Hey there...and welcome back, by the way.

We had a great thread/discussion on this a month or so ago.

http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/weight-loss-support/130023-question-about-biggest-loser-how-they-doing.html

I'm torn on whether the show ultimately does more good or more bad for weight loss among viewers. On the one hand, I know that it absolutely inspires people to make efforts toward losing weight, and the emphasis on exercise and even the nutritional stuff they put in is great for that. On the other, I've seen so many people get discouraged when they only put up 2 lbs a week, since on TBL they lose soo much more.

Double-edged for sure.
