Lose Weight For Love’ follows couples who are locked in a cycle of over-eating that threatens not only their health, but their relationship. They are one another’s own worst enemy – encouraging each other to over eat – and Tanya Byron believes it is only by separating and having therapy that they can address their under-lying individual issues, change for good, and ultimately be happier again with one another.
In this first episode, Becky and her partner Phil are locked in a cycle of over-consumption that now threatens their relationship.

Clinical psychologist, Professor Tanya Byron and her team separate them for ten weeks in a final bid to overhaul their habits.
