- Program Description
BODYWATCH looks at new findings that dramatically alter current attitudes about calorie counting. A calorie is not just a calorie, it turns out. At issue is the fact that Americans eat too much fat -- four times what they need. The program exposes hidden sources of fat in food, explains the difference between types of fat and suggests a low-fat diet that tastes as good as it feels.
