In a brand new six-part series, Michelin-star chef Tom Kerridge recruits and mentors a group of struggling dieters to prove they can lose weight for good by following his simple but delicious low-calorie recipes.
Tom famously lost 12 stone through a combination of a strict diet and exercise, but is now turning his attention to low-calorie cooking to help others.
All local residents to Tom's restaurants, the group of 13 dieters must stick to daily calorie limits and follow recipes and cooking tips designed to help them over 12 weeks. Tom begins with comfort food, with the first recipes including apple and raisin muffins, a generous lasagne without pasta, southern-style chicken with potato salad and a creamy rice pudding.
Having lost a significant amount of weight himself, Tom knows exactly what trials, tribulations and temptations lay ahead for the group, and he will mentor them every step of the way. Helping them to take control of what they eat in the hope of turning their lives around, Tom will tap into their different motivations for losing weight and keep the group members focused on achieving their goals.

Thomas Kerridge (born 27 July 1973 in Salisbury, Wiltshire) is an English Michelin-starred chef who has worked mainly in the United Kingdom. After initially appearing in several small television parts as a child actor, he decided to attend culinary school at the age of 18. He has since worked at a variety of British restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Rhodes in the Square and Adlards. With his wife Beth Cullen-Kerridge, he opened the pub, The Hand & Flowers in 2005 and within a year gained his first Michelin star. In the 2012 list, he won a second Michelin star, the first time a pub had done so. Tom then went on to open a second pub in Marlow, The Coach, which has also won a Michelin star. More recently Tom opened The Butcher’s Tap (butchers and pub under one roof) and has announced he will be opening his first London restaurant in 2018 at Corinthia Hotel London. As a chef he has appeared on the Great British Menu, MasterChef and Saturday Kitchen and more recently fronted his own series How to Lose Weight For Good and Top of the Shop, both for BBC. Kerridge currently presents Food and Drink (2015–present) and presented Bake Off: Crème de la Crème (2016), both for BBC Two.

Kerridge does not cook often when at home and claims that his oven is the least-used appliance in his house. He is a season-ticket holder of Marlow F.C. Kerridge is married to sculptor, Beth Cullen-Kerridge. He told author Paul Stenning: “My relationship with Beth is fantastic but in our first year living and working together she left me three times! It wasn’t what she was used to doing and for every penny you both own to be invested in the business, and for that to be virtually all you are doing with your time is hard. We had everything in our life in the one room and it was all above the place we were working, where I was putting in a 90 hour a week shift. It becomes a huge pressure on your relationship but it also cements it and makes it very strong. We’ve been through a lot together.”
