The show will follow a group of dieters who want to achieve lasting weight loss with Tom’s take on low calorie recipes.
In ‘Tom Kerridge: Lose Weight For Good’, 13 volunteers will test his recipes in conjunction with NHS-approved weight loss advice.
Tom himself has famously lost 12 stone following a ‘no carb’ regime, and is now turning his attention to low-calorie cooking to help others.
Tom said: “It’s impossible to lose weight and keep the weight off for good if you don’t enjoy what you’re eating.
“The NHS offers really sound advice about how to lose weight, so I’ve taken this as the starting point and challenged myself as a chef to come up with really appealing lower calorie dishes people will want to eat every day.
“The cooking techniques mean there’s no compromise on flavour and you’re promised a generous plate of food!
“I’m hoping this will help more people to lose weight and still love what they eat. They’ve all got strong reasons why they want or need to lose weight. So they’ve agreed to cut down their calorie intake, and in return I’m providing them with recipes they can make and enjoy at home.”
‘Tom Kerridge: Lose Weight For Good’ is scheduled for broadcast in early 2018 on BBC Two.
