Losing It

This sequel to a popular FRONTIERS episode, "Fat and Happy?," tackles the basic problem that confronts those who are overweight - how to lose weight and keep it off over the long term. The program also looks at research that attempts to get to the bottom of the body's complex weight-regulation system, and to explain, among other things, why dieting is so difficult.
