About the Show

Calories are the language of many diets and healthy eating plans. But the numbers you see on the packets aren’t what they seem. From the farm to the food factory, Dr Chris Van Tulleken goes in search of the truth about calories, challenging everything we thought we knew. This film demonstrates why calculating the exact number of calories in supermarket foods is all but impossible and reveals how doing housework can burn off calories more effectively than an intense gym workout.
