Body Hits - S01E02 - Body Beautiful (2003) [TVRip (XviD)]
Produced by BBC3
Dr John Marsden takes an entertaining look at the troubles we put our body through, and how it
deals with them. This was one of the first programmes created for BBC3 when it launched in the UK,
and has that "BBC3" feel of being fresh and young. In the episode about alcohol, the dear doctor
imbibes a little himself to make the point. Potentially an entertaining and educational show for
teenagers, and found itself distributed to the US and Australia. A lot of the programme guides show
the US airing dates of 2004, but BBC3 had it in 2003!
Unfortunately, I haven't got all of the episodes, but I'll upload what I've got, and add the liks to the others
once I have them.
This episode looks at the issue of body image and how it affects most of us in some way or another. In today’s
society even healthy living is taken to excess. Fuelled by the admiration heaped on minuscule pop stars and
supermodels and super fit athletes and actors, in the Western world slim equals beautiful. 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.
Overweight taxi driver Andy, tries out a high protein meal plan in order to kick-start his diet. To his fitness instructor
wife’s bemusement, he fries up bacon and eggs for breakfast whilst she tucks into a bowl of muesli. After two
weeks, both are surprised by the results. Dr 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.
Using software developed at the University of Aberdeen, compulsive dieter Helen finds out how realistic her
perception of her body size is. She’s surprised to discover that in terms of body shape, she estimates herself
to be a stone heavier than she actually is. To ex-bulimic Phil, working out is one of the most important things
in his life. Although exercise addiction like his is rare, Dr Marsden explains how the endorphins released whilst
training are probably responsible. But, as Phil now depends on this chemical rush, when he misses a gym session
he feels agitated, gets sweaty palms and can’t focus on anything until he’s had his next "fix". Every day he
spends at the gym is another day that he doesn’t resort to throwing up as an alternative weight loss plan.
