I dont feel like the shows get it right.
I've watched a few episodes of the Biggest Loser and just cringed. Those poor people are going to go home and put the weight right back on. The issue of addiction really isn't addressed. The flip side is going to an OVereaters anonymous meeting and seeing the addiction issues dealt with but the food is still s.a.d., I.e., using artificial sweetners, and generally a lack of nourishing foods that in turn creates severe craving. Poor food addicts, it is a painful thing to deal with.

I wish there was an honest report on food and weight control on tv. It doesn't even matter what kind of diet they use, as long as they emphasize that -
1. there are no miracle fixes
2. its going to be hard work
3. its not a diet, its a lifestyle
This is against the 'want it now, quick fix' mentality of most people, and of reality tv, so its never gonna happen.

Raw is my miracle fix!

And then there are wild card elements like the connection between msg and obesity.
Someone stole our TV a couple years ago, and we never got another one. I definitely don't miss it a bit, although I regularly comment to my husband how nice it is without the TV in the hopes he won't get any hairbrained ideas to "surprise me" with another one.
I hope you'll share all the juicy details if they're worth sharing! :)

haha, well they said they were going to focus on the mental and emotional aspects. Idk if they emphasize any diet, but thats not their goal, their goal (according to the previews) is to figure out what makes them addicted and not able to stick to diets. Thats why I thought it'd be interesting. As much as going raw is a healthy choice even that can be difficult if one has not addressed emotional/mental issues attached to food ;)
And of course they won't adress the physical addictive chemicals that are in food, the excitotoxins, the opiods, the endocrine disrupters, hormone enhancers, steroids, etc. but hey, we know how to fix that...

Eva, No TV, I am impressed!
I do not watch tons of TV but it is addicting for sure.
I think one of my goals is to be without TV.
