A bit bloated after Christmas? Got the January blues? Kick off 2018 with a health boost from Jimmy Doherty, Kate Quilton, Matt Tebbutt and Dr Helen Lawal as they share surprising tips for staying healthy, and little-known ways of getting body and mind back on the rails through food. In Hollywood, Jimmy tries the latest trend that’s like something from a sci-fi movie: meal replacement drinks, apparently so packed with nutrients that they’re all you’d ever need to consume.
Kate investigates whether a weight-loss superpower is hidden in curry. Matt is on the trail of the hot new trend of microgreens, and finds that the little decorative leaves used to garnish plates can actually pack a real punch full of nutrients. And Helen heads to Tanzania where the Hadza tribe’s unique diet could reveal how to stay healthy and maybe even happy!
