A 27-year-old woman named Hannah reaches out to Chris and Heidi Powell, the personal trainers of Extreme Weight Loss. At 5’7” and 310 lbs., Hannah has been told by doctors that she’s too heavy to have children. Getting pregnant at her current weight is dangerous. Plus, her fertility issues are beginning to cause friction in her marriage.
Hannah wasn’t raised a healthy eater. She says her mother had to work the night as a nurse and took sleeping pills during the day leaving Hannah to make her own meals. Hannah tells EWL that sometimes she would eat “only ketchup out of a coffee mug because she thought it ‘tasted good.’” On the show, Chris and Heidi catch Hannah cheating on her diet. Can Hannah break her 20-year-old poor eating habits? Extreme Weight Loss airs Tuesdays at 9pm on ABC.
