Obese: Changing Your Life

1 season - 10 x 22 minutes

Production years 2016

Programme Overview

Narrated by Maryse Deraîche, a remarkable woman who rebuilt herself both physically and psychologically following bariatric surgery, the series follows six endearing, morbidly obese people experiencing the daily struggle of weight loss. Each episode invites us into the protagonists’ worlds as we follow their emotional journeys and their quest to get a second chance at life. 

Throughout the series, we come to learn that obesity has many root causes, and that bariatric surgery is far from a quick-fix miracle solution. Those who undergo it have to prepare, adapt and rebuilt their lives on every level, which is no easy feat! Follow these inspiring characters before, during and after the surgery that could change their lives forever.
