We have seen some amazing animal weight-loss stories over the years, and My Fat Pet wants to make that the norm.

Animal Planet‘s upcoming series is looking to tackle the pet obesity epidemic head-on, helping dangerously overweight cats and dogs shed the pounds through a safe training and diet plan. Animal expert and trainer Travis Brorsen will be coaching these critters through their journey, creating individuals diet and exercise programs for each of the animals he meets. 

The furry friends featured on My Fat Pet will be animals that need help immediately. Obesity increases an animal’s chances of getting diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, just like in humans, and these pets are risking their lives at their current weight. Of course, pet obesity isn’t just the animal’s problem — while Brorsen helps pets get healthy, he will also be showing owners what their pets are struggling through now and how they need to change their own behaviors to help them.

After setting the weight-loss wheel in motion, Brorsen will check in on the pets and their families four months later to see what the final weigh-in reveals.

The journey from fat pet to slimmed-down sweetie begins this fall on Animal Planet.

For Gwyneth Paltrow, self-care is one of the keys to being a present parent.

“When my kids were younger, I put them first to the point where I exhausted myself,” the actress, 44, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue of raising daughter Apple Blythe Alison, 12, and Moses Bruce Anthony, 10.

“It led to me being short-tempered,” she adds. “I thought, ‘What if I gave myself permission to take a 20-minute nap and let them be on their iPads and not beat myself up?’ ”

Paltrow points out that she’s not alone in feeling this way. On her website Goop, she says, “We did a piece on post-natal depletion that went viral.”

“So many women were writing in saying things like, ‘I feel like I can’t recover, what can I do about it?’ ” the actress and mother of two continues.

Though she’s just developed supplements to help cope with that type of everyday exhaustion (she currently takes her Goop Wellness vitamin pack called Why am I so Effing Tired?), Paltrow insists that her daily wellness strategy is simple.

“I would say honestly every day what I do for my health is make sure that I really connect and hug my children. And lie with them at night,” she says.

“Nothing fills me up more. They say that if you strengthen and amplify your family and love connections, it’s the best thing for your health, so I always try to make sure that I do that every day. It’s not hard — they’re pretty cute!”

The Amazing Race is headed into uncharted territory — and PEOPLE has an exclusive sneak peek at the first two minutes of the CBS reality competition’s new season.

“Today, in an Amazing Race first, 22 complete strangers are meeting each other for the first time — at the starting line,” host Phil Keoghan says in the clip from the season 29 premiere, which will air March 30.

Addressing the new contestants, Keoghan, 49, primes the strangers for their new adventure.

“Welcome to Grand Hope park in downtown Los Angeles, the start of an amazing race unlike any race we’ve ever had before. This is all about first impressions, so take a really good look at the people standing around you … because you are about to pair up with a complete stranger for a nine-country, 17-city, 36,000 mile race around the world.”

Some contestants welcome the change in concept. (The series traditionally casts pairs of contestants with pre-existing relationships, though the show has experimented with random pairings in the past.)

FROM COINAGE: The Most Expensive TV Shows of All Time

“It doesn’t even matter who you pair me up with,” says Shamir Arzeno, a 28-year-old banker from Bronx, New York. “I’m gonna throw them on my shoulder and make sure that we win.”

But others seem to be worried about which contestant they’ll end up traveling with around the world.

“I really don’t want to be partners with the Asian Barbie,” Jessie Lynn Shields, a 28-year-old K-9 police officer from Howland, Ohio, says of fellow contestant Jenn Lee. “She’s only here because she thinks she looks good.”

And while that might be true, the “Asian Barbie” has a game plan.

“I’ll definitely use my looks to my advantage to win the race and the $1 million,” says Lee, a 25-year-old model from Southern California.

Before the end of the clip, Keoghan sends the contestants — who have yet to be paired up — off on their first challenge of the season.

Season 29 of The Amazing Race premieres Thursday, March 30 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
