    I watched a programme called “How to Give up Sugar” broadcast on Channel 5 and I was left wondering “Did they answer that question?” I don’t believe they did.
    I suspect most people who watched this (like me) were hoping for answers to the question “how to give up sugar” – what was shown was how to become addicted to sugar – this is not helpful in any way – the whole programme came across as just the Amir Khan show and was almost completely irrelevant
    At one point one of the doctors looking a Amir Khan’s blood test results said the tests were deceptive – what sort of message does this convey about the validity of blood tests?
    In my opinion, the most sensible participant in this programme was the psychiatric consultant Dr Hisham Ziauddeen who felt what was being termed a sugar addiction was more a habitual trait of eating the same things on a regular basis
    Most of the first half of the programme I found to be superfluous bordering on gross, what followed did not change my opinion
    Just eating a load of sugar for a month does not represent a true life situation. Sugar alone is not the full story, the combination of sugars and carbohydrates in our food are the area that should be explored and discussed because carbohydrates convert to sugars as they ore ingested.

    There’s an hour of my life I won’t get back. Whole program was about the GP eating MORE sugar! Where were the tips and foods we needed to GIVE UP sugar. Totally misleading and a complete waste of money making the program. VERY dissapointing
