AntiBiggestLoser.com; New Blog Takes Aim at Worldwide Reality TV Show, "The Biggest Loser"
Date:2/14/2010

me, asserts that healthy lifestyle changes which promote slow, steady weight loss are the only true lifelong weapons that are effective against cyclical obesity. On her blog, Pearl states:
    
“Shows like The Biggest Loser are simply dangerous. Perhaps not so much for the contestants who are on them; they are monitored by more doctors and health care professionals than a sitting president.

“It is the message that The Biggest Loser franchise, which airs in 90 countries and is filmed in 25, gets across to its millions of viewers. Week after week viewers are being given the message that a 15 or 20 pound per week weight loss should be their ultimate goal and that the loss of a pound or two per week is inconsequential. When a contestant on the show has any single digit weight loss, a hush of shame falls over the audience as if it had just been announced that the person had strangled a puppy.”

In addition to being an entrepreneur, Pearl (formerly Michelle Groh-Gordy) is a former award-winning newspaper columnist, having won Society of Professional Journalists awards for writing one of the best features columns in her region of Southern California in 2005 and 2006. Her book titled, “Wake Up! You’re Probably Never Going To Look Like That; How to be Happier, Healthier and Imperfectly Fit” will be available on Amazon.com, through local book retailers and on her Imperfect Fitness web site's store in late spring of 2010.

The title of the first chapter? Jillian Michaels - The Biggest Loser.
