The would be dieters are followed through an intensive 5-day analysis at a residential diet lab at Liverpool Hope University. Whilst there they have to undergo a series of experiments run by the obesity scientists to look at whether their eating behaviour matches biological and psychological test results.
The dieters leave the lab and take their diets home where they face the challenge of sticking to their weight loss plans with all the stresses and temptations of their every day lives.
The show discovers how personalised dieting can work for the volunteers in the long term.

The show comes from the South Pole to tell the inside story of one of the greatest scientific quests of our time. In March 2014, there was a discovery that made headlines around the world, with evidence from the Big Bang itself.
