Welcome To The World Of Weight Loss w/t (1 x 60′) – All over the country, in Britain’s churches and community halls, tens of thousands of people – mainly women – attend slimming clubs every week. Yet, despite the fact that more people than ever are on a diet, obesity rates are soaring.
So does dieting help? Critically acclaimed director Vanessa Engle (Walking With Dogs, Money, Women, Jews, Lefties) follows members from three different slimming clubs over a three-month period as they try to lose weight. With unprecedented access to a number of different slimming clubs, this warm-hearted film explores why we have such a complicated relationship with food and why so many of us struggle to stay in control of what we eat.
