British Dietetic Association taking the piss again literally, no change there then !

From the BDA diets they do not recommend in their Christmas message.

Top of the list drinking your own urine. 

"What's it all about? Urine Therapy, or urotherapy, includes the drinking of one's own urine for cosmetic or medical/wellbeing purposes. Some claim that the urea component of urine can have an anti-cancer effect.

BDA Verdict: Literally, don't take the proverbial! Emergencies, only as Urine Therapy has no scientific evidence that it adds anything beneficial to the body and its safety has not been established. As for any anti-cancer claims made in favour of Urine Therapy, this is simply not backed up by scientific studies."

A close runner up to don't drink your own waste was the paleo diet.

"What's it all about? The Paleo diet (also known as the Paleolithic Diet, the Caveman diet and the Stone Age Diet) is a diet where only foods presumed to be available to Neanderthals in the prehistoric era are consumed and all other foods, such as dairy products, grains, sugar, legumes, 'processed' oils, salt, and others like alcohol or coffee are excluded.

BDA Verdict: Jurassic fad! A diet with fewer processed foods, less sugar and salt is actually a good idea, but unless for medical reason, there is absolutely no need to cut any food group out of your diet. In fact, by cutting out dairy completely from the diet, without very careful substitution, you could be in danger of compromising your bone health because of a lack of calcium. An unbalanced, time consuming, socially isolating diet, which this could easily be, is a sure-fire way to develop nutrient deficiencies, which can compromise health and your relationship with food."

Check out more complete dross from BDA spokesperson and consultant dietitian, Sian Porter here.

Promoting a low carb lifestyle can be a tough job, but the hardest gig of all, is keeping a straight face, when a dietitian that makes the late Pavarotti look anorexic, tells me a low carb diet will be bad for my health. Sian Porter is wheeled out on a regular basis in the UK. If this bloated blowhard is following the dietary information spouted by the BDA, could there be a better example of why the obesity and often linked type two diabetes epidemics are bankrupting healthcare systems across the world. 

Check out the first link below Sian is also on the payroll of a few black ops outfits. Check out the link to the NHS where Sian is pushing carbs big time.

Dietitian Sian Porter says: "Carbohydrates are such a broad category and people need to know that not all carbs are the same and it is the type and quantity of carbohydrate in our diet that is important. While we should reduce the amount of sugar in our diet, we should base our meals on starchy carbs. There is strong evidence that fibre, found in wholegrain versions of starchy carbs for example, is good for our health.”

It’s as if these people do not know starchy carbs turn to sugar, clearly Sian consumes lots of sugar.

№3 fad after urine therapy is a sugar-free diet. What are they thinking? They are lucky not to have a comment section.

Hi Galina

I spotted that as well. Shows you how batty the BDA is. They could be making a huge difference to the over weight and diabetic people but they are only interested in self promotion of their members in my opinion.
