Cooking shows not helping weight

WITH doctors and the media putting so much emphasis on Australians losing weight, and the failure of most of us to do so, despite so many so-called experts claiming to have the answer to our problem, perhaps the answer lies in the ability to block out the thought of food?

But how can this be done, when every time we turn on the TV set we get yet another cooking program staring back at us?
