Alright, I’m just going to lay it out there.  Admit it right here for everyone to see.

I do not like The Biggest Loser.  I like Jillian Michaels.  I like Bob Harper.  I like the notion of people learning to love their bodies and achieve a healthy lifestyle.  But, when all of those things combine in one exploitative show I just feel icky.

I really don’t know what it is about the show, maybe the shameless product placement, or the drastic changes in exercise and lifestyle for people who at their current state could be seriously harmed by strenuous activity, the scare tactics, or maybe it’s the emotional exploitation of people in some of their darkest times…I feel wrong watching it.  I try, I try to like it, every season I give it a shot and eventually just can’t take it anymore.

Obviously, I’m trying to watch it right now and I’m hating it.  I know it’s supposed to be motivational, but I find it kind of depressing.

Having said that, I totally ate dinner while watching.  Another thing about the show…it always makes me hungry!

Having said that, on to my own food intake.  Today I was kind of a lost soul when it came to food.  I wasn’t really thrilled with anything I ate.  Turns out, when I threw out all my party leftovers I didn’t really have much in the way of food to fall back on.  Looks like all the grocery shopping I did last week was party specific.  I’m going to need to hit up the grocery store.
