An essential principal of this reality show is that overweight people contest and compete with each other to win $250,000 by losing high percentage of weight. At the beginning of every season, contestants are divided into teams and every team is assigned a skilled trainer. Trainers are mainly responsible to design and teach the contestants the complete workout plans as well as nutrition plans. It totally depends on the contestants how much of nutrition plan to follow and how much of exercise plan to execute in the absence of their trainer. This show begins with a weigh-in for determining the starting weights of the contestants. Every week culminates in another weigh-in for determining which team has lost the most amount of weight for the week in percentage. Every week, the team, which loses, should vote off one member of their team.
Teams of contestants rival one-on-one against each other, though they continue to work with their original trainers. Trainers of every team are inspired to push their contestants by a prearranged bonus structure. Inspirations for the contestants are same. People, who have been eliminated attempt to lose weight as they compete for the At Home prize of $100,000. Finalists continue to lose their weight under the supervision of their trainers of the show and eventually will compete for the big prize of $250,000. Amount of the time the finalists get before the finale differs from season to season.
