Meet The 3000lb Family

The Anderson family is just like any other in America, but with one big exception: all six of them are morbidly obese. Altogether weighing in at over 3000 lb, two family members tip the scales at over 600 lb each, and they all suffer debilitating food addictions. This incredible series follows the family as they embark on a remarkable weight-loss journey, with a mission to cut the fat and break their destructive habits for good. Can they all stick to their plan to lose weight, or is it already too late? Let's meet the family.

Chitoka Light

Cousin Chitoka is 49 years old and weighs 670lb. Her size has become so debilitating that she has been housebound for almost 3 years. She is now bedridden and reliant on sister Sebeine to go shopping for her and help her around the house. 

Naomi Anderson

Naomi, is the youngest of her cousins at 29 years old and weighs 377lb. She wants to start a family soon, but knows her weight could prevent her from getting pregnant and could also cause a high risk of complications during pregnancy. Watching her bedridden cousin has made her more determined than ever to lose the weight.

Drew Stewart

Drew is 42 and with a weight of over 670lb, is the heaviest of the family. Drew hasn’t always been overweight, but over the years Drew’s weight has spiralled out of control. Although not yet bedridden, he realises he may be heading the same way as cousin Chitoka. Weight loss surgery is now his only hope.
