    I found it very disturbing yet seductive at the same time. Brought me back to the days BC when I was a size 4-6. (Before child!!!) BUT!!!!! I have grown up a lot since then and would never want my daughter to aspire to that level of obsessive starving and excercising.

    What are everyone elses views on this very worrying media trend, the lengths these two journalists went to loose over a stone in 5 weeks was horrendous (they where size 12 to start) Really makes you think sanity and a few extra pounds aint so bad.??

    I found it a really disturbing programme and I'm glad I'm no longer on a diet. :eek:

    Both became obsessed with food though. One binged and purged and the other one thought about food endlessly. Awful. :(

    I recorded it on Sky Plus, so I'll be watching it later. Glad I did now, because it looks like it's caused quite a stir.
