    Jamie Oliver: Eat to Save Your Life

    Wednesday 16 January

    10:00pm - 11:40pm
    Channel 4

    Here's a piece of guilt-inducing television for anyone who's looking back fondly on a corpulent Christmas or who's already broken their "I must eat healthily" New Year resolution. Jamie Oliver prepares to scare the hell out of us by looking very closely at a typically British diet, and examining "how it could be killing us". Frankly, just the sight of the weird Dr Gunther von Hagens (the anatomist who wears a silly hat) would be enough to make me forswear chocolate biscuits. But watching him perform a postmortem on a 25-stone man "who ate himself to death", as we are promised here (no preview DVDs were available), might even make me spend the rest of my life eating cress. The aim is to look at what a bad diet can do to the human body, while Oliver sets out some easy diet-changes.

    My...gotta watch this. I loved watching
    Dr Gunther von Hagens cut up dead people in the Autopsy programme. What a fab programme that was :clap:

    They're fascinating aren't they. Did you see the one where they sliced the chap with a sort of heavy duty industrial food slicer?

    Was that before or after the chopped off his leg?

    It's so interesting isn't it. Managed to get son and his young girlfriend (both aged 15) watching it. Thought the girlfriend would go all silly, but they were riveted to it.:clap:

    I heard there were loads of complaints about the programme, but the complaints were dismissed :clap: Very educational :cool:
