    • Joseph vs Rebecca
      In the Feeding Clinic, Joseph, a 22 and a half stone honey nut cereal addict, swaps meals with Superskinny breakfast-skipping runner Rebecca who weighs in at just seven and a half stone. During the diet swap, Rebecca breaks down after reading a letter from her dad, realising just how worried he is about her health, while Joseph is horrified when Dr Christian shows him the huge amounts of salt and sugar in his cereal packed diet. Before Rebecca and Joseph enter the feeding clinic, Dr Christian sends Joseph to Arkansas, America to meet an overweight internet sensation: 37 and a half stone, Boogie.
