I am 70 years and 5 months. Had bowel cancer – hemicolectomy and chemotherapy – in 2000. Also diverticular disease in remaining colon. Have difficulties with diet and weight gain. Have recently managed to lose 1 stone plus but would like to know how to convert flab to muscle mass and maintain it!

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for the comment. Unfortunately this is an old article – the study took place last year. However if the BBC gets in touch with a similar opportunity in future we will make sure to let you know.

Best wishes,
