Do you struggle with your weight and wonder which diet would give you the best results?

On What's The Right Diet For You? A Horizon Special, we profiled 75 people to understand why they had problems losing weight. Medical and nutritional experts tested their hormones, genes and attitudes towards food, categorising them into three groups: Constant Cravers, Feasters and Emotional Eaters. Our experts then gave each group a different diet to follow, using a scientific approach to weight loss.

This test will indicate whether you may be in one of the same groups. It is not a substitute for tests performed in the experiment but is a useful guide you can use at home.

My result:


Once you start eating you find it hard to stop. It takes more food for you to experience the same sense of fullness as most other people, so you are likely to eat more than your body actually needs.

Feasters may have low levels of the gut hormones that are released when you eat and tell your brain when you should stop eating.

By focusing on eating the right type of foods, you can work with the body’s natural appetite control system and avoid the need to count calories.

You may find that a diet high in protein coupled with the right kind of low glycaemic index carbohydrates will increase your sense of fullness and help keep your appetite under control, making it easier to diet.
