We share the best tips from weight loss programs, along with some tips that have b3een touted but clearly do not work! Make sure you’re doing the right thing on your weight loss program!
UK TV viewers tonight will be able to watch two hours of weight loss programs with Channel 4’s The Fat Fighters at 8pm followed by The Biggest Loser at 9pm—and with this being the post-Christmas season, US and other TV viewers around the world will likely find their own channels to be stuffed like a turkey with fat drippings too. But do these diet shows really help motivate us to lose weight and get healthy?
Yes and no. In some ways these programs offer fantastic motivation for weight loss and health and fitness, but in many other ways they actively put us off from going to the gym and instead leave us dawdling guiltily towards the fridge.
One thing that weight loss TV shows can be very good at, however, is illustrating both positive and negative mentalities and attitudes towards weight loss. TV shows like The Fat Fighters and The Biggest Loser reflect both the positive and negative mentalities we have about our own health and fitness. This means that we can learn a great deal about both the right way to think about weight loss and the wrong way.
The following Top 5 pros and cons of weight loss TV shows will help reveal both the correct and incorrect way to think of weight loss, and in doing so will help guide you towards a healthier, more positive and more motivated outlook on your body and your weight loss and fitness programs.
