The Biggest Loser

You’re told you need to make a huge change in your life. That if you don’t make that change, this weight will take its toll on your health. It will kill you.

Then you go home to your healthily ever after. Or do you?

Professor Alexander Tan, consultant endocrinologist, explains why.
