The Biggest Loser – Does It Work?

I mean the show, of course. In looking at this MSNBC article, I’m shocked to see that nearly all of the top contestants have gained quite a bit of weight back. What I find more interesting is the ones that either answer the question of their current weight with, “I prefer to not use numbers to judge my overall health and weight”  or with, “I’m currently working towards a healthier lifestyle”, both of which means they’re fighting the fat. But to top it off, pun intended, many of them are either motivational speakers or have books about lifestyle – I’m not sure I would buy their advice, would you?

Does this mean that like many other reality shows, it’s just a show and should be enjoyed as just that?
