Fighting Fat

About the show

Fighting Fat follows five everyday Kiwis as they strive to lose weight and improve their quality of life.

The diets trialled are not supposed to be quick fixes and the show follows the fat fighters for a full five months to see what it really means to lose weight and get healthy.

During this period each fat fighter will follow their own unique weight loss plan in an effort to shed the extra kilos they're carrying and improve their health.

Fighting Fat will be there for the fat fighter's triumphs and downfalls in their battle with the bulge. The fearless five are helped along the way by a psychologist, nutritionist and an exercise expert, who will bust dieting myths and share facts about food and how our bodies work.

Fighting Fat starts Saturday 22nd January at 4pm on TVNZ Heartland.
