General chatter - Anyone watching Addicted to Food on OWN?

I watched the first two episodes Tuesday and felt like bawling thru most of it. I think it's going to be really interesting as they start getting deeper into their issues.

I wouldn't mind doing a program like this but I couldn't put up with the going thru my stuff (I'm a little OCD about my stuff and my privacy) and the removal of things that are important to me, like the guy's guitar. I get it that she saw it as a distraction but still. Then again she did say addicts have control issues right :D.

I see crying ahead on my part but I'll continue to watch.

I have gone through an eating disorder program as an outpatient, many years ago. Watching this made me grateful that I'm not like that any more. Doesn't mean I'm 100% cured, just that there are so many things I don't do any more.

I also like to watch Heavy and Too Fat for 15. I refuse to watch Biggest Loser.

Yes I saw it the other night and it was very interesting. I really liked the main counselor. A lot of what she said made good sense and she could really pick up on the anxiety of the patients.

Love love this show! I think it's a first show where they put overeaters and bulimics/anorecsics together. It's a great concept and I really like the leading therapist.

Biggest Loser is a joke compared to this show which taps into the core reason of why people are addicted to food vs dropping crazy weight week after week.

If you haven't watched it yet, you MUST ;-)

It's a good show...I like that the treatment center puts everyone together regardless of their issue because everyone needs to get to the root of their problems. It's really interesting to see people with bulimia, anorexia, compulsive overeating, and binging all sitting and discussing things together.

Just watched it. Are there only these two episodes out yet? :(
It was very sad. It makes me realize how some people struggle with food.
I like food too much myself (obviously), but not like that.
