Obese UK

Image 1 / 10

Inspiring new series ‘Obese UK' accompanies a diverse group of people; from a young mum to a taxi driver, all of whom have one goal - to shed excess weight before it kills them. Filmed over a year, experience the highs and the lows of each person's journey as they struggle to follow a strict weight loss program of diet and exercise. Their transformation will be under the guidance of a super motivator and weight loss expert and their progress closely monitored by healthcare professionals. Beyond the obvious lifestyle choices that explain how each individual became obese, peel back the emotional layers to discover why: for some food is an addiction, others an emotional crutch and for some their fat is both a physical and emotional barrier to trauma. Follow their dramatic physical transformations and explore their inspirational stories of compassion, love, sadness, humour, and determination to go the distance and change their lives.
