    I've just heard an article on Radio 4 about LL, basically saying that people weren't warned about the side effects (hair loss, irregular periods, blah blah blah):rolleyes:

    It's on the Now show (I think it's called) at 7.30pm tonight on BBC1 too.

    Just what people on VLCDiets need, more ammunition for people to throw at us:sigh:

    Just thought I'd let you know if you want to watch, or to warn you to expect comments from 'friends' in the morning.

    Have just been reading bout this on BBC health (link for anyone interested - BBC NEWS | England | Diet company 'misled' its clients ). It's interesting stuff and I do think the article is well balanced (good old BBC!). I do think some counsellors are a bit choosy about the information they give out - certainly my counsellor was on the diet without medical supervision and did rely solely on the literature to give out very important information around side effects. Ultimately I do belive in the success of VCLDs, unfortunately there are still a few cowboys out their who spoil the image for everyone. My LLC also had her Mum/Husband weigh us when she couldn't do meetings - neither were locums which according to the article is a breach of the rules. It's a shame that this program will cast a negative image over a great program but I think it's quite important that poor quality LLCs are brought up to a higher standard.
