BBC. The Truth About Healthy Eating.

with 2 comments

shopping whole foodsFor all you food fad fashionistas, vegans and vegetablists, with your gluten-free, organic, quinoa, tofu, dairy-free and right-on, overpriced naaaturaaal, whole and holy foods, this is the day you got found out!

Only the BBC could do a great programme like this which exposes, gently but unmercifully, the giant confidence trick that is the health food, supplement and superfood business.

It’s all a load of codswallop. You’re being cheated into spending tens of pounds on rip-off products when you can eat healthily for pennies.

Watch it and weep for those have been taken in by the goji berries and coconut oil scam.  A pack of butter and an apple is a far better buy.

Available on the BBC iPlayer here.

  1. Pete my friend, I’m gluten intolerant so have to avoid wheat, I’m also vegan but do not buy expensive foods from supermarkets, vegan is the cheapest way if you know how to cook, I’ve haven’t felt this good since when I was in my early 20s! even the bbc can “miss the point”.

  2. Do you not think that the comparative measures were very arbitrary? I normally like programmes like this, but thought this was pretty poor from the BBC, it completely failed to give a full picture and much of their advice seemed very misleading. I read the reponse from BANT which seems to sum it up!
