Body BeautifulUnknown - 2012
This episode looks at the issue of body image and how it affects most of us in one way or another. Today even healthy living is taken to excess. Body image has become such an obsession that people follow dangerous diets, age their joints and muscles through obsessive exercise, and spend much of their lives worrying about not being the right shape or size. Dr. John Marsden explains how a high-protein diet can be used for a limited time, if followed up by a more traditional healthy diet, as a good way to achieve weight loss. Although exercise addiction is rare, Dr. Marsden explains how the endorphins released while training are probably responsible for this addiction.
