Save Money Lose Weight

Series overview

Save Money Lose Weight returns with a new six-part series testing the very latest new diets and health trends for 2020.

After the nation’s festive blowout on food, drink and money, this series, presented by journalist Sian Williams and Dr Ranj Singh aims to help people achieve their New Year’s resolutions pound by pound, so they can shift the extra weight in lb - without shelling out too much in £.

This year 29 million people will be going on a diet - and the team road-tests 12 of the latest to see which will top the show’s leaderboard on value for money and weight loss.

The programme will again put the hottest diets of the moment through its ultimate value for money road test. This time 12 dieters will be put through their paces and matched to a different popular diet based on lifestyle and eating habits.  

At the end of their 28-day trial the programme will reveal how much the dieters have lost and divide that into the total cost of their plan to reveal the pound-for-pound price for each diet. Then, in the series finale, all diets will be ranked on the programme’s Save Money leaderboard to find out which is the best at beating the bulge - without breaking the bank.

This is a Twofour production for ITV

Episode 2

In the second episode, two fresh diets are put through their paces in a 28-day value for money road test – the Eat What You Like And Lose Weight For Life cookbook and Noom, an app that has been trending worldwide.

The programme also looks at the latest new diet products to hit the supermarket shelves, to find out which are fleeting fancies and which are future foods worth splashing out on. Sian Williams puts a new super grain, pea milk and a vegetable sheeter to the test. Dr Ranj Singh investigates technology and gadgets that are designed to boost willpower when it comes to dieting - from a state of the art headset to fight food cravings to a low-tech fridge piggy gadget, which oinks when you open the fridge.
