Episode Summary

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. Although Boogie makes fun of his figure in online comedy videos, he's deeply distressed at his size and is devastated he won't be able to dance with his bride on his wedding day. Plus, former anorexia sufferer and journalist Emma Woolf concludes her two-part investigation into the prevalence of eating disorders among athletes as she meets a triathlete who conquered both anorexia and bulimia.moreless
