10 Things You Need to Know About Losing Weight
Wed 27 May 2009 20:00 BBC One
Every year millions of people in Britain try to lose weight, and most fail. We are
constantly bombarded with advice about dieting and the latest slimming fads. But what
really works? In this programme, medical journalist Michael Mosley investigates the
latest scientific breakthroughs in slimming, uncovering ten of the simplest ways you can
shed those pounds. From the slimming secrets of soup to our brain's response after
skipping meals, what he discovers may completely change the way you think about diets,
health and losing weight.
Michael does not look like he is at all overweight, but while making this film he
discovered that he, like millions of others, has internal body fat around his kidneys
and liver that he really needs to lose. So he tries out the scientific tips himself, and
by the end of the film he succeeds in losing the weight he wants.
Plus, musician Alex James, who is a passionate cheese maker, tries out an intriguing
scientific discovery - that low-fat dairy products can help you excrete more fat from
all your food.
Radio presenter Amy Lame learns how just a few small changes in her daily routine can
help burn significantly more calories, which is handy for those who hate exercise and
And actress Debbie Chazen, who eats healthy foods, has her metabolism checked and keeps
a food diary - with some surprising results.
We discover the scientific reasons why soup keeps you feeling fuller for longer than
solid food: it's all to do with the particular way the stomach shrinks and expands, and
we'll prove it using ultrasound scans of Territorial Army recruits.
Full of practical tips and scientific insights, we discover how anyone can lose weight
