The Obesity Clinic

2 x 52'

A new two-part observational documentary, with exclusive access, goes inside Ireland's first public weight management clinic. Filmed over ten months, eight individuals honestly share the truth about their struggle to loseweight. Over the course of the two episodes we hear from those who undergo gastric bypass surgery and those who hope to lose weight without surgical intervention.

During the documentaries we meet characters such as Sven who is admitted full time into hospital as his weight reaches dangerously high levels. As Christmas approaches Sven faces into a long road of weight loss, under medical supervision, that he hopes will lead to him having gastric bypass surgery and turning his life around.
