Lose 10kg in 30 days! Get a one month free gym membership trial! We’ve all seen these adverts in magazines and billboards, but the reality is that there’s no quick fix to weight loss and for people weighing over 600 pounds (272kg), the journey is even tougher.

This month, TLC Entertainment (135) brings you a brand new season of the popular series, My 600 LB Life, revealing eight individuals transforming year-long journey to weight loss. 

Collectively, they need to shed thousands of pounds to be productive members of society and regain their lives. Each episode will tell the powerful story of a different individual who has made the decision to undergo a dangerous gastric bypass surgery in an effort to save their life and change their world forever. Little sympathy is to be expected from gastric bypass surgeon Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, as he helps these patients on the race against time to become healthy again. 

Through ups and downs, they go back and forth in the fight of mind over matter to see through their decision for a chance at a better life.

Can they turn away from their old habits, bid farewell to a life of obesity and being ostracised and take back control of their lives again? Find out on My 600 LB Life premiering on Thursday 29 April at 20:00.
