Being Weight-Obsessed Makes You the Biggest LoserJessica G.10/18/07 10:30amFiled to: Weighty IssuesCelebrity Fit ClubDietingThe Biggest LoserWeight56EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Perennial dieters have a new fixation for their weight neurosis: competing with the contestants on the Biggest Loser. According to a New York Times "Thursday Styles" section "trend" piece, The Biggest Loser is bumming viewers out because they're not losing weight as quickly as the contestants on the show itself. The fans don't seem to take into account that each person on The Biggest Loser is sequestered at weight loss boot camp for the duration of the show, divorced from the temptation of new Doritos flavors (Blazin' Buffalo & Ranch!) and undermining office cookie pushers. Even with a team of weight loss gurus at your disposal, reality-show fit clubs are not all they're cracked up to be. British TV presenter Lowri Turner had a pretty shitty time on ITV's Celebrity Fit Club. In fact, her team captain told her before the final episode, ""If you don't lose any weight this week I'm going to punch you in the face."
