New Weight Loss Show Casting Young Overweight Women

A new weight loss show is about emerge, but first, it needs contestants. Will it be you?

The show is looking for fierce and fabulous women between the ages of 21 and 35 who have 50-85 pounds to lose. Some questions they’re asking interested women are:

Do you wish you could lose 50-85 pounds over night?
Do you want to show off your new body?
Were you bullied in high school and want to be thin for your reunion?
Are you tired of not being able to fit into your clothes?
Are you tired of being the overweight girl in your group?

They’re seeking big personalities with great stories. And if you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you have a similar story and think this show would be great for you, contact them today.

Just send an email to with your name, age, city/state of residence, two current photos (one head shot, one full body shot), current height/weight and a bit about yourself. Be sure to include why you need help and the first thing you’d do as a skinnier you.

Casting is nationwide.

Suggest producers check out the following clip:
to observe how to be fat, fabulous and fierce. Dr Pause is all of this and more and would make a much more interesting subject for an inspiring lifestyle show.

I agree with Deborah Kauffmann, the last thing we need is another reality show exploiting body shame and body dissatisfaction with promises that happiness only begins when you are the right size. What about using your power in the media and your access to the air waves to help people live healthier lives that are not associated with an elusive number on a scale and based on self acceptance and self love of the body they have now? Why use revenge and getting even as motivators to address eating patterns and healthy lifestyle approaches? You are contributing to a societal problem and not fixing anyone or anything.

This is sick. Since when is the correct response to bullying to change the victim? And if I'm tired of not fitting into my clothes, wouldn't it make more sense to buy clothes that fit my body? And just exactly, short of liposuction (which is dangerous) do you propose that I lose weight "overnight"?

No thanks, dearie--I'm fierce and fabulous already. Which means I'm happy with my body just as it is.

As a registered dietitian, I am appalled at this. How dare you promise weight loss "overnight" when the research is clear that when people lose weight by dieting, 95 to 98% will regain the weight within 5 years and 33 to 66% will regain to higher weights. Also, not only is dieting itself harmful to health, but the weight cycling that happens as a result has been linked to many serious health issues. If you really want to help people heal from the bullying they experienced as a child, why don't you create a show that helps people (including children) feel good about their natural body size and shape, the bodies they have when they are eating according to their needs (not dieting) and engaging in pleasurable movement (not excessive exercise).
