Question by Woot!: What is your opinion on weight loss shows?
I really don’t know where I stand with weight loss shows.
On the first hand weight loss shows are designed to promote a healthy lifestyle by showing people who have weight issues, lose weight.
However, I think it has made people more insecure about body image, it some instances making people who do have a weight problem hate the way they look.
I think it is ironic how we encourage people to lose weight in this obesity epidemic whilst saying that we should have a more positive outlook on body image. What is your view?

Most are designed to con people into buying products. When I worked in Europe I never saw one weight loss show or even any products for people to lose weight. Seems to be mostly the USA and Australia for some reason.
