* One episode of ''Series/StillStanding'' sees Linda date a younger and extremely physically fit man, which prompts Bill and Judy to try to exercise more. Unfortunately, they're both horribly out of shape, but that doesn't stop them from trying to hide their pain from one another.
* "Love Hungry," an episode of ''Series/TalesFromTheDarkside'', featured an overweight woman who had exhausted every trick in the book trying to lose weight. She applies for a unique new method and is sent a pair of headphones that allow her to hear the screams of food as it's being eaten, which prompts her to run from a restaurant. She then uses the next item in the diet kit, a pair of glasses; these cause her to see food as sentient and able to communicate with her. Her conversations with some fruit and a JELL-O mold are largely PlayedForLaughs...[[MoodWhiplash until the ending]], where, despite growing famished, the woman can't bring herself to eat her "friends" and ''sews her own mouth shut'', starving to death.

* 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).

[[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.

* About 50% of ''ComicStrip/{{Cathy}}'' strips are in some way about Cathy trying - and failing - to lose weight. The rest are usually about her trying to improve her appearance or meet men.

* An episode of ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' has Cody trying to help the hotel's chef lose weight. He manages to do it by telling him not to think of it as a diet, but a lifestyle choice. Additionally, Zack (who had become a glutton for sweets in the episode) is also put on a cold turkey diet, until his mother realizes it's too extreme and agrees to allow a small amount of sweets to curb his temptation. Meanwhile, one of London's socialite friends tells London she's fat and that Maddie is too skinny, so London spends the episode starving herself and working out, while Maddie gorges on food. London becomes exhausted from a lack of food and Maddie becomes too bloated to wear a dress for a model show (despite not appearing any bigger than normal), and the two accept their bodies when the socialite is revealed to be stuffing her bra full of toilet paper.

* ''WesternAnimation/OggyAndTheCockroaches'' has had two episodes: "Oggy's Diet" and "Dee Dee's Diet". In Oggy's episode, it was so he could catch the cockroaches easier, for Dee Dee, it was so he could ''avoid'' being caught. Dee Dee actually managed to shed the pounds...only to gain them back in the end.
