All over the country, in Britain’s churches and community halls, tens of thousands of people – mainly women – attend slimming clubs every week. Yet, despite the fact that more people than ever are on a diet, obesity rates are soaring.
So does dieting help? Critically acclaimed director Vanessa Engle follows members from three different slimming clubs over a three-month period as they try to lose weight.
With unprecedented access to a number of different slimming clubs, this warm-hearted film explores why we have such a complicated relationship with food and why so many of us struggle to stay in control of what we eat.
Welcome To The World Of Weight Loss, an hour long documentary, will air later this year on BBC Two.
