"Extreme Weight Loss": Jeff and Juliana's journey begins at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center

Highlands Ranch, Colo. (PRWEB) September 03, 2014

An inspiring story of the importance of family, love and perseverance will be documented in the season finale of “Extreme Weight Loss” Season Four. This final episode introduces a father and his teenage daughter from Highlands Ranch, Colo. who have a strained relationship. He weighs 423 pounds and she weighs 265 pounds. Their challenge is to team up to lose a combined 330 pounds.

Featuring a unique, non-competitive approach to weight loss transformations, “Extreme Weight Loss” airs TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network.

15-year-old Juliana was born to Jeff and his wife later in life (her two siblings are more than a decade older). As a result, Juliana struggles to connect with her father, often feels ignored and overlooked and can no longer hide her resentment toward him. Jeff has realized that he needs to be a better father to Juliana and has vowed to be a better role model. This episode documents Jeff and Juliana’s year-long physical and emotional journey.

New in Season Four, each “Extreme Weight Loss” participant spends the first 90 days of his or her weight loss journey at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center (AHWC) in Aurora, CO. Holly Wyatt, MD, medical director for the AHWC, also serves as medical director for the television program 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 Jeff and Juliana will “pay 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 a scholarship to the one-week, evidence-based “Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp” transformation program.

The University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center 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.
