Documentary following newsreader Jamie Owen as he embarks on a diet that goes directly against the government's healthy eating advice.
Newsreader Jamie Owen is going on a diet that goes directly against government healthy eating advice, and common sense. For the past 30 years we have been told the key to a healthy lifestyle is cutting out fat. However, as a nation we have got bigger, Jamie included.
