I admit that in the past I used to watch it. But nothing about it felt real, I knew that this was an unhealthy way to lose weight. I got some inspiration from the contestants themselves who seemed to really want and need to lose weight but the trainers are made to look like compassionate people and I don't think they are. I hate how awful people are made to look, how the women are forced to wear those bras, how humiliating that must be.
"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
