About the Show
X-Weighted is a series of documentaries about ordinary people each fighting their individual war on fat. Carrying between 40 to 150 extra pounds each, they run, climb, pump, bike and dance their way to healthier weights, during periods of four to six months.
X-Weighted records all the plans and pitfalls, gripes and grit that go hand-in-hand with achieving this often-exasperating goal. The emphasis is on the underlying causes and on-going triggers for excess weight as these frank but feisty people grapple with their personal flaws, emotional baggage and suppressed conflicts.
Each episode follows one person's story from fatness to fitness, with the exception of one episode featuring two friends who team up.
X-Weighted includes guidance served up by experts in fitness, nutrition and life management. Fitness Expert Paul Plakas advises on exercise and nutrition to all the participants. And self-esteem expert Fred Connors provides self-confidence support and image tips.
