          "Fat Guy" Bikes Cross Country: To Save His Life or to Scam America?

          August 29, 2016

          Self-proclaimed “fat guy” Eric says he was 560 pounds and unhappy with his weight, so he decided to do something unexpected — go on an epic bike ride across America.

          He says his goals were to lose weight, write a book and rescue his failing relationship with his wife. The only problem was he had no money for the trip. So he set up a GoFundMe account and asked the public for help.

          After his story went viral, thousands of dollars rolled in and so did the critics, saying Eric was scamming America. Is Eric trying to lose weight and save his life and marriage, or is he just conning the country?

          Find out as he also confronts some of his “haters” face-to-face for the first time.

          Plus, Dr. Phil asks Eric to get on the scale for a weigh in.
