One of the UK’s biggest and busiest obesity units has opened its doors to allow an exclusive insight into their battle with the bulge. Sunderland Royal Hospital is at the heart of one of the fattest places in the country and the Weight Loss Ward is like a conveyor belt with thousands of patients turning to the knife to beat their obesity. But before they go under the knife they need to come to terms with why they’re overeating.

  1. Die Fresserei und das Fett ist ein Ausdruck von Langeweile, Interesselosigkeit, Faulheit und Gleichgültigkeit. Wundert mich nicht, wenn es in UK eine miese Politik gibt und bald aus dem ganzen Land ein Teheran-second in black wird!!!!

  2. I was astounded when the head of the weight loss unit said he could not prevent trolleys on the ward. Is this a hospital rule? A cultural thing? Whatever is the cause it is rediculous! If ya gotta have a trolley, how about 0 calorie drinks – that's it.

  3. Yoga is a recognised pressure buster, but it is also one of the simplest workouts for preventing cussed fats stores, mainly the ones that crop up after age forty. Yes, you could use yoga for weight loss. The motive: Studies show that yoga lowers degrees of pressure hormones and will increase insulin sensitivity—a signal on your body to burn food as gasoline rather than save it as fats. The following "yoga poses for weight reduction" will do simply that while toning up your palms, legs, butt, and abs.

  4. I 'm 51 yrs old, 5 ft 8in and at my heaviest I was 248lbs.I'm now180lbs.Weight loss for me started in the kitchen with the removal of sugary drinks and then over the next few months I removed nearly all processed foods from my diet.I then started walking 20 min then 40.min a day.Weight training started about the same time 3 times a week.This continued until my weight dropped below 200lb.Then I set a goal of running a half marathon,I trained for about 4 months and I completed it 1 week ago but it will never be finished.Mine is an on going struggle.Weight has always been and will continue to be a daily battle.Sometimes I lose a battle here and there but I don' t give up.I set a new goal and work slowly towards reaching it.I see people carrying so much weight and my heart breaks.Good luck to anyone starting this journey.It's not easy but just know you aren't alone I am battling just like you.Everyday.

  5. The goofball background music makes this unwatchable. It's totally inappropriate for the subject matter. What is with these British shows and their stupid, clownish music? You'd think this were some idiotic sitcom. These are real people about to undergo life changing surgery. For crying out loud, producers, Do better.

  6. These people cannot do it alone! I've noticed that with so many of them, their whole family is fat. If they were surrounded by slim people who know how to eat healthy, and not being offered crap from the hospital trolley, either, then they would lose weight naturally. If they'd had the support they needed early on in life, they would not be obese in the first place, and this program and all the diets and surgeries would not exist.
