Fat shows

Postby Metalcharm » Sat Jul 30, 2011 5:52 pm

There seems to be a lot of fat shows on TV (mostly PayTV it seems) at the moment. Have you caught any of them?

On MTV there is the best one called I Used To Be Fat and I love this show. It takes fat kids, about 18 years old, and follows them for the summer before they go off to uni. They have a trainer who gives them info on all things healthy and for the most part these kids turn out great results. There was only one I saw that a boy lost his focus. I like this one because it's a very positive show . .there's no

Losing It on Channel Ten (I think??) on a Sunday afternoon has Jillian Michaels going into a family's home for a week and setting them straight on food and exercise. I find her a bit over the top at times but still I like the show and it keeps me focused on my own goals.

Lifestyle You is currently showing a Biggest Loser UK show on a Saturday morning.

And this week I caught a show called "Too Fat for 15" about a 'fat camp' in the US. They had given a young girl who was 33 stone from the UK a scholarship to the camp for a year. Over the time she lost 15 stone and was doing great - this was in about 2009. I googled her after the show to see how she was going and the poor thing is now 40 stone. FORTY stone. So sad. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/ne ... at-17.html

any other shows you know of?

oops sorry, cut myself off there!

I ws going to say there's no voting off or any other negative tv drama associated with shows like the Biggest Loser. And it's all good wholesome advice that anyone can do.

Comments at the end of that article about the 40 stone girl suggest she went back to her family and began eating rubbish again. Basically she is in a bad environment. I'd consider it a form of child abuse because she is in the care of people who are pushing her to an early grave.
