldn't stand the presenter, so lasted about two minutes. Where the hell do they get these people from and why?
