The program follows a group of overweight adults who are members of a body acceptance organization, EAT-UP. The mostly male group organizes weekly meetings at all you can eat restaurants, and organizes eat-ins where the group's members contact the local media and try to get press exposure for their activities. The group has an adversarial relation with the local medical establishment, which organizes anti-obesity programs in the local schools. EAT-UP objects to the tone of the program's literature, and promotes an alternative model, entitled healthy at any size. The two groups come to a head and tempers are tested.
