In fact, I don’t care what kind of squabbles McKeith wants to engage in over the technicalities of whether a non-accredited correspondence-course PhD from the US entitles you, by the strictest letter of the law, to call yourself “doctor”: No trivia or quizzes yet.

Few people know or remember that Gillian McKeith had a television show, as I recall, also called “You Are What You Eat”, which I sporadically watched while it lasted due to the entertainment factor.

Dear Gillian, My husband and I watch your show on BBCAmerica all the time and enjoy seeing how well you transform overweight people in eating and exercising properly.

I actually don’t find this bit very funny. McKeith goes after people, and nastily. But there are some interesting things in it. I’m not a fan of her cookbooks. Longer review to come! Wild Blue-Green Algae is also disputed. This is one of the best books on nutrition I have read in a long time. The antioxidant story is one of the most ubiquitous health claims of the nutritionists.
