Fat v Carbs with Jamie Owen BBC Documentary 2016

Newsreader Jamie Owen is going on a diet that goes directly against government healthy eating advice – and common sense. For the past 30 years we’ve been told the key to a healthy lifestyle is cutting out fat. However, as a nation we’ve got bigger – Jamie included. A controversial new report says the current government advice is making us bigger, and that the food industry is telling us what to eat. The report says that it isn’t butter, milk and other fat that is to blame – the problem lies elsewhere. Join Jamie as he investigates these weighty issues and makes himself a guinea pig for a diet that aims to make us rethink the way we try to control out waistline.
