The Diet Testers, SBS, Mon­day at 8.30pm

BRI­TAIN’S Dr Xand van Tulleken (pic­tured) and di­eti­cian Hala El-Shafie ask mem­bers of the pub­lic to road test the most hyped up and writ­ten about di­ets on the mar­ket to­day.

They di­vide the di­eters into three time frames: crash­ers on short-term di­ets, shape shifters on six-week pro­grammes, and life chang­ers on four-month di­et­ing plans.

Each group has an im­por­tant event they’re work­ing to­wards with their weight-loss goals, whether it be a univer­sity re­union or a busi­ness launch.

Cafe cook Sta­cie Ste­wart helps the vol­un­teers turn their di­ets into de­li­cious dishes, while Dr Xand in­ves­ti­gates how willpower af­fects di­et­ing and how we can train our brains to make health­ier food choices.
