This feature-length documentary follows a man as he sheds nearly half his body weight (63.5 kg) by complete starvation under hospital observation. The film explores what brought him to so desperate a course and catalogues what actions other overweight people are taking, singly or in groups, to reduce to healthier proportions. Medical authorities comment on some misconceptions and malpractices of the slimming industry.

    This is a great film. This is a real and 'down-to-earth' "reality show". I wonder how Mr. Lorrain did, keeping weight off through the years. Is he still alive? He would be in his 70's by now. A very commendable and courageous man, he showed great resolve in his efforts. I hope he had a great life.

    A very interesting film - perhaps an idea for future studies would be to examine carefully these horrible weight loss ideas from only 50 years ago and see if maybe they are precursors to eating disorders.
