How To Lose Weight Healthily - Without Crash Dieting

Thursday, 2 January

Weight loss will likely be on the minds of many at this time of year, despite it becoming an increasingly controversial topic within the wellness world. But if you do want to lose weight to improve your health, what does smart, sustainable weight loss look like? What tactics do you need to use in order to achieve it? And what approaches should you steer well clear of? Senior Editor Roisín Dervish-O’Kane discusses all this and more with NHS GP Dr Zoe Williams (who you’ll recognise from TV shows including Trust Me I’m a Doctor and This Morning) and Renee McGregor, a sports dietician specialising in eating disorders.
