Shahzad Ahmed was overweight, hypertensive, and diabetic, and realized he needed to turn his life around if he wanted to see his daughter grow up. As obesity and diabetes continue to rise, we focus in on the part of the world where it has reached epidemic levels - the Middle East. The luxurious lifestyle and booming wealth of the Gulf region have led to a sedentary lifestyle and an overabundance of food. Journey to the Middle East and see what extremes people like Shahzad are going to in order to change their lifestyles and give them a chance at a healthy diet. Join us as we learn valuable lessons we can all use in the fight against obesity and diabetes.
