Plot Synopsis

During the summer before they start college, young adults work with weight-loss gurus and experts, who take them through rigorous fitness programs and teach them to change the habits that caused them to gain so much weight. These teens lose between 60-100 pounds and debut their new look on their first day of college, but they also figure out who they are and undergo an emotional transformation that is equally remarkable. Each one-hour episode focuses on a different student, from the last weeks of high school through the first crucial days of college. At end end of each episode, the program follows up with the teen after a few months of college to see if they've kept off the weight and kept up the attitude.
