This episode reveals the couple’s roller-coaster ride through the transformation process, as Bryce sets out to become a better example for his son, and Amber takes on the challenge of replacing her old diet of 100% fast food with healthy choices.

Season 5 of the hit ABC series "Extreme Weight Loss" offers a new twist with three special companion piece editions -- "Love Can't Weight" -- in which three obese couples get in shape, both physically and emotionally, for each of their weddings. In this episode, Bryce and Amber, from Southern California, are determined to put an end to their bad eating habits.

The couple’s incredible transformation will be featured on “Extreme Weight Loss: Love Can’t Weight” on TUESDAY, JULY 7 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network.

Bryce (35 years old) weighs 306 pounds, and Amber (32 years old) weighs 249 pounds. The two met through an online dating service and were instantly attracted to each other by a shared love of laughter and food.

Overeating is the couple’s answer to stressful situations. Food comforted Bryce during an unexpected divorce, and Amber started her bad eating habits during the drama of her parents’ divorce.

This episode reveals the couple’s roller-coaster ride through the transformation process, as Bryce sets out to become a better example for his son, and Amber takes on the challenge of replacing her old diet of 100% fast food with healthy choices.

Like the cast members on “Extreme Weight Loss,” the couples will begin their transformation journey attending boot camp at the renowned University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colo. The center’s associate director Holly Wyatt, MD, serves as medical director for the television program. Wyatt is affectionately known as “Dr. Holly” to the cast members and is seen on the show each week helping the couples safely lose up to half of their body weight, as well as the emotional baggage that often holds one back, in preparation for their weddings.

At the end of this episode, Bryce and Amber will 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 camp 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.
