Is It Any Good?

Since each episode is only 30 minutes long -- and the first 10 minutes are dedicated to the doctor's ominous predictions of early death -- the show tends to present a very simplified overview of the health-makeover process and understate the hurdles that accompany such an extreme lifestyle overhaul. But there's no denying that the results are inspiring, especially when the subjects' "before" and "after" photos and organ scans are compared, showing their bodies' newfound rejuvenation.

Turn Back Your Body Clock includes information about recommended daily allowances of food and drink, risk factors for various diseases, and easy fitness tests viewers can do at home. The series' educational quality makes it a great choice for watching and discussing with teens and a powerful motivator for including exercise and the four food groups in your family's daily routine.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
