One town. One big obesity problem. Ninety days later – did they reach their goal of losing a ton of collective weight? Obesity in Canada is out of control and nowhere is it more apparent than in Taylor, British Columbia. But this small northern community, with a die-hard team of experts, committed to losing 2,000 pounds by embracing new eating habits and grueling fitness challenges for three months. With their relationships pushed to the brink and their lifestyles are dramatically overhauled, did the town achieve their goal? The Season Finale of the ground-breaking series, Village On A Diet, premieres on Monday, March 7, 2011 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC Television. The follow-up episode of how-are-they-doing-now will immediately follow a week later on Monday, March 14, 2011 at 9 p.m. on CBC.

In the Season Finale, we see how the Taylorites have transformed their bodies and their lives in the last three months—and it’s now time for them to experience the fruits of their labours. Jamie and George’s wedding day finally arrives, and all eyes are on the bride. Brent and Sheena make a hopeful return visit to the fertility doctor for a pregnancy test. Town Crier Glen Cross anxiously awaits the results of the final truck scale weigh-in—has Taylor really succeeded in losing a ton of weight?

In the long-awaited follow-up episode, the experts return to a winterized Taylor four months after the camera crews left, to see if residents have gone “beyond the diet” and achieved a lasting lifestyle change. Temperatures may have dropped dramatically in Taylor this winter, but has the town’s commitment plummeted as well? What they find will surprise everyone, including the townspeople.
