    Lost 10 stones on LL/Exante a couple of years ago, have regained several stone so giving WW a go.
    The girl doing CD posts on the CD board, she was beside herself worrying how the show was going to portray her - when she found out what they were calling it she wanted to pull out but they wouldn't let her. She got roped in to do the pilot, never to be seen by the viewing public, the show was originally supposed to go out next summer but it got brought forward and they needed to use the pilot people as they had a longer time span of footage of their diets. They twisted her arm to do it. I have to say though that I though she came across really well. Sensible and honest bless her.
    Looking forward to next week - LL and Dukan. Should be interesting!

    I was seriously unimpressed with the CD counsellor! You'd think that if you knew you were being filmed you would put some extra effort into offering some proper emotional support rather than just telling your client to avoid having an accident in her pants! I'll be watching next wek about LL for sure.

    yes, the CD counsellor was awful! Didn't really have anything positive to say.
    Think it's an interesting series, especially with a Doctor saying that some VLCD are actually a good idea!

    Just watched it on 4oD myself...

    Hmm, yes, the CD councillor was not a good advert! Lol... Although the girl doing CD was great... came across really well, and I really felt for her... :)

    I was not at all keen on the the 'diet doctor', Anu Bhatia though... She was carrying a little extra weight herself tbh, although yes, she might still be very healthy... but she had a bit of a nerve, poking and prodding people, and was being unnecessarily blunt. Verged on rudeness... telling a women who'd been successful on previous diets, that she hadn't coz she's put it back on!! Ok, so she's not been successful in keeping it off, but she had done very well at losing it, so she was wrong!... seriously! Annoyed me!

    ...and she kept turning her head to the left, the right, the left, the right... the whole time she's talking to camera... Grrrrrr!! She wound me up!! Lol...

    /and breathe. ;)

    Interesting programme though...
