Tonight's episode of 'Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition' tells the story of Dana, a 45-year-old bachelor from Tennessee, who once tipped the scales at over 500 pounds.
His life changed forever after he was accepted as a contestant on the ABC reality series that tracked his weight-loss journey over the span of a year.
But Dana's tale (Mon., June 13, 10PM ET on ABC) involves more than shedding the pounds. As with many people, there's an emotional component to his eating. After Dana's story unfolds (but his weight-loss progress hits a plateau), he'll share an intense and emotional confrontation with host Chris Powell that will bring that issue out in the open.
AOL TV spoke exclusively to Dana about his journey and how the show drastically altered his lifestyle.
