Now I know that it’s highly unlikely to see the words “British Food” and “Gourmet Cuisine” in the same sentence. I work part-time at a health club in Northern California and surrounded by accordion abs, bulging biceps and taut tushes. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised by the rave review given by a co-worker of a book that I recently shared: “You are what you eat” authored by Dr. Gillian McKeith, a fellow Brit.
For those of you living outside of the UK, you may not know that Dr. McKeith is also a host of a BBC TV series of the same name. It’s of the reality genre where they focus on an individual who is typically overweight with a very dodgy diet, work with them over an eight-week period, culminating with dramatic weight loss and a much healthier lifestyle. She’s a pint-sized Scot with a British Bulldog personality. Here are a couple of fun clips. Please note he third one is an actual clip and you may find it a little disturbing.
