What’s it like working with patients and giving controversial low-carb advice in front of a TV audience?
In this interview Dr. Rangan Chatterjee talks about what it is like being a star on BBC’s “Doctor in the House” and helping patients with revolutionary diet and lifestyle changes with massive positive effects.

Very good interview. I enjoyed the whole session and learnt a lot. No more calorie counting. Thank you.
I like his approach . Focused, very clear and I took it that he meant us to eat 5 portions of non starchy vegetables a day not each meal. Great to hear another British doctor promote low carb. My GP was indifferent when I saw him and still pushing meds as the answer.
