|'cause whether it works, or it doesn't|
you're still a loser, right!?
I get it, showing people living their lives, making modest changes to their routines, and seeing small, but incremental changes in their weight, all in a supportive and healthy environment is boring! I wouldn't watch it, and I wouldn't expect anyone else to enjoy it. Still, watching contestants struggle through berating workouts. Watching people cry and be disappointed with what are reasonable changes for average weight loss, because of the specifically high expectations in the challenge. I can't seem to find any model for how these actions could be applied to a normal healthy lifestyle.
I formed this opinion some time ago, and it's been supported by every piece of footage I've ever seen, but I can't say I've really seen it all. So perhaps I'm wrong, and someone gleaned something positive from this show that motivated them to get going. I would appreciate any such rebuttal in the comments.
