Tune in today, March 21 to the Tyra show for a discussion on weight discrimination. Tyra’s guests talk about the acceptance of weight discrimination, which seems to be wide spread. The panel shares their opinions about people who are overweight and obese.
Weight discrimination is also known as sizeism or weightism. Common weight-based stereotypes are that the overweight are lazy, lack self-discipline and have poor willpower. These stereotypes can lead to deeper assumptions about a person’s intelligence or character, leading to difficulties both professionally and personally.

Swallowing tapeworms to lose weight may seem too out there to believe that anyone actually does it. Two women who are willing to try it will be guests on the Tyra Show tomorrow. They and Tyra will be shown the ropes of the tapeworm diet by a specialist who sells the intestinal parasites over the internet. You’ll see how big tapeworms can really get inside your body, plus learn about the potentially fatal risks. (more…)
There is a scale out there for everyone. At DietsInReview.com, we thought we had seen it all, with scales that upload your weight online, to even a chair that doubles as a scale. Turns out we haven’t seen it all. The Quantam Scale, which was featured on The Tyra Banks Show and The Bonnie Hunt Show, does not show you your weight. Yes, you read that correctly; it will never show you your actual weight.
When stepping on the scale, it will simply show you how much you have lost or gained, but not those three dreaded numbers.

Last year, Tyra Banks publicly discussed how she got her shape into shape with the help of her own nutritionist, Heather Bauer, RD, author of The Wall Street Diet.

Tune in, this Monday, November 9 to The Tyra Show to learn about the Tapeworm Diet, one of the most repulsive and extreme diets that have women risking their digestive systems just to be skinny.
The Tapeworm Diet is truly only for those with tough, iron-clad stomachs: Swallow a parasite that eats up everything you consume. As you eat, rather than your food being absorbed and metabolized by your body, the tapeworm devours everything from your breakfast cereal to your afternoon bag of chips, leaving you with a loss of appetite, nausea, diarrhea and of course, weight loss.
