Summary
This episode examines the way in which the traditional weight-loss advice of dieting and exercising works for only five percent of the millions of us who are fighting flab. An operation that reduces the size of the stomach is a solution, but most overweight people would much prefer to take drugs to help them become thin. However, such medicines can cause dangerous - even fatal - side effects. Thus, a food of the future containing natural ingredients that can help us feel satiated and prevent us from overeating is being cooked up.
