* 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.

* Chapter 64 of ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun'' has Sakura and Mikoshiba trying to lose weight out of fear that they've become fatter. They first attempt to simultaneously exercise their arms whilst doing their manga work, then they have Mayu help them with their work-out routine. It's all for nought when they go to Nozaki's house and see that he's baked a cake for them.

* 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.

-->'''''{{Garfield}}''''', [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1978&addr=780830 August 30, 1978]]

A character is sneaking out to the kitchen for a midnight snack. He is careful not to wake up his wife or else he'll get caught. The minute he opens the refrigerator, he suddenly hears footsteps, so he turns around just in time to see his wife standing [[{{Right Behind Me}} behind him]] with a stern expression on her face. The wife then promptly puts her husband on a diet for trying to raid the refrigerator at night.

* In one episode of ''Series/{{The Partridge Family}}'' Danny is teased for being fat, goes on a diet, and loses like 10 pounds, all without being noticibly slimmer. According to Danny Bonaduce's biography, it was not a pleasant episode to film.

* ''Comic/{{Garfield}}'' has numerous strips where Garfield is put on a diet by Jon, and sometimes by Liz. In the earlier years of the strip, 'Diet Week' was a regular theme, explained by [[WordOfGod Jim Davis]]'s claim that when ''he'' goes on a diet, so does Garfield.

\n* There is one episode of ''Series/{{Poirot}}'' called ''Literature/EvilUnderTheSun'', in which Literature/HerculePoirot has to go on a diet at the Sandy Cove Hotel on Miss Lemon's orders after an incident at an Argentinian restaurant has sent him to a hospital where he is declared "medically obese". [[spoiler:It turns out at the end that the incident is not obesity or his health problems but food poisoning--nine cases of it in fact (Poirot's was one of them), so the restaurant had to be shut down until it can work out the food poisoning bit.]]
