In a brand new six-part series, Michelin-star chef Tom Kerridge recruits and mentors a group of struggling dieters to prove they can lose weight for good by following his simple but delicious low-calorie recipes.
Tom famously lost 12 stone through a combination of a strict diet and exercise, but is now turning his attention to low-calorie cooking to help others.
All local residents to Tom's restaurants, the group of 13 dieters must stick to daily calorie limits and follow recipes and cooking tips designed to help them over 12 weeks. Tom begins with comfort food, with the first recipes including apple and raisin muffins, a generous lasagne without pasta, southern-style chicken with potato salad and a creamy rice pudding.
Having lost a significant amount of weight himself, Tom knows exactly what trials, tribulations and temptations lay ahead for the group, and he will mentor them every step of the way. Helping them to take control of what they eat in the hope of turning their lives around, Tom will tap into their different motivations for losing weight and keep the group members focused on achieving their goals.
