The Style Network Continues Its Fight Against Obesity With the Network's First-Ever Town Hall Special, "Too Fat for 15: The Obesity Crisis," Premiering Monday, June 27 at 8:00 PM ET/PT

Host Alison Sweeney of NBC's "The Biggest Loser" is Joined By Style Talent Ruby from Her Hit Emmy-Nominated Series "Ruby" and Students Tanisha, Carsyn and Rachel from Emmy-Nominated Series "Too Fat for 15: Fighting Back"

Los Angeles, CA, June 6, 2011 - As part of its "Fight with Style" pro-social initiative, The Style Network takes on the campaign to combat obesity among children and adults with the premiere of its first-ever town hall special, "Too Fat for 15: The Obesity Crisis," on Monday, June 27 at 8:00pm ET/PT. Alison Sweeney of NBC's "The Biggest Loser" hosts this one-hour event and is joined by Style talent and health experts in a spirited discussion that offers parents and children advice and tips for a healthier lifestyle. The town hall also includes questions from the audience and candid answers from the panel participants, covering a range of topics from how to deal with bullies who call a young girl "fat" to how cold weather is not an excuse for being inactive. The town hall was filmed in St. Louis, MO, at the West County YMCA.

An inspiration to millions, Ruby Gettinger from her hit Emmy-nominated Style series "Ruby" sits down with Alison to talk about her own personal struggles with weight and what families can do to fight obesity. One of the most concerning aspects of this epidemic is how many children are affected and at risk. Students Tanisha, Carysn and Rachel from the Emmy-nominated docu-series "Too Fat for 15: Fighting Back" show off their amazing weight loss and share their stories with the audience to provide encouragement and motivation.

St. Louis Rams' wide receiver Brandon Gibson and Wellspring Academy physical trainer and coach John Taylor, who is featured on "Too Fat for 15: Fighting Back," discuss the importance of exercising while a nutritionist and chef offer easy, healthy recipe options. In addition, a variety of useful and practical information on fighting obesity is provided by Y-USA Senior Director of Chronic Disease Prevention, Dr. Matt Longjohn and Dr. Denise Wilfley, Director, Weight Management & Eating Disorders Program at Washington University in St. Louis.

"Too Fat for 15: The Obesity Crisis" is produced by The Style Network. Executive producers are Renee Simon and Ruth Rafidi.
