Chris Powell, the man who orchestrates each jaw-dropping weight transformation on "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition," says his secret as a hard-charging training has less to do with exercising people's bodies than exorcising their demons. Powell has helped 11 super-obese people lose more than a ton of weight on the show: 2,198 pounds, to be exact. Although he admits he is "absolutely not" professionally qualified to advise on these issues, Powell said he approaches it like a friend would. Learning to love yourself as a cure for morbid obesity might sound like psycho-babble, but Powell, 34, said it works. Given Powell's rock-hard abs and intensity, you would never guess he was once a scrawny kid who failed to make the high school football team. Powell became a trainer and even appeared on "Good Morning Arizona." But after some bad business deals, he found himself living out of his car. It was in that low moment that Chris Powell said he learned to overcome his fear of failure and also vowed that he would teach others how to be healthy.
Powell said it symbolizes how many people have thanked him for making a positive change in their lives.
Overweight for as long as he can remember, Tony attributes his nutritionally unhealthy lifestyle and food addiction to an unstable family life throughout his childhood. Chris works with Tony to undo all of the years of unhealthy living that led up to this point.
To help get Tony back on track, Chris sends him to the Los Angeles Bodyguard Training Academy.

It wasn’t easy for him as he split from his non-supportive overweight fiance after about four months into the program and became homeless.
This man had every reason to give up but did not because the strength of conviction to reach his goal, and the healthful benefits of doing so, were able to outweigh all the negative things happening to him. His third 3 month went by fairly secretly as he was still very heavily stressed and occasionally getting into his new work mode and a new relationship.

At his 50th birthday party weigh in, 12 months into the program, a lithe, healthy, smiling man stood in front of a group of his relatives, friends and well wishers to see if he had achieved his goal.
Three months later he was happily and gainfully employed in his new role and proposed marriage to his new, supportive, girlfriend. Cannes Film Festival fashion: Amal Clooney, Blake Lively, Victoria BeckhamThe 69th Cannes Film Festival opened on Wednesday, May 11 with Woody Allen's new film. Ways to earn extra money: The side hustleRemember when a full-time job used to mean working 40 hours a week or more and bringing home a decent paycheck that would last, at least until the next pay check? But in addition to helping people shrink to half their size, Powell also has gotten them to open up about a whole range of psychological issues, including sexual abuse and alcoholism.
The trainer is known for moving in with his clients to makeover their lives and to break their bad habits. He had worked in food service management most of his career, but quit when he decided his weight had gotten out of control. His goal was to lose another 60 pounds at which he was unsuccessful only achieving about a 35 pound loss.
Look at the photos to see his jubilation, he had bettered his goal, not only physically transformed but mentally also. His overall health is greatly improved, life continues on a joyful note now and he has the bug to continue running and working out to stay that way. The last three are topped by horizontal lines, which means the base numbers should be multiplied by 1,000, so in Arabic numerals, they read 1, 100, 500, 1,000, 10,000, 100,000 and 1,000,000. During the first workout, we learn that Tony’s 28-year-old son, Marcus, is in the hospital fighting for his life. He did not have a regular job and was seeking to move into a completely new field that required job related training, networking and virtually impossible to do as a heavily overweight person. He did so by controlling his diet to drastically reduce unhealthy fats and sugars from his diet and eat more veggies to feel full. He continued his diet and training regime as best he could with all the stresses around him, but he never gave up hope.

At the 9 month weigh in he had achieved a huge amount of weight loss into the low 200 pounds region but was still carrying the excess rolls of overstretched skin that made life and running uncomfortable for him.
Terry Schaack at the California Health and Longevity Institute that, since he carries the majority of his fat on his abdomen, he is at high risk for a variety of cardiovascular complications. Speaking of Leslie, Chris challenges her to also undergo a transformation, but she doesn’t seem to be fully committed. His 28 year old son was dying from complications of cerebral palsy and eventually died during his yearlong weight loss training regime. It was arranged to have the excess skin surgically removed and took 6 to 8 weeks before he could continue his training regime.
Nutritionist Paulette lets him know that a lot of his weight comes from the sugary drinks he enjoys with each meal. Since he didn’t get to enjoy the honeymoon prize that was the reward for making his first weigh-in goal, Chris gives him the cash equivalent of the trip to help Tony get back on his feet. Not only was he homeless but near penniless as he only had a $20 bill in his pocket and $38 in his bank account on his 50th birthday. This is the first time his other son, Tony Jr., has seen him since he began his transformation. He also got into running by starting from walking and progressing by interspersing jogging then running until he could run continuously.
Chris makes him climb up over 400 feet in elevation to the scale at the top of a long set of steps. Chris says his friends at Wal-mart have provided him with a ,000 gift card to their stores.
