Stacey Dooley: Gypsy Kids in Crisis
Caught between anti-gypsy hostility, demands of child protection services, and growing up in struggling families, Stacey explores if there’s any hope for Hungary’s Roma gypsy kids in care.
This experiment follows 37 year old Yemi (32 inch waist) and 41 year old Anne Marie (dress size 8) who appear to eat what they like and have no set exercise routines, yet they never put on weight. Over a course of 5 days covert cameras follow them everywhere – at work, home and play. They are the envy of their friends. Is there something in their behaviour that’s determining their size?
Experts unpick every element of their lifestyle – from what they eat, how much they fidget to the amount of sleep they get.
At a time when one in four people in Britain are obese, and billions of pounds are spent on fad diets, this fascinating documentary uncovers the simple secrets to being slim.
