Production[edit]

The reality documentary series was announced in April 2010;[1] the six-part television series features people who have compulsive eating disorders;[2] each episode introduces two people whose lives are threatened by harmful eating habits and features doctors trying to help them to overcome the disorders.[3]

JD Roth, one of the producers of the series, said, "One might assume that a show about severe eating disorders would focus solely on participants' bizarre behavior around food; but this show really is about the incredible fortitude and strength of people with intense obstacles to overcome [...]. We're very proud to be working with E! [...] in offering hope and a path to recovery."[1]
