I Want To Save Your Life premiered on WE on April 25, 2009. Charles Stuart Platkin, known as the Diet Detective, goes undercover with help from the participant's friends, family and or co-workers, following the unsuspecting subject on her or his daily routines - from preparing breakfast for their children, to the fast food drive-through during their lunch break, to a quick stop at the local coffee shop - identifying their negative patterns and pitfalls every step of the way. The key, according to Platkin, is uncovering what's going on inside their lives to help them change the outside. And once he does, there's no escaping the truth. The series features individuals from all backgrounds the single mom who puts herself last on the priority list; the comedian who uses his wit to hid behind his weight; the attorney who uses food to de-stress. No matter what their background or profession, no matter what their weakness, they are real people who need to make real changes in order to save themselves. While they all have a desire to live a healthier life, up until now, they haven't been able to do it alone. During each half-hour episode, Platkin moves in to the participant's life for a week, working with them 24/7 to provide the necessary awareness and tools that will make the difference in their everyday lives.
