Lose Weight Like Me, presented by Dr Sara Kayat and Jordan Banjo, aired on Channel 4 last week. The show’s inspirational new format teams up two people who are looking to make a change to their lifestyle, with four ‘health heroes’ – people who have already lost up to 200lbs on safe and sustainable weight loss and exercise plans.
The two contestants choose their mentor and follow their tried and tested weight loss plans, approved by a leading dietician, before sharing their eight-week results with the audience. Sara’s extensive experience as an NHS GP helps the contributors to understand how particular plans may be right for them, and to help them succeed at becoming healthier.
Jamie, 35, paired with DJ Bonnie, who had undergone a personal transformation through a paleo diet and a strict exercise regime. And Kathleen, 52, opted for Umar, who conquered obesity through macronutrients and intense gym work. They were both thrilled with their end results, Jamie having lost 2.5 stone and Kathleen having lost 1.5 stone.
You can watch Lose Weight Like Me from 19th January here.
