FAVE! Weight loss TV show

Obesity levels worldwide have more than doubled in the last 20 or so years claiming people from different walks of life. The so called epidemic is reaching people not only through extreme food intake but also through television shows around the world. There seem to be an intense fascination on the lifestyle of these people that is why a number of shows regarding obesity and weight loss is gaining a lot of popularity and high ratings. The show’s primary goal is for the overweight contestants to gradually lose weight and hand in hand to maintain a healthy lifestyle outside of the television series. I am easily drawn to these types of shows because I myself am very critical about my weight too.

Here is my list

Supersize vs. Superskinny

What I like about this show is how they tackle both the issue of obese and undernourished people. What they primarily do is to make these two very different people face their food issue by doing a meal reversal where they’ll have a firsthand experience of how unusual their diet is. Another nice thing about this show is that they let these contestants talk about the emotion that is behind their eating habit. Check out the video!

Freaky Eaters

You may think that this is not primarily a television series about being fat but if you watch the show further on you’ll realize that this is in fact a vital representation of an unhealthy lifestyle that will in the future might produce an overweight individual. With Freaky Eaters the health expert really exert an effort to present a nutritional wakeup call of some sort where they will show the amount of unhealthy food that these individual eats in a span of one year. The health experts are also great in re-introducing veggies and fruits into a very unusual and unhealthy diet. Check out the video!

Dance your ass off

This fun dance show is great because it also inspire overweight people to lose weight by dancing. Here the contestants basically battle it out to lose weight through high energy dancing with a partner. What I like about this show is how they are able to present these people as active talented individual able to perform really well despite their issues of weight.

The Biggest Loser

The Biggest Loser is one of the most popular television series out there that tackles weight problem. The Biggest Loser is such an inspiring show that is why a lot of people get hooked to it. The level of dedication that these contestants give to each and every challenge is so great and the result is absolutely drastic to say the least.
