This new three-part series involves Dr Michael Mosley focusing closely on the health of five contributors who are seeking help.
All are overweight or obese and experiencing a range of health conditions, from poor diet, reduced fitness levels and lack of energy to failing gut health. The contributors are placed on a bespoke and comprehensive health and fitness programme that will help improve their bodies and minds in measurable ways. A range of key health markers cover medical, psychological and fitness assessments. The series aims to improve these markers over three weeks.
