UK pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned ITN Productions, the in-house production business of ITN, to make a new consumer health program that will examine the behaviors and eating patterns of people who appear to be naturally slim.

The Secret Lives of Slim People (w/t; 4 x 30 minutes) will look to answer the questions of what genetically thin people do differently than others and whether their dietary habits would work for the rest of us.

The series will be hosted by Supershoppers presenter Sabrina Grant, who will explore the latest science to help viewers understand their bodies as she searches for answers as to why some people remain slim while others put on weight.

The Secret Lives of Slim People follows the success of Channel 4′s one-off documentary The Truth about Slim People from ITN Productions.

The series was ordered by Channel 4′s commissioning editor Adam Vandermark.

“As with the documentary, the series will follow those frustrating people we all know who seem to effortlessly remain slim. People can either nominate themselves or their slim mate, and then we’ll unpick their every move and morsel to find out what determines their size,” said Vandermark in a statement. “It will be fun, surprising and full of revelatory popular science.”
