The Biggest Loser is really the biggest pile of bullshit ever. Sure it’s makes good TV, for some people at least, but how factual do you think it really is? Do they honestly think that the show will inspire people to lose weight? Personally I think that it will scare more people off than anything else.
No obese person that I know could sustain the sort of exercise regime that they portray on the show. Then there is the comment one of the trainers made when one of the contestants spewed up after a session, something along the lines that, “when they spew up after a session you know that you’ve trained them hard enough.” What a load of BS!
I only hope that if you are obese and are tempted to do some over the top exercise regime that you would get a physical first and talk about it with your doctor.
The thing is that obesity is a problem in many countries and I think that the Government should step in and offer some sort of program to help obese people out. Perhaps they could subsidise gyms to take groups of people and train them in such a way that they would lose weight in a healthy more realistic fashion. They could also teach them how to diet properly and offer support in their endeavour to lose weight.
As for funding, I think that the Government should tax all fast food commercials. Hell, if these guys are going to suck people into eating all this unhealthy food via their commercials then they should pay a premium price for their ads. They could also tax the fast food products as well. Sure there may be some disgruntled people, but it is for their own good, and the good of the country as a whole.
