After a successful first run, Channel 4 series ‘How to Lose Weight Well’ will return in 2017.
Channel 4 said: “With a massive 11 million of us – almost 1 in six – on some form of diet in a bid to slim down for an upcoming event, dieting is more popular than ever. But with over 100,000 diet books available online, which one is most likely to answer our weight loss prayers safely?
Over five 60-minute programmes, 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 most bizarre – diets on the market.
They will be all dieting for different events – weddings, parties and summer holidays – and working to different timeframes ranging from two weeks to four months. ‘How to Lose Weight Well’ 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 weight-loss techniques.
