OK, so everyone I know says Biggest Loser makes them hungry. Why? There must be some subliminal hidden message. I don’t like the show. So it’s not because one enjoys the show so much she’s eating. Or because it’s so emotional you want to eat (I find most of the emotion more annoying than sad). And I’m flat out irritated at how short-term minded the show is. There is no way anyone can maintain such a strict diet or exercise routine for the long haul. Which means, inevitably, most of the contestants will start to gain weight back.
But that’s neither here nor there. I rarely watch the show because I don’t care for it. And now that I realize it makes me hungry I won’t even stop to watch the cattiness or other drama I so love in other reality TV.
If anyone has psychological insight into why this show makes me (and everyone I know) hungry when in theory you’d think it would make you want to diet and exercise, I’m interested!
