The definitive answers to health questions. Dr Saleyha Ahsan oversees a world-first experiment to see how we can burn more fat without doing more exercise.

It's a new year and another series of Trust Me, I'm a Doctor, ready to help you shake off the festive excesses. In this special New Year programme, Dr Saleyha Ahsan oversees a world-first experiment to see how we can burn more fat - without doing any more exercise.
