Chef Tom Kerridge famously lost 12 stone by hitting the gym and cutting back on carbs and booze. Which makes him the go-to guy for BBC2’s entry in the Diet TV category – a busy genre in January. Except that here, he’s not touting his low-carb “dopamine diet”, but regular low-calorie recipes using mildly radical flavour changes and unexpected cooking techniques to camouflage the fact they’re healthy.
Whether or not the recipes appeal, some of those tricks might – like roasting beef mince before putting it into a lasagne or toasting rice in the oven before deploying in a rice pudding. I know – crazy, right?
The first episode focuses on comfort foods, including muffins made with banana instead of butter and sugar.
Chef Tom Kerridge recruits and mentors a group of struggling dieters, offering them advice on ways they can lose weight with long-term results. After losing over 12 stone himself through a combination of diet and exercise, Tom uses his own personal experiences to help the 13 dieters reduce their calorie intake, demonstrating how they can create their own simple, low-calorie dishes. Meeting the group for the first time, Tom lays out what they can expect from their weight-loss journey, and begins with tackling the issue of comfort eating, a problem that many of the group struggle with.
