A brief mention of fasting ... and it got the thumbs up!!! We all know fasting is good for us. Great to hear it on a TV program aired to the masses.

Interview with author of The Diet Myth on morning TV.

UK Professor Tim Spector says diets don't work and your weight and health are all controlled by your gut. ... diet-myth/
Thanks Juliana, sometimes Sunrise has interesting material (tho tomorrow they may have something that contradicts this feature!!).

Dr Spector's main point is that we should eat a large diversity of (whole) foods, and should not exclude any from our diet. This will ensure a healthy gut, which leads to a healthy body which has access to a full range of nutrients. He also has some evidence that fast foods destroy a lot of gut bacteria (as do antibiotics and our obsession with cleanliness).

I (of course) love this, as it concurs with my latest thoughts! :grin:
