    Ha, I love Nigella! She lives on another planet, admittedly, one where waltzing around in a silk negligee with perfect hair and makeup at the crack of dawn, while throwing together delicious food, is somehow totally plausible!

    I have a weakness for all the cookery programmes, though. Even Gillian McKeith. You know how she shows the offenders their weekly table of what she labels disgusting stodge? I usually find it pretty droolworthy! :p

    God, same here! It's nearly all the same yellow/golden brown colour but you look at the doughnuts and sausage rolls and pizza...
    (pauses to wipe drool from keyboard)
    All the fruit and veg stuff looks nice but it's like a force feeding mentality. I need to at least like the stuff I'm eating on a diet!
    Don't you waltz around in a negligee preparing your breakfast? ;o)

    I have to shamefully admit that I've watched every episode from Gillian McKeith on channel 4's 4OD service. All 3 series! The 'before' table is like food porn! I remember one particular episode where Gillian grabbed this luscious looking choc fudge cake and crumbled it up in her hands with that disgusted look on her face saying 'how on earth can you pollute your body with this junk?' And I felt like screaming aloud 'VERY VERY EASILY!!'

    *sigh*

    I should get myself a negligee, some heated rollers and tastefully suggestive red lipstick, and see if I can do a Nigella some morning. It'll make a change from the usual zombified state of ancient tatty bathrobe and slipper socks with holes in them! Not sure I'll be able to make my morning weetabix and hot milk look sexy, though...:p

    Food porn - I like that! It's so true! Guilty pleasures!

    Sexy Weetabix? Easy, just pout a lot and flutter your eyelashes! At least you'll start your day with a giggle!

    I always think Gillian McKeith makes 'normal'/junk food look gross, by the way they film it. She'll make a cake look horrific when really I want to eat it all! She must live on pulses and celery.

    Yeah, but look at her - she doesn't look happy! Or healthy. She always looks miserable and scrawny to me! Total food nazi in my opinion. Life's too short. I know we're all on here to lose weight, but you've got to have some enjoyment in life! Her programs almost always show someone screwing their nose up when they try her recipes! (I've got the Sheryl Crow song - All I Want To Do-lyrics in my head. Changed William to Gillian - it sort of fits!)
    I dont know. She doesn't seem to give the sort of encouragmement people need to lose weight. By people, I mean me!

    yeah I agree! She always looks unhappy and wants people to be as unhappy. I think there's a middle ground between eating too much bad stuff, and eating only lentils. Did you see her on the x-factor too? haha

    Oh she was bad, but she really thought she was good, and that everyone else should think she's fantastic too.

    Oh, to have that much self confidence! I've tried to find it but every site I can see has had it removed for 'terms of use violations'. Shame.
