Hugh's Fat Fight
Hugh's War on Obesity
Episode 2  |  SBS  |  September 24, 2018

Hugh is surprised to learn bottles of fruit juice and smoothies can contain as much sugar as a can of fizzy pop. He is also confused that the labels on the bottles seem to suggest that anything up to 330ml is a single portion size, when, in fact, the government recommends not drinking any more than 150ml of juice or smoothie a day. Hugh also turns the spotlight on our most popular high street restaurant chains, because children are eating out twice as much as they did in the 1970s. He challenges the restaurants to reduce the amount of sugar in their puddings, to put calorie information on their children's menus, and to stop selling bottomless fizzy drinks. Meanwhile, up in Newcastle, it is six months since Hugh launched his attempt to change the eating habits of a whole city. It has gotten off to a slow start, but after staging a big exercise event on High Street, and with Ross Noble's help on social media, it soon starts to take off.
