    Just been replying on the SW forum about this.

    It appears that she had a heart defect. She may well have died just going to the gym. Obviously I doubt the papers would have mentioned how dangerous going to the gym could have been for her.

    On another note

    It's very sad indeed but the fact is she could have died if irrespective of her being on LL or not. If you follow the diet correctly there are thousands of healthy men and women now not suffering from obesity related illnesses as a result. It's all about balance. I'm sure people die while they doing WW or SW too.

    The media like to sensationalise things IMO. She just HAPPENED to be on LL at the time she died. If she was having a bath at the time she died would the bath be to blame?

    The papers like to have a field day and need a scapegoat - which is LL in this case. No more, no less.

    Couldn't agree with you more.

    As sad as it is, from what Dr's have said she already had this condition and it was just unfortunate that she was on LL at the time. If she had been on WW, SW or calorie counting this story would never of made it to the papers.

    They never put stories about people who die of heart attacks because they are fat. Only because they are dieting. ;)
