“Extreme Weight Loss”: Josh and Kelli’s Journeys Begin at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center
Date:5/28/2015

Aurora, Colo. (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

The second episode of “Extreme Weight Loss” Season 5 features two very different people who share a need to transform their lives. Josh (29 years old) is a gay firefighter from outside of Omaha, NE, struggling to deal with the death of his father. Kelli (26 years old) is a former college basketball player from Kansas City, MO, who went into depression after her playing career ended.

Josh and Kelli’s amazing transformations will be featured in one episode of “Extreme Weight Loss” on TUESDAY, JUNE 2 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network.

Josh’s father – who was also a firefighter – was killed while en route to an emergency call, despite Josh’s efforts to save him. As he dealt with the loss, Josh grew to 399 pounds. Meanwhile, without basketball in her life, Kelli ate everything she wanted and continued gaining weight until she reached 331 pounds. Now, Josh is ready to end his habit of late-night eating and watching TV, while Kelli is determined to free herself from her post-basketball depression. This episode documents their incredible, emotionally and physically challenging weight loss journeys.

“Extreme Weight Loss” returns to the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center for Season 5, where cast members will again spend the first 90 days of their weight loss journeys. Holly Wyatt, MD, medical director for the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center, also serves as medical director for the television program. She’s affectionately known as “Dr. Holly” to the cast members and is seen on the show each week helping participants safely lose up to half of their body weight.

At the end of this episode, Josh and Kelli will each continue the tradition of “paying it forward” by giving a friend or family member the opportunity to transform his or her life. The CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center will provide the designees with a place to begin their own weight loss journeys at the one-week, evidence-based Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp transformation program.

Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp was inspired by Wyatt’s participation in the TV show. She designed the boot camps to provide participants with the tools they need to complete their own successful weight loss transformations – without the TV cameras! Limited space is available in upcoming boot camps and weight loss seekers are encouraged to learn more and register now.

The CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center is recognized as a global leader in the fight against obesity. It offers some of the country’s most advanced research and science-based expertise, focusing on a comprehensive weight loss and weight management approach, including fitness, nutrition and wellness services.
