Reality Shows About the Obese (Do Your Kids Watch?)
avatar
Haylen_WebMD_Staff posted:
Fitness Expert Pamela Peeke posted a blog about obesity-related shows (e.g. Ruby, Biggest Loser, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, More to Love, Dance Your Ass Off, Making the Curve, One Big Happy Family, etc.), many wonder if it's right to turn being overweight or obese into entertainment.

She asks: Are these shows empowering or exploiting people?

Do you let your kids watch these programs?

Also, if you have obese friends or family members in your life, do you address their weight?
