Thanks.

If I have another "I'm on a NY diet, I'm only eating low-fat crackers with low-fat spread" conversation, I'm going to scream...I've been good though and just let it go...

Repeated tonight at 11.20 - another chance to record for people like me who missed this yesterday ( or even watch live if you can stay awake long enough)

Lil, it looks as though it's next week, not tonight.

I think I'll be watching if I can - hubby will probably grimace at another 'food/diet' programme. He is very slim and muscular (I know, lucky ol me) and tends to favour a higher carb lower fat diet just by natural preference rather than thinking about it (he trims fat off meat, and eats a bowl towering with fruit & fibre & a banana each morning) whilst I'm certainly not scared of fat and, whilst I do still enjoy carbs in all their forms, am beginning to reduce the amount I eat.
