Super Skinny Me

 - Dec 13, 2007
A new UK documentary took the Super Size Me documentary to the extreme opposite. The show features two female journalists who apply a range of celebrity get-slim-quick techniques, most of which are very unhealthy.

The goal? Find out what it takes for an average sized woman to fit into the iconic size 0, or UK size 4. The British journalists begin the challenge as average sizes, 10 and 12 and set out to attain their goal within two months.

In Super Skinny Me, doctors are on site constantly checking up on the health of the slim seekers, evaluating both their physical and psychological health. Some people might accuse the producers of putting their stars at a health risk, but just like Super Size Me, the intention is to make a point, and to do it effectively, the procedure most be extreme.
