Aug 07, 2013, 02:28 PM

Couch potato or Olympic competitor, being fit holds a different meaning depending on who we are. Dr Yan Wong (@DrYanWong) hosts a lively panel of experts to discuss what it means to be fit. What really is a healthy lifestyle? Are we getting lazier? Who holds the responsibility for the health of the nation - food manufacturers, employers, the NHS? Or is it all down to us as individuals?

On the panel is Alice Wright, Senior Dietician at the Heart of England Foundation Trust (@heartofengland), and from the University of Birmingham (@unibirmingham) Professor Janice Thompson, Professor of Public Health Nutrition in Sport and Exercise Sciences, Dr Ami Banerjee (@amibanerjee) , Clinical Lecturer in Cardiovascular Medicine, and Dr Abd Tahrani from the School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine.
