Well if people choose to be uneducated about weight loss and believe they can eat healthy and exercise a few times and lose 18 pounds a week then I have a hard time believing they were going to be successful long-term in the first place.

So I think TBL is great because A) It puts the spotlight on the issue, B) Shows that large people can work out hard and C) Focuses a lot on the "life change" that weight loss can bring vs. just winning a reality show.

So while it is not an accurate portrayal for "normal" people, I don't think anybody would want to watch a show about me creating a 500 calorie day defecit, going to the gym 4 times, and losing 2-3 pounds per week.
