Someone just posted this on another forum I frequent, and it totally made me rage (just for a moment, until I ranted at my boyfriend, and then my regular zen-like state reappeared) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I avoid ranting too much about stuff that is ESPECIALLY LUDICROUS, but geez, this really pushed my buttons <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/furious.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":furious:"><br><br>
I can see SO MUCH wrong with this that I don't even know where to start, so I'm not even going to try. Please feel free to join me in my annoyance. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/whack.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":whack:"><br><br><br><a href="http://www.tvthrong.co.uk/im-celebrityget-me-out-here/photo-gillian-mckeith-vs-nigella-lawson" target="_blank">http://www.tvthrong.co.uk/im-celebri...nigella-lawson</a><br><br>
Here is what the link goes to - some imbeciles <b>"proof"</b> that eating meat and butter and desserts is better than an organic, plant based diet.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://tvthrong.co.uk/files/u1670/nigellagillian.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Nigella still looks that good?<br><br>
I remember her being hot when I was 13-14, but even now......

I'm not sure! I had never even heard of her... I just started googling her after I saw this link <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br>
From what I see she's vegan, but I didn't really look too hard.

Wow, that woman does look older than 51, but it might very well be that they chose an image of her where she's wearing no make-up, on a reality TV show where they have "celebrities" do unpleasant things in the jungle, and apparently having recently had a traumatic experience locked in a box with rats....<a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1330014/Im-A-Celebrity-2010-Gillian-McKeith-public-target-dramatic-jungle-antics.html" target="_blank">http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...le-antics.html</a><br><br>
If they're going to use purely anecdotal, photographic evidence, they should at least choose two photos that are equivalent. The omnivorous chef looks like she's arriving at some fancy event, is well-lit, and made-up. Maybe any of these photos would do: <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1021669/Food-guru-Gillian-McKeith-reveals-agony-deformed-back.html" target="_blank">http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/ar...rmed-back.html</a><br><br>
That said, I had never heard of either of them, and my brief research into Gillian McKeith shows that she might very well be an unlikeable, silly person, vegetarian or not.

Gillian McKeith does not promote a vegetarian diet at all. I have her book at it has about 10 meat recipes in it. (btw I do like her book, it has some great smoothies and soups and meals and desserts)<br><br>
Also, Nigella promotes a lot of high fat, high sugar eating, hardly healthy. the woman is gorgeous though, amazing genes for ageing. She has likely had stuff done too.<br><br>
I love Nigella, she should totally go veg, then I would worship her.

Also, Gillian is red haired and I believe she did a lot of sun bathing when she was young, she lived in Spain for a while and I think she ended up with a lot of sun damage. Red haired people need to be very careful with sun. Nigella is at an advantage there as she is Jewish and will have more sun protection in her skin as Jewish people are of mediterranean/middle eastern descent.

Some Jews have olive skin. Some not so much. I'm of primarily Jewish ancestry, and quite fair skinned and easily burned.

The pictures of Gillian Mckeith was when she was on a reality show 'I'm a celebrity get me out of here' where they lived in a jungle (no makeup no hairdryers).<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/d/d8/d8bf12d5_vbattach17247.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/d/d8/525x525px-LL-d8bf12d5_vbattach17247.jpeg" style="width:466px;height:310px;"></a><br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/6/65/65d64d58_vbattach17248.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/6/65/525x525px-LL-65d64d58_vbattach17248.jpeg" style="width:350px;height:418px;"></a><br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/1/19/19e9065c_vbattach17249.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/1/19/525x525px-LL-19e9065c_vbattach17249.jpeg" style="width:351px;height:525px;"></a>

I actually find Paula Deen way more tolerable (and entertaining) than Nigella Lawson.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lipsrsealed2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sealed:">

I used to watch both shows in Qatar (we received all the BBC channels). Gellian advocated fish eating A LOT, I remember that vividly. Also, I wouldn't put it past either of them to have had a little doctor assisted snippy action.

Gillian McKeith is a bad person who is full of **** (also obsessed with ****). Nigella Lawson is beautiful and lovely and very clever and cool even if she eats things I don't think people should eat. Gillian Mckeith can eat **** for all I care.

I find both of them a bit annoying.

Poop. She likes to look at poop for signs of bad nutrition.

The thing with Nigella's cooking, I think, is because her mother was anorexic. If my mother had gone through something like that I know I'd throw myself into cooking good food to be enjoyed to it's fullest, and more often than not, with company. One of her recipes always sticks in my head; garlic butter grilled portabella mushroom in a bun with salad.<br>
What I remember of Gillian is a woman passing out in the jungle tv show. We need fat on our bodies to survive possible times of limited food (you might say "but in western society, that's very unlikely" very unlikely, but possible in a number of situations).<br><br>
Nigella stays out of the sun, has anyone seen her full-body swimsuit (hood included)?
