The Biggest Loser

I have been watching The Biggest Loser for several seasons now.  It is an inspirational show as well as entertaining.  After many seasons it seems like you can pick out those contestants who will make life long changes in their food and exercise choices and become healthy, and others who will eventually gain it all back.  Those that are in it for a game, or to “win” seem to be the people who gain it back.  Those contestants on the Biggest Loser that don’t really get in touch with the “why” they got grossly overweight, mobidly overweight, seem to be the game players and the ones who may win, but are the true losers.  It’s a shame.  The food is the symptom of a deeper problem.  Fix the problem, not the symptom.
