In this the 7th series of 'How Does that Make You Feel?' Martha's clients have made few changes to their circumstances.

Having completed his rehabilitation course, following accusations of sexism and cruelty to his employees, Tony has returned to Martha's sessions a new man - or so he thinks. He has even launched a women only menu in his restaurant to cater for the female obsession with calories - with special attention and advice to be given to ladies whom he considers overweight. He is mystified as to why this considerate gesture is not met with the acclaim he feels it deserves.
