Supersize vs Superskinny is back for a 2nd series!
ARE you extremely
overweight and looking to kick start a healthier life style?
super slim and desperate to put on a few pounds?
Hosted by GP
Dr Christian Jessen and serial dieter Anna Richardson, Supersize vs
Superskinny is the ultimate magazine show about food, weight and
programme will see two contributors with wildly contrasting eating
habits enter a special diet den. For 5 days a superskinny undereater
will swap diet and lifestyle with a supersize overeater. The
participants couldn’t be more different in their attitudes towards
food, but will discover they are both putting their health in danger
with their eating habits and lifestyle. After the swap, they
both embark on a 12-week healthy eating regime. Both the swap and
new regime will take place under strict medical supervision.
At the end of the 12-week period the show catches up with the 2
contributors to find out whether they have transformed their bad
eating habits for good.
Series 1 saw amazing results from our ‘swappers’ and
now it’s time to challenge eight more pairs to embark on a healthier
new life! We are looking for people now who want to change their
relationship with food for good.
Alongside the diet swap, the series will also examine the mine field
of issues around weight, food and body image. The series will also
explore the truth behind eating disorders as we follow a group of
six anorexic women undergoing three months of specialist treatment
for their illness. And serial dieter Anna Richardson will
return and pick up her quest to drop a dress size or 2. In this
series she’ll embark on a journey that takes her to the mecca of the
skinny Minnie – Los Angeles. She’ll be meeting the people who
worship at the altar of the body beautiful and finding out just what
the stars really do when it comes to diet and fitness.
So if you are unhappy with your weight and desperate for a change,
email with your contact details, height and weight
plus a latest photo if possible.
