Show Info -
The hit series returns for season three as transformational specialist Chris Powell, author of the New York Times bestseller, Choose to Lose, documents the amazing makeover of 15 courageous, “super obese” people who, in an unprecedented 365 days, set out to safely lose half of their body weight, ultimately revealing an amazing metamorphosis. In each of the 13 stand-alone, two-hour episodes, the participants undergo a transformation not only of their bodies, but of who they are as individuals. By assuring they have the proper nourishment and exercise movement, Powell provides a fresh perspective to individuals whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight. He guides each of the participants through their transformation process by moving into their homes with their families or loved ones. The upcoming season is filled with remarkable and eye-opening changes, including twins who work together to shed weight, a married couple, and an inspirational story of an amputee who worked to shed the weight he gained after losing his limb.
