* 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.

* ''AmericanDad'' has a PlayedForDrama version where Stan goes on a diet after his family points out that he's put on weight since his prime (as a response to him being a huge jerk to Steve's pudgy girlfriend). Stan ends up developing serious anorexia and is reduced to skin and bones, to the point where he has to be hospitalized.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' had several of these for Homer, the most famous one being the incident where he got stuck in the M.t Splashmore water slide and decided to drop about 40 pounds. He doesnt change much visually but does succeed in losing the weight.
** ''The Heartbroke Kid'' has Bart becoming seriously overweight due to getting addicted to junk food from the new school vending machines, to the point that he has a heart attack and has to be dragged off to a FatCamp. Its not until he realizes the impact his weight is having on his family (who had to open a hostel for rude German backpackers to pay for the camp) that he vows to take losing weight seriously.

* "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.
