I hate shows or programs like the Biggest Loser. They degrade people for not losing weight. It's bad enough they treat you like shit and talk down to you, but what makes it worse is that they only see the number on the scale. Their program isn't just about eating right and dropping pounds....it includes heavy workouts. Those heavy workouts help reduce body fat sure. But they also increase muscle mass. This means Joe can work his ass off and may lose 3 inches, but he can actually gain weight. They don't take this into account...instead they see the weight gain and treat you like a filthy liar, a cheat, and worthless scum and you lose the game and money. All because you did your best. In fact you did so much better than the others that you lose! WTH!?
It's crap. The show is crap and their system is crap. No matter how much fat you lose, if you gain a pound of muscle they see it as a pound not lost. That's why I don't watch such programs....they piss me off and they should piss you and the contestants off too. It shouldn't be about the number on the scale! It should be about who got the healthiest and reduced their fat % the most.
