"Each year, millions of people attempt to slim down-and fail. If super-diets and weight-loss fads don't work, what does? This program presents ten science-based approaches to losing weight without starving as volunteers put the theories to the test. Experiments reveal the relationship between plate size and food consumption, why soup is the most filling of meals, how low-fat dairy products actually help the body eliminate fat, the long-term fat-burning potential of exercise, the counterintuitive fact that meal-skipping really doesn't facilitate weight loss, and more. Informative and entertaining. A BBC Production. (51 minutes)."--Container.
