Well, I think we are done done done with this show. It was appealing at first for the simple reason that it was inspiring to see such morbidly obese people turn their lives around. But the emphasis on calorie counting drives me insane. At one point this week, the trainer Jillian said to someone "Don't worry about the sugar, worry about the calories!" This is the polar opposite of how I see things.
Then the contestants were 'forced' to eat every meal at a restaurant for a week. Oh woe is us! Good lord, this would be fantastic. They are the paying customers and can order whatever they want per their specifications. It would be great to take a week off of cooking. Not that I mind it, but it would free up gobs of time with shopping, prep, and cleanup.
Another contestant was in a state of panic since she couldn't go to the gym on doctor's orders. She lost 4lb without 1 step on the treadmill. Gee, think nutrition may have something to do with that?
Finally, the no/low fat theme is wearing thin. Banishing things like olive oil and cheese.
I think we'll just start tuning in for the last 15 minutes to see the weight loss.
