Season 01, Episode 02 “Quick and Easy”
Last time, Tom’s gang of calorie-counting dieters got off to a flying start. Between them they lost 73 pounds in the first fortnight. This time, Tom is turning the spotlight on the dieters in the group who say they are too busy, or too inexperienced, to cook healthy meals at home. Tom is convinced that his quick and easy recipes – along with his support and encouragement – will change that.His recipes include a family breakfast of Cajun scrambled eggs, a dieter’s ‘cheat pizza’, a pea and ham pasta that is on the table in under 15 minutes and a really simple lower-calorie French apple tart. The 13 dieters in his group are beginning to build a strong support network. At the heart of this is a social-messaging group they have set up to share tips and give each other advice. Tom is delighted by this as he thinks they are more likely to lose weight supporting each other, especially if this were to carry on after the experiment is over.
