Just in case you missed it, I thought I would flag up the following program on BBC2 tonight at 2100hrs:
I have high hopes for this program as Horizon has provided some quality viewing in the past. What is interesting here is that there is acknowledgement in the write up that it is not all about 'diet and exercise'. This is something central to the paleo movement. We KNOW this to be the case....it is just that everyone is about 40,000 years behind us.
Somehow I still think there will be many people who come away from this program thinking that obesity is out of their control and that fundamentally, it is still about 'eat less, do more'.
Sadly many members of the medical and political establishment will be the ones left with this deeply ruinous impression. I would go so far as to say that many members of the medical and political establishment will not watch this program because they KNOW it is all about eating less and doing more.
Finally a warning for all the paleo people out there - beware....you might catch fatness.
As the French say, "Baise-moi!"
