Ten science-based approaches to losing weight without starving are put to the test as volunteers take part in experiments to reveal the relationship between plate size and food consumption, why soup is the most filling of meals, how low-fat dairy products help the body eliminate fat, the long-term fat-burning potential of exercise, the counterintuitive fact that meal-skipping really doesn't facilitate weight loss, and more. Grades 6 and up. English with English subtitles. 51 minutes. BBC. ©2009.
