The ABC Television Network is airing the hit series “Extreme Weight Loss,” a unique, non-competitive show about weight loss the participants spent the first three months of their transformational at University of Colorado’s Anschutz Health and Wellness Center (AHWC).

AHWC offers some of the country’s most advanced research and science-based expertise, focusing on a comprehensive wellness approach including weight loss and management, fitness and nutrition.

The show documents the 365-day journey of 17 “super obese” people whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight and who undergo a transformation not only of their bodies, but of who they are as individuals.

Holly Wyatt, MD, medical director at AHWC and on the show, is a guiding force in helping “Extreme Weight Loss” participants safely lose up to half their body weight.  Wyatt has extensive clinical and scientific research experience using behavioral treatment, diet and exercise to help people lose weight. Wyatt works alongside transformation specialist and trainer Chris Powell on the participants’ weight loss journey. 

JD Roth, executive producer of “Extreme Weight Loss” and CEO of Eyeworks USA, “Season four of “Extreme Weight Loss” highlights a new and evolved approach to our process, which we owe largely to the commitment and expertise of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center. We’re so gratified to have partnered with this driving, innovative institution, and look forward to growing that relationship over the life of the EWL franchise.”
