120 minutes

Extreme Weight Loss (previously Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition) documents the radical physical changes of “super obese” people (roughly 200 pounds or more overweight) who set out to lose half their body weight over the course of a full year. Each of the eight one-hour episodes will show a person going through a truly extreme transformation that has never been attempted for a reality TV series: Compressing a year’s worth of diet and exercise into a single hour.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I would actually go as far as saying that this show represents a big part of the American mentality. I am not talking about the weight problems here, but the idea, that everything is possible for everyone. Shows like this are never as pretty as shown on tv, but the message itself still stays the same. It can be used for inspiration for oneself to remind us, that whatever goal we want to reach, success depends on our choices and hard work and most of all the ability to continute to get up just one more time. I don´t know if the people and stories are all true, but there are people like that out there and the show is a nice way to remember that.
