About the Show

Chubby Chasers explores a world where, when it comes to the female shape, big is beautiful, but bigger is even better. In Chubby Chasers, we visit a parallel universe on our own doorstep where fat isn't just acceptable, it's desirable – a place where you really can have your cake and eat it too. At a time when most Western cultures are obsessed with slim bodies, this documentary hears from the women who actively celebrate their ample curves and talks to the men who can't get enough of big women. From Big Girls Parties and Belly Babe Models to Satin Sensations in a size 42, Britain’s big, beautiful women are out and proud and it's getting easier every day for them to be that way. They're throwing out the tent dresses and flaunting what they've got. And the guys certainly aren't complaining. Chubby Chasers examines the whole phenomenon of chubby chasing, entering their world, going to their parties and specialist clubs and revealing their on-line activities.

Hot? You think it's hot that these girls have a serious problem and that will lead to serious medical problems and death?

I have been up and down most of my adult life with weight. I would get to an ideal weight, then I would start to overeat again. I was in denial that the weight would creep back on, but it did. My weight gain was my fault. Two years ago i was going to the gym everyday, and eating 1200 to 1500 calories a day. I lost 30 pounds. Then I decided to treat myself to unhealthy food every day. I just got lazy and started eating fast food again. The weight I had lost crept back on. (MY fault). I have been working out now again for the past 5 months and eating 1200 to 1800 calories a day. (I count my calories every single day and I eat healthy)I have lost over 60 pounds so far and it just keeps coming off. I treat myself to a piece of chocolate or an ice cream bar or a hamburger every couple weeks to once a month, that way I still can have those things without losing control. It is a mind thing. Only you can control what goes into your mouth. There is no excuse for not changing how you eat. Also, cut out the soda and juice as well. Water is the only thing I drink.I had a soda for the first time in 5 months the other day. I took one drink and threw the rest away. If you do what i do, your cravings for unhealthy foods and drinks will end. It's a struggle, but weight loss is possible if you put your mind to it.

ha ha - tried everything? yeah right. Have you tried eating normal portions? Have you tried not eating as much.

One thing obese people have in large quantities (besides lard) is denial.

The question should be - why is it that anorexics and bulimics not only have the calorie intake addressed but also the mental illness side of things and yet for overweight people its only the calories that people focus on ? Surely no one actually thinks there is NO mental issue with ' big ' people - how can it not be looked at as an eating disorder because that's what it is .
Address the mental issue same as for anorexics an then retrain/ educate re the food.
Even an obese child must have a mental issue of sorts if they never feel full?

I agree wholeheartedly. And I am not a small girl (80kgs, 5'8"). I overeat as an emotional response to situations. Chronic overeating most definitely has a mental/ emotional cause (in my experience). Yay for you for pointing it out!

It's not what you eat but more like :what's eating you?

I have watched this show and read some comments. Shame on a lot of you negative people. I too am a BBW, I have tried to lose some weight for health reasons but it is a long road. And don't try, to think that I also don't get out and about cos I do. I am a single mother who works all day on mt feet as a nurse and when my pager goes off, I can jump on a fire truck and run around with a fire hose as I am a volunteer firefighter (and believe me that is hard work.)
I was in awe of this show, esp when they showed that girl with the trachy but that is extreme and if someone can be adored no matter what, well I think that is totally awesome. To each his own, if you don't like it, well you don't. This was only a show which expressed the views of some women who found it empowering to be accepted for who they are.
