The Anti-Diet

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:19 pm on 10 July 2013

Palmerston North Boys High School teacher Justin Doolan loved the school canteen's burgers so much one was named after him. But a quiet word from a couple of students made him realise his endless craving for the 'Dooly' burger probably weren't a good thing and he approached a group of Massey University academics for help. He is now undertaking a 40-week 'Anti-Diet' which focuses on nutrition, exercise and attitudes about health, rather than weight. Dr Andrew Dickson is part of the team who created the Anti-Diet programme and he is working with Justin.
