Episode summary:

Under the care of The Food Hospital team, six obese women are monitored 24 hours a day as they live together in a house, battling hunger and emotions. These women, with Type 2 Diabetes, embark on extreme but potentially life-saving diets to try to put their illness into remission. Britain is in the grip of a Type 2 Diabetes epidemic. Already costing £1 million every hour, it threatens to bankrupt the NHS within a generation. With three of the women on low-calorie meals while the other s survive on just milkshake diets, there are tears and tantrums as they take on the challenge of a lifetime. But what happens over the course of eight weeks has huge implications both for the volunteers and for our understanding of this killer disease.
