At nine years old, Honey Boo Boo weighed 125 pounds in February, which is twice the average weight of a girl of her age and height -- 4'6". Making matters worse, Honey Boo Boo suffers from asthma.

This prompted the cast of The Doctors to stage an intervention for Honey Boo Boo in which they challenged the former reality star and her mother to change their eating habits. Honey Boo Boo accepted the challenge, pledging to drop at least 12 pounds.

Realizing the important role she plays in the process of getting Honey Boo Boo healthy, Mama June promised to try the program that The Doctors laid out for her, but she may not be as committed as they had hoped.
