Following a study by the UK Medical Research Council into effective ways to reduce weight, over 300 women feel let down.
The MRC took 770 overweight women from Germany, Austria and the UK, sent half to their GP for help and the others were sent to Weight Watchers. After twelve months of the study those who attended Weight Watchers had significantly lost weight.
Helga who was sent to her GP said "we feel let down by the study and we intend to take action". Ingrid, who was also sent to her GP, has started her own protest and is going on a hunger strike.
This controversy follows the result of last years study where 680 people with blurred vision were tested. Half of those were sent to their GP and the remainder sent to SpecSavers.
The British Medical Association are now conducting their own study, they are sending half of the Medical Research Council to University and the remainder to their local Job Center.
