At the start of his one-year journey, Jonathan learns the dangers his obesity has imposed upon his body: severe sleep apnea, a high risk for diabetes and low testosterone levels which can lead to multiple health threats. Chris knows what is at stake and challenges Jonathan to lose 250 pounds by the end of his year. Although he doesn't believe he can accomplish such a feat, Jonathan finds inspiration and motivation from his wife, Lisa, and their two boys.
Jonathan soon finds that, through the regimented diet and exercise program created by Chris, he is on his way -- paving the way towards regaining his health and decades' more time with his family.
