According to a blog in the UK
"a very interesting hour-long program(me) called Edwardian Supersize Me 
<http://www.justhungry.com/edwardians-and-their-food-bbc-four> aired on 
BBC Four. Taking their cue from the hit documentary Supersize Me, Giles 
Coren <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren>, food critic for The 
Times, and writer/actress/comedienne Sue Perkins 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sue_Perkins> spent a week eating as the 
middle-class Edwardians did - meaning a lot. The pair are back, upgraded 
to BBC Two, in a new multipart series called The Supersizers Go…. The 
premise is the same as Edwardian Supersize Me - in each show Sue and 
Giles spend a week eating as people did in a certain historical era. The 
first episode aired last night, and the era was World War II."

It turns out that they did Elizabethan England and the Restoration too.
