THE TRUTH ABOUT EXERCISE By dr mosley
EAT FAST AND LIVE LONGER
Thank you, wiltldnrUSA. I believe these two BBC ‘Horizon’ TV programmes are fascinating, concise statements, particularly of the science and potential benefits of intermittent fasting (IF), and maybe also of bursts of high intensity exercise/training. They could bring revolutionary, long term health benefits, sorely needed throughout the overfed parts of the world. It is highly desirable for people interested in IF to have access to the original BBC TV broadcast. It’s a pity if tactical manoeuvres by forum contributors are required to keep the online links to these TV programmes readily accessible here.
I live in the UK. I am happy to pay an annual licence fee for my TV, to allow the BBC to broadcast without advertising or sponsorship. I missed the Eat, Fast and Live Longer programme when it was on during the summer holidays and Olympics in 2012. When I heard about the programme, months later, it was frustrating to have trouble finding it online. It had a public service remit, and was from a public service broadcaster that I help pay for, but was not fully available to me and to others, hidden because of red tape. I was delighted to find it eventually, on Vimeo.
Open availability remains a problem of contractual/legal/national boundaries. This site and Michael and MImi’s books are not part of the BBC. Whatever the contractual boundaries, etc, I am very grateful that Michael and the BBC have done so much to bring to a wider audience the work of the many (mainly US) scientists, making fascinating discoveries on the health effects of intermittent fasting etc.
The successful dissemination of good science is as vital as it is fickle, in a world that is shifting so fast, and has so many potential hazards because we are altering our environment at an exponentially increasing speed.

& even mayb copy pasting the video links
In UK we tend to have access online to BBC programmes for a week after they are broadcast. Two of my children live in Toronto, and can access BBC radio online there, but not TV.
I felt that for UK residents the BBC could have made an exception for Eat, Fast, Live Longer, to leave it available on their iplayer service, because of its health impact. They could still do so. It’s good to have the vimeo link to the programme. I don’t know its legal status.
Good luck with your fasting.

I live in the US and these videos really got me interested. My husband who is a diabetic wanted to try it and had great success with it. I have only just begun. After my first week I’m down 10 LBS. My starting weight was 316lbs.
