I watch every tv show about eating behaviors... Lately my favorite one is “What is eating you?”
Now I only have to find out the schedule for “Heavy”. Thank you for posting...

Oh wow Quailing! That's really cool! I'm really glad you felt comfortable sharing that with us. I hope you flit around the forums a bit and find a nitch here. Welcome! My personal favorite hangout is the 100 pound club. You should check it out.

I'm guessing there will be little comparison between this and BL. I like BL but it's set up for drama and it takes place in an artificial environment. You can't NOT lose weight on TBL. With a show like Heavy, it seems to me there will be the ever present possibility that the person documented will not be successful.

My only hope is that this show breaks down stereo types rather than make them stronger. One thing I HATE to see in shows I've seen in the past is the camera in the person's face while they eat, focusing on the breathing, if I described that right. The microphone picks up way more obnoxious sounds than you would ever hear sitting right next to the person at the dinner table. That's a big pet peeve of mine. It's makes the eating disgusting instead of a natural and necessary part of life.

Thank you for this information on the new show. And thanks to Quailing for posting about his/her involvement.

I really try to watch Intervention as often as I can, but Hoarders is just a little too painful for me to watch.

That being said, I did find the Intervention that was focused on an eating addiction to be especially painful. There was a young man who was the subject and his mother was asking him to make cupcakes with her. I had to turn the channel.

Hoping that "Heavy" will be something I can learn from.

please post when this is on, I'd love to see you. I don't watch TBL but I did order their cook book because the recipes in there weren't all the way down my arm. I can't stand a recipe with 20 items in it. I don't want to live in the kitchen. Please email me when it's on in case I don't catch the previews. how about you show us you now so I can know who to look for?

I want to watch this if there is going to be real stories. I love knowing about how people deal with the struggles. I go to a support group that has helped me with the everyday reality struggles.

I only hope that there is no "edutainment" factors like what is on the biggest loser: trainers telling clients that they need to lose more that 2 pounds a week, unrealistic lifestyle changes (living on a ranch, or eating only lettuce or taking a daylong bootcamp exercise session).

I too have a very haded impression of TBL....particularly since being invovled with a reality show of sorts, I now know what really happens behind the scenes. lol
Awesome! Congratulations, I wish you nothing but continued success!

I too saw the promotion for the new show and I will defintiely be recording it!

Heavy will showcase 10 people working hard, suffering, hurting and baring it all on camera for the world to see how it REALLY works in life when youre battling your own body and mind.
