WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF WEIGHT LOSS
All over the country, in Britain’s churches and community halls, tens of thousands of people - mainly women - attend slimming clubs every week. Obesity rates are soaring - despite the fact that more people than ever are on a diet. This documentary follows members from three different slimming clubs over a three-month period as they try to lose weight. With unprecedented access to a Weight Watchers group, a Slimming World group and a Rosemary Conley group, this humorous and 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. The film features revealing contributions from two sisters who have lost 18 stone between them, a 48 year old woman who wants to lose a stone in order to fit back into her designer clothes, a mother and daughter originally from Ghana who put on weight eating too much African food, a divorced man who lives with his parents, three young students who have been slimming since they were in primary school and a woman with Body Dysmorphic Disorder, who attends a slimming club three times a week.
