Check your local listing for times. A brief description from their
website is below. A longer press release can be found at
Americans spend $40 billion a year on books, products, and programs
designed to do one thing: help us lose weight. From Atkins to Ornish and
Weight Watchers to the Zone, today's dieters have a dizzying array of
weight loss programs from which to choose--yet the underlying principles of
these diets are often contradictory. Is low fat better than low carb? Is
Atkins the answer? And has the USDA Food Pyramid done more harm than good?
In "Diet Wars," FRONTLINE examines the great diet debate.
