didn't that Biggest Loser show end up doing a lot of harm to its contestants?

Jillian has her own personal feelings and relationship with weight and how she became famous that she would have a hard time with the body positivity movement

anyway, anyone who uses the words "politically correct" unironically is a moron

people died because of the show. people ended up with eating disorders and fucked their health for years. you had doctors who had a shit fit about it and kept warning that people would die, and they did.

bb, i straight up want to punch her in the mouth.

i gotta go find the article that listed everyone whose died. you've had a couple heart attacks. it's after the show deaths which they deflect. but i've seen doctors who've gone, you can't lose that much weight that fast and not tax a heart. it's too extreme. the problem is the guy who died earlier this year from leukemia and no i'm not saying the show gave him cancer, but thanks to googles shitty algorithm he's all that pops up for pages.

and i know Kai has talked about it all before on her blog. idk if it's still around.

and a few contestants have told how they were given diet pills and all kinds of crap. lemme go dig.

It's insane to me that people think fat people existing and not hating themselves means glamourizing obesity. And it's pretty rich that she thinks she has any room to talk considering she's (was?) part of a show that was about anything but health.

no one is glorifying obesity. healthy people come in all shapes and sizes.
