Weight change & associated health problems
In this section you can find out about the experience of weight change and associated health problems, by listening to people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 42 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as ideas why people are overweight, reasons for wanting to lose weight and the physical and emotional benefits of losing weight. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
