Unlike competitor Biggest Loser, this show seems genuinely concerned about promoting good lifelong health habits.

Season 5 opens with twin brothers, former high-school basketball players who each weigh almost 400 pounds. They're also L.A. Lakers fans, and get to meet Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash; and play two-on-two against Byron Scott and James Worthy at their six-month milestone.
