Truth About

Obesity

Season 1, Episode 1 of 2

We all think obesity is caused by eating too much and exercising too little. But the latest research is turning those assumptions on their head. This eye-opening film looks at groundbreaking new treatments: from faecal transplants to the hunger-hormone injection that might eliminate obesity forever. And a time-travelling experiment reveals how we’re fatter than we were in the ‘70s – despite eating fewer calories and doing the same amount of exercise. Learn the real reasons we get fat, how it affects our bodies, and how you can stop it happening to you
