Despite a soaring number in gym memberships, despite an increasing obsession with fitness, nutrition and wellness, and despite the diet and fitness industry being worth billions of dollars, research shows that people are still continuing to gain weight.
My belief is that we are all over complicating the whole thing, and that if we all returned to a ‘not so long ago era’, where people’s relationship with food and exercise was far less complicated and far less obsessive, then most of us would lose weight very quickly, and would also be able to maintain that desired physique for the majority of our adult lives. It’s a theory that I feel very passionately about, but I put my hands up and confess that I’m not an expert on this subject, which is precisely why I invited a well regarded expert on to the show to debate, and pick holes in my theory.
Dr Aseem Malhotra is an award winning consultant cardiologist and is one of the most influential health campaigners in the UK. In between writing for academic journals and sharing his expert advice on notable TV stations such as the BBC, Channel 4 and CNN, he wrote a best selling book called the ‘Pioppi diet’.
As quoted from Dr Malhotra’s website:
‘This is not just a cardiologist. This is a man who wants to change the world one meal at a time, by not just rocking the system, but by rebuilding it’
I enjoyed this debate immensely, and maybe there was even a winner, but who that winner was? I’ll let you be the judge of that.
