** Peter briefly tried going on a diet so he could meet the weight limit for a roller coaster at Six Flags. However, he soon gives up and resorts to using a corset to make himself look thinner. The results are predictable; the ride cant handle his real weight and ends up crashing, killing several passengers.
* ''TheCritic'' has an episode where Jay and Marty decides to enroll in a high-class FatCamp due to both of them having trouble with people mocking them for their weight. Jay only loses about 2 pounds (which he is elated over, calling it his "college weight", but Marty drops a substantial amount of weight and becomes quite handsome and popular in school. However, he begins to buckle under the pressure of popularity, as well as the stress of playing PeterPan in the school play. By the end, he's gained his original weight back from a massive ice cream binge, and is about to get beaten up for ruining the play, only to immediately slide back into popularity when the building engineer reveals that Marty damaged the school roof and the school has to close for a month of repairs.

* A major plot arc in ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', as Daphne started gaining weight after she got together with Niles. She was put on a regimen and eventually sent to some sort of fat camp. This storyline was a clever trick used by the writers to mask the fact that Jane Leeves was actually pregnant.

* PlayedWith on ''Series/BabylonFive'': [[DaChief Garibaldi]] is ordered by Dr. Franklin to go on a restricted diet (or rather... a ''[[InsistentTerminology food plan]]'') because of various problems his body is suffering due to the after effects of being shot InTheBack by TheMole in an earlier season. Meanwhile, [[TheCaptain Captain Sheridan]] is ordered to eat what he considers "Rabbit Food" because he has gained ten pounds since his previous exam. [[TheLancer Commander Ivanova]] is ordered to eat more because she is suffering nutrition deficiencies because she doesn't eat enough healthy food; in addition, this is messing with her recovery from her broken foot (from the previous episode). Since all three of them are required to eat something that they hate and one of the others loves, this results in a scene where Garibaldi takes Ivonova's pasta, Sheridan takes Garibaldi's steak, and Ivonova takes Sheridan's salad and they try (Unsuccessfully) to eat them before Dr Franklin arrives in the mess.

* Yukari Nashimoto of ''Manga/TsurezureChildren'' watches her weight very often in her focus chapters, but the stand out one is Chapter 152. Because she eats too many snacks, she decides to decrease the amount of food she eats during the day. By decrease, we mean starve, and it gets so noticeable that her crush comes over just to give her something to eat.
