    Didn't see the programme (clashed with South Wind Blows on the wireless) but judging by the photo, ol' PBH with his double chin could lose a few pounds.

    Agreed; I can't take P. Boucher-Hayes seriously in light of his earlier 'investigations.' His blotted copy-book doesn't appear to have hindered his career to any great degree - he's Head of RTÉ Radio's Investigative Unit.

    Solution:
    Avoid processed foods as much as you can. If everyone did this, there'd be an implosion in the food industry akin to or even worse than the banking crisis but we'd all be far healthier as a result.

    I think turning vegetarian is an option people should seriously consider. I've been a veggie half my life now and I'm now pretty much the same weight as I was in my early 20s before I turned.

    Around me I see former colleagues and schoolmates pile on the kilos even while they spend hundreds of euros per year on gym fees.

    Oh, yeah....gyms. Another big money spinner for capitalism. You pay them so you can do exercises you can actually do in your own home.
    One thing i can never understand, running machines in gyms. I mean WTF. Actually running machines in general. Just go outside and run ffs.

    You don't sound high-minded, what you are saying makes perfect sense. The difference in taste and nutrition once you cook everything from scratch using fresh produce, meat and fish is an order of magnitude greater than the pre-processed shyte you get in supermarkets. How some of that stuff qualifies as "food" is beyond me (eg. cheese strings, fizzy drinks, etc).

    I find it very tempting to cook a lot of food in one session and spread it over the week.

    Why anybody would take any notice of propaganda from RTE and PBH is beyond me. Why doesn't he do a program about the chronic coke habit inside RTE ?

    So they're wrong about fatty foods being unhealthy? Thanks for that.
