A new Discovery+ show challenges seven people who weigh 400-800 pounds to make a positive difference in their lives. Losing weight is their ultimate goal.


On June 2, Discovery+ will premiere "Too Large," a new show by the TLC network. The teaser clip was first aired on May 6. It is similar in concept to the popular series "My 600-Lb Life."

However, the patients in this show receive help from Dr. Charles Procter, not Dr. Younan Nowzaradan. As per the teaser trailer, Dr. Procter is an accomplished bariatric surgeon.

The new reality television series features Dr. Procter guiding overweight and obese individuals who weigh between 400 and 800 pounds through bariatric surgery qualification.

All seven people are concerned with losing weight for different reasons. One man wishes it would mend his relationship with his ex, while a mother yearns to play outside with her son.


The first episode of this new show features Meghan and Vanessa, two friends who embark on weight-loss journeys together. Meghan weighs 496 pounds, so she requires oxygen to breathe.

Participants weighed over 600 pounds at the start of the show.


According to Meghan, she's afraid for her life day after day due to her weight. The next step for her is bariatric surgery, and she intends to convince Vanessa to have the same procedure as well.

Dr. Procter warns Meghan that one twisted ankle can make her immobile for the rest of her life. Suddenly, Meghan finds herself crying and asking about what it's like to walk down the aisle and be a married woman.


Many people anticipate that "Too Large" can help them lose weight, as several participants in "My 600-Lb Life" achieved considerable success with their weight loss transformations. 


My 600 lb Life

," which has been airing since 2012, was intended to cover four morbidly obese individuals in five episodes. However, because of the show's popularity, new episodes have been filmed. 


Participants weighed over 600 pounds at the start of the show. To reach healthy weights, the stars tried to control weight loss. Over 161,424 pounds have been drained by these determined people.

Physically and mentally, losing extreme amounts of weight is challenging. Regardless, the participants' successful weight loss journeys just go to show it is not impossible to change one's lifestyle.
