What Do You Eat When You Watch “The Biggest Loser”?

The Biggest LoserI used to save episodes of The Biggest Loser until the next morning and watch them while walking/jogging on the treadmill. I found it so inspiring to see all those people working out. This year, however, I decided not to watch after seeing a preview clip of Jillian just screaming at a contestant.

I couldn’t watch it anymore. I love Jillian, but I do not want to watch people being screamed at. She literally screamed,

“The only way you’re coming off this treadmill is if you DIE on it! Unless you faint, puke or DIE, keep walking!!”

It’s just not entertainment and it’s certainly not inspiring. A day after The Biggest Loser premiere episode, however, I’m laughing and it’s all because of Ernie at Littlest, Yellowest, Differentest:

Things People Eat While Watching “The Biggest Loser,” According to Twitter:

Every one of those people seem to feel guilty for eating while watching The Biggest Loser. Maybe watching that TV show isn’t all that good for all of us. Whenever Jillian screams at an overweight contestant telling him that he is going to stay on that treadmill until she tells him to get off or until he dies, maybe we feel like we deserve that sort of abuse. Eating while watching the show just makes it more deserved.

Me? I’m skipping it this year… or at least I’m not watching for as long as I can.

    I agree that i thought it was really above and beyond her motivating people. I was also upset to see her try to stand on someone when doing a wall sit and they would just collapse every time. Good grief these people had only just begun to exercise!!

    Wow that is crazy she said that! She is hot though. Guess she just gets a bit carried away w/ herself.
