Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition

Monday, May 30 at 10pm ET/PT (9CT, 8MT) **Series Premiere** on Citytv

Trainer and transformation specialist Chris Powell takes on proverbial over-achiever Rachel, who has been able to accomplish nearly everything she has set out to do so far in her young life — except the one goal that eludes her, to lose weight. At only 21 years old, Rachel weighs nearly 400 pounds. During her first week with Chris in “boot camp” at California Health & Longevity Institute, Rachel goes through extensive medical testing, nutrition classes and intense workouts. Chris then takes her back home to Georgia, where he lays out the goals for each of her four, three-month phases of weight loss. With Chris by her side, Rachel pushes hard hoping to reach her first goal of shedding 80 pounds in three months.
