Documentary taking a revealing look at the modern-day difficulties of obesity and the challenges it poses to society. Obesity in Scotland has become a major health issue, with 65 per cent of the population overweight or obese. However, in the Western Isles this number is even higher, with 74 per cent of the population affected. Trusadh examines why obesity levels are now so high and some of the health risks that go with it. For some, being overweight has been an issue since childhood, while for others it is an issue that has developed later in life. The programme meets a number of people who have struggled, or are struggling, with their weight, and explores the different ways that people are trying to lose weight - from diets, to lifestyle changes, and even surgery.
