          Overweight or Underfed?

          September 23, 2011

          Should overweight children be removed from their homes? Dr. Phil and co-host of the Emmy-award winning talk show The Doctors, health and wellness expert Jillian Michaels talk to two parents of overweight children about the hot-button issue. Plus, Amanda says she’ll do anything to keep her daughter, Alyssa, thin, even if it means depriving her of food. Can Dr. Phil help Amanda overcome her weight obsession before Alyssa pays the price?

          Saving Alex
          When Jerri’s 14-year-old son, Alex, reached 555 pounds, her state’s Department of Social Services removed the teen from his home and accused Jerri of being a negligent parent. Now, Dr. Phil sits down with the mom to hear her side of the story. Plus, Alex speaks for the first time about the life-changing move.

          Did social services make the right call?

Co-hosts of the Emmy-award winning talk show The Doctors , health and wellness expert Jillian Michaels and pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears, get to the root of his mysterious weight problem.
