The Biggest Losers on TV

I try to avoid being too controversial on my blog, but today I just had to link to this fantastic blog post that uncovers some of the horrifying truths about the terrible show The Biggest Loser and why we should discourage people from following the dangerous weight loss techniques put forth by this show and endorsed by our government and its representatives.

There's nothing entertaining, smart, imformative or healthy about The Biggest Loser and the behaviors it encourages. The saddest part is we're being led to believe the contestants should be congratuled for endangering their health in the fruitless pursuit of the so called 'perfect' body weight or shape. Shame on The Biggest Loser, its producers, contestants and advocates for doing more to damage the health of the American people than to preserve it.
