I’ve written before about my yo-yoing waistline, and my coping techniques (in a nutshell: cutting carbs and processed food, and not fretting about portion size or exercise), but I’d never really looked into the science of weightloss. Until now.
In a new Audible Original six-part series ‘Tip The Scales’, I team up with Dr Giles Yeo (a geneticist from Cambridge University) to investigate fad diets, healthy eating, and the influence of our genes on dietary ‘choices’. I met truckloads of brilliant wellness and nutrition experts along the way, including Jack Monroe, Professor Sadaf Farooqi, and Dr David Katz.
It’s an entertaining, skeptical show about the world of weight-loss - and also my first crack at (co)hosting an American-style, semi-scripted documentary series, complete with music and archive clips.
Basically, if you’re a bit fat, and you enjoy my work, then you’ll probably like it! You can hear a free sample below.
The show is available exclusively on Audible here. It’s free to Audible members, or available to buy for £11.37.
