Interesting TV Show Alert

Airing tonight at 10pm EST on CBC Newsworld's The Lens is a show entitled, "My Big Fat Diet".

My Big Fat Diet chronicles a fascinating experiment whereby a small Canadian community of Namgis First Nations give up their westernized diets for a year and return to their roots eating much more traditional first nation fares.

Basically the entire community goes on Atkins.

What happens next doesn't surprise me, but will sure make for great television and research.

The community loses weight - lots of it. They also get healthier.

The lens has a fabulous website with a tremendous amount of information on the show and if you'd like to watch a clip before tonight, simply click here.
