Lose a Stone For Christmas

Ruth Langsford investigates which diets work best if you want to lose weight fast. Under the supervision of Doctor Amir Khan, 12 overweight food addicts go on some of the most extreme diets out there. Can they drop one stone, in one month?

At home, Ruth candidly reveals the pressure she feels to keep her weight down. Amidst heroic attempts to squeeze into her favourite clothes, she confesses to the same dietary downfalls as the rest of us – whether it’s wine o’clock or her calorific hangover cure; her secret snack cupboard and the fat-laden foods she just cannot resist.

 Starting Thursday 7th November at 8pm on Channel 5.
