What’s it like working with patients and giving controversial low-carb advice in front of a TV audience?

In this interview Dr. Rangan Chatterjee talks about what it is like being a star on BBC’s “Doctor in the House” and helping patients with revolutionary diet and lifestyle changes with massive positive effects.

He also talks about getting heavily criticized by the British Dietetic Association for giving “dangerous” advice, despite solid scientific support and the fantastic effects on his patients.

Very good interview. I enjoyed the whole session and learnt a lot. No more calorie counting. Thank you.
– Angela

I like his approach . Focused, very clear and I took it that he meant us to eat 5 portions of non starchy vegetables a day not each meal. Great to hear another British doctor promote low carb. My GP was indifferent when I saw him and still pushing meds as the answer.
– Gail

So great to see a British doctor on board, hopefully he will be one of those leading the low carb WOL and showing the way to all our GP’s in the UK.

Dr Chatterjee’s work was critisised by the BDA (The Association of UK Dietitians) and called ‘dangerous’. A look at BDA’s corporate members list reveals that it includes Big Food: amongst others Nestlé, Danone and General Mills. Now I see that BDA is right – LCHF is dangerous! It threatens the profits of their clients. Obviously people’s health and wellbeing comes distant second at BDA…
– Justyna

Hooray! A Brit finally speaking out and supporting LCHF. I wish he were my GP. Mine are still banging on about counting calories, basing meals on carbs etc etc etc.
– Helena

Very good interview. I enjoyed the whole session and learnt a lot. No more calorie counting. Thank you.
– Angela

Great & super-helpful.
Thank you.
– Rudy

I wish I had a GP like this. He clearly has the courage to persist in the face of the scaremongering from the medical establishment.
– David

I saw this BBC programme and have to say it totally changed my attitude to my T2D very positively. From being in denial, I felt I could take control. So that programme, and being recommended Dietdoctor.com (interestingly by my Diabetic Nurse on prompting of the surgery’s dietician!!) has radically changed my health and my sugar is now stable below 6.5.
More programmes like this please!!!! AND when is the dialogue with the dietician population going big time?!!!!
