This is a show I completely stumbled on by accident. It basically has 2 people 1 too skinny & 1 too fat & they switch diets for 5 days. They seem to live together get to know each other & make the meals they usually eat & serve it to each other. That is only part of the show. They also follow a group of Anorexic's going through therapy. We get to learn about them a little bit more every week which is very informational & entertaining. It's all about the extremely deep issues of their problems w/food. I've learned that Anorexia is so much more complicated then just not eating. It's deep emotional issues that have found a form in controlling their food intake so that they can feel they have control of something. I am currently watching Season 3 & this year has a journalist named Anna Richardson trying to get her body in shape by any means necessary. She is not only a excellent journalist, she's also quite funny & has no shame which really makes you gravitate towards what she's doing from week to week as well. She really let's you in on all the things she's unhappy about w/her body. She has no qualms about showing you what she can't stand about her almost 40 year old body. The truth is she really is an attractive woman that just wants to look younger. Even if you aren't interested in this sort of program, you will still be entertained by the excellent stories presented in each program.
