After a hugely successful first run, Channel 4 series ‘How to Lose Weight Well’ will return for a five-part run in 2017.
With 11 million Brits – almost 1 in 6 – on some form of diet in a bid to slim down for an upcoming event, dieting is more popular than ever, with over 100,000 diet books available online.
In ‘How to Lose Weight Well’ Dr Xand Van Tulleken, café chef Stacie Stewart and dietician Hala El-Shafie will be on hand as six dieters road test some of the most popular, and some of the most bizarre, diets on the market.
The participants are all dieting for different events – weddings, parties and summer holidays – and working to different timeframes ranging from two weeks to four months. The series will chart every triumph – and tantrum – along the way.
Dr Xand will also put his body on the line in the name of science, trying out some of the latest weight loss gadgets and meeting some of the medics behind these weight-loss techniques.
