Mighty Cast 37: The Diet Review

Episode 37

The Diet Review

This week on The Mighty Cast we look at why just about every diet out there fails in the long run.

  • Why aren’t most diets sustainable?
  • Which diet should you do?
  • What should the goals of a diet be?
  • What are the major problems with diets?

These are the main questions we start to answer and will follow up with practical solutions in future episodes.

If you currently have problems with hunger, staying sociable, low energy, money, compliance, results or sustainability…


You’re in for a treat :)

Lengthy, but good talk if you’ve got 30 minutes – you can skip the first few minutes of introductions (it’s just one part of a longer interview).

Bad Science: Quacks, Hacks, and Big Pharma Flacks by: Ben Goldacre publisher: Faber & Faber, published: 2010-10-12 ASIN: 0865479186 EAN: 9780865479180 sales rank: 21200 price: $8.38 (new), $5.11 (used)

Have you ever wondered how one day the media can assert that alcohol is bad for us and the next unashamedly run a story touting the benefits of daily alcohol consumption? Or how a drug that is pulled off the market for causing heart attacks ever got approved in the first place? How can average readers, who aren’t medical doctors or Ph.D.s in biochemistry, tell what they should be paying attention to and what’s, well, just more bullshit?


Ben Goldacre has made a point of exposing quack doctors and nutritionists, bogus credentialing programs, and biased scientific studies. He has also taken the media to task for its willingness to throw facts and proof out the window. But he’s not here just to tell you what’s wrong. Goldacre is here to teach you how to evaluate placebo effects, double-blind studies, and sample sizes, so that you can recognize bad science when you see it. You’re about to feel a whole lot better.
