Sorry, it’s due to rights issues.
Can you add a little more info to help me search for the video from other sources please? Specific title, presenter's name or similar?

PS Ignore the above. Found it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F8qXxjdh-4
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

Alan, you can generally use a free proxy server to access anything which is country specific.

Watched it on YouTube on my iPad this morning as iPlayer seemed awful slow on the iPad, so thanks for the link Alan.


What made me snigger a bit was that his GP still wasn't having it at the end when his chol had gone down.  Mind you, no mention was made of HDL/LDL and trig ratios which really should have shown a difference.  The tide is beginning to turn but so very slowly.


I would also query his slapping a great lump of butter on his roast pork.  Not because of the fat, but it just seems unnecessary.

I have ZenMate but I'm too cheap to pay full price :)

Thus I am limited to Romania, USA and Hong Kong.

Just found the time to watch this, why oh why can't it be shown nationally?

I would imagine the authorities are terrified of the day when it becomes common knowledge that their nutritional advice is killing people and has helped create the current obesity/type 2 crisis. Those poor people at the obesity clinic don't stand a chance  :(  And don't get me started on that moron that works there, not sustainable? it's the ONLY diet I've ever found to be sustainable. I've been on it now for 4 years. There's no struggle, it's easy to do, it tastes great and I'm never hungry, what more would you want from a diet?

He did say he has never liked veg so the butter would've made them taste better.  ;)
