ABCNews.com: Chris Powell of Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition Provides Therapy Through Exercise
“Chris Powell, the man who orchestrates each jaw-dropping weight transformation on “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition,” says his secret as a hard-charging training has less to do with exercising people’s bodies than exorcising their demons.
“There is a tie to some kind of emotional trauma, in the past, of people I’ve worked with, and that trauma is typically unaddressed,” he said.
Powell has helped 11 super-obese people lose more than a ton of weight on the show: 2,198 pounds, to be exact. But in addition to helping people shrink to half their size, Powell also has gotten them to open up about a whole range of psychological issues,…”

Mike Giannulis weighed close to 500 pounds at the age of 28. His weight made him depressed, insecure, and too embarrassed to talk to women. But now, after working out and eating right for over a year on the Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, Giannulis has shed 255 pounds and is ready to find love.
Giannulis said that he ignored his weight problem for a long time.
“I don’t have a full-length mirror anywhere in the whole entire house, and if I can just avoid seeing myself … out of sight out of mind… I want to share who I am with somebody else, but I mean, who would want to see this? I just feel like no girl deserves this.”
ABC reports that Extreme Makeover trainer Chris Powell worked with Giannulis over the course of a year to achieve his goal of losing half of his body weight. By the 90-day mark, Giannulis had lost 129 pounds. By the six month mark, he had found a new girlfriend.
Giannulis even competed in a triathlon, something that he once thought was impossible.
Giannulis’ girlfriend, Meghan, said:
“I know how hard Michael has worked at this triathlon. You don’t find many people like him. I love him so much. I’m just so proud of everything he’s done.”
Mike Giannulis was 493 pounds at the age of 28. Giannulis shed 255 pounds on Extreme Makeover and now weighs 238 pounds.
