Michael Mosley asks five volunteers to put their lives in his hands as he attempts to turn their health around in just 21 days. In the UK, one in three adults over the age of 50 have health issues related to lifestyle – including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and chronic inflammation. Initial testing on the five volunteers reveals that they are all possibly at risk from at least one of these debilitating conditions. In this episode, it’s week two of the three-week regime and Michael gathers the five together for a rooftop high-intensity training session with Dr Folusha Oluwajana. Also, a self-described ‘junk food vegan’ makes changes. And the group go cold-water swimming at eight degrees centigrade.
