Eat, Fast, Live Longer

Another good Horizon Program I saw last night on the iPlayer from Dr Michael Moseley, about eating, or not eating as it were.

Lots to think about (and digest!) about research going on in the States mainly, into fasting to improve CV risk profiles. Lots of convincing evidence from experts and personal stories, including Harmander Singh, the 101 year old Marathon runner who regularly fasts and eats child sized portions of food.

Eat Fast and Live Longer

Further support that my time would be better discussing lifestyle issues with patients instead of dishing out pills. I'm not sure how telling people to fast/how to do it will go down in Wincobank, but I'm gong to give it a go!
