Doing my 30 minute biggest loser workout tonight to burn some extra calories. Should be about 250 like last time.
Had the Dole Endless Summer salad tonight. It was super delicious! Not as good as the Southwest salad, though.
The main point of this article was to discuss a recent discussion on wordpress blogs regarding the new season of the Biggest Loser. Some bloggers are against the show as they believe it promotes bullying and body shaming. They really hated the new spin of adding children into the mx. I expressed my opinion supporting the show and I get berated for it.
I do not see the Biggest Loser as a bullying or body shaming show. Given, I have only seen the first two seasons on Netflix, but I did not see bullying from the trainers. The other contestants perhaps, but that is reality tv. Not excusable, but it is behavior seen often displayed by humans and the bully’s actions were often addressed in the shows.
This show was a good source of inspiration for my own weight loss. Perhaps the show has gone downhill in recent years, but not from what I have seen yet. Hey show proper eating habits. Focus on working out and teamwork through temptation. These have been mandatory skills in my own quest.
In terms of adding children, I am in full support of including them in the program with an increased level of health monitoring for safety. Kids don’t need to be starving themselves to win a game. I think it may be a bit interesting to watch to see how these families deal with the competition. Families learning to be healthy together when they would have otherwise continued on their paths. If I would have continued in my path, I was heading to an early death. Perhaps this could be the wake up call for some?
What do you all think? Agree/disagree?
