Food Unwrapped: Diet Special

After all the festive over-indulgence, the Food Unwrapped team are on an urgent quest to get back in shape. In this one-hour special, Jimmy Doherty, Kate Quilton, Matt Tebbutt and guest presenter Kiran Jethwa scour the globe for the latest trends and scientific advances around weight loss. Should we believe recent headlines that eating more fat could make us thin? Kate meets an award-winning NHS doctor who has achieved amazing results by putting patients on a diet that's low in carbs and higher in fat than current NHS guidelines suggest. What about dairy? Should dieters be going for red, green or blue top milk? In the Netherlands, Jimmy meets a scientist whose research could turn our understanding of full fat milk on its head. At Pinewood Studios, Matt meets the man who whipped Hollywood star Hugh Jackman into shape for his part as Wolverine with the help of the '16-8 diet' - 16 hours of fasting followed by 8 hours eating - but will it do the trick for Matt?
