Britain is already the most obese country in Western Europe, and if current trends continue, more than 50% of us will be overweight by 2050. There’s no doubt that our poor diet and lack of exercise is slowly killing us... as well as crippling the NHS. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall challenges some of the biggest food companies and restaurant chains to be more honest about what they are selling and asks the Government what they’re doing to tackle this crisis. He also discovers if it is possible to change the eating habits of a whole city by challenging the people of Newcastle to lose 100,000lbs in a year.
