Watch Too Fat For 15: Fighting Back

The show begins with different kids from different areas of the United States and all sorts of areas. They are all overweight. Some are just moderately overweight while others are extremely overweight to the point that they can barely walk. They are to go to school at this camp.

During their time here, there are a few things that they are doing. Each week, they begin with a weigh in. They see if they have lost anything or if they have gained anything. They also then learn that if they get into trouble or go off the routine that has been designed for them, then they lose privileges such as how long they get on the phone to call home.

During their stay here, they sleep in cabins. They are assigned a tutor who leads them in classes. They also meet with a nutritionist as they learn how to make the right choices when they eat. They are assigned a personal trainer who leads them in exercise routines. They also have a counselor they are to meet with as losing weight is said to be more mind over matter than anything else.

In some episodes, you see how they encourage the kids to make the right choices. Each season, they have it where they take the kids out to eat to a buffet. The point of this is to get them to see that they have to choose the right things to eat. Sometimes they go to a sit down restaurant so they can practice how to order. They have the kids volunteering to run marathons and also they have them participating off campus in other opportunities to exercise and socialize with kids who might be a bit smaller than them weight wise. The biggest challenge is when kids have to face going home where they are away from the routine that was enforced and they are left to do the right thing with family who might not be as supportive as the kids might want them to be.
