In Season 1, Chris Powell, shows up in their home and at their work to provide invaluable lessons in safe weight loss and healthy living. After 12 months of intensive guidance, their progress will be revealed and at the conclusion of each journey lives will be forever changed from the inside out.
Chirs Powel is so motivating. I watch the show and I see what these amazing people have done and I know that I can lose the small amount of weight that I have to take off when compared with what they have done. I got Chris's books and the weight is coming off and I am in better shape than I have been since highschool. I can hear Chris's voice im my mind when I am in the Gym working out to push me on and I do better.
Not bad. There've been enough of these types of shows on that you know what to expect - people think they're ready but they have no idea how hard weight loss really is 'til they do it, and some of them can hack it and some can't. Powell is fairly kind to them, even the ones in serious denial about how little they're doing and how much they're eating. The one thing I don't care for so much is the overdramatization, particularly the humiliation of weighing these folks on a freight scale. It's a flat out lie that they don't make medical scales for people who weigh a lot - medical scales can handle a thousand pounds. That's simply a ploy to humiliate the person and make for a melodramatic opening, and it's pretty unkind.
