Over-eaters use food as an anesthetic to cover their feelings. The problem is admitting they have a problem. There is normal eating and there is over eating, just as there is social drinking and there is alcoholism.
Another problem is that most non- addicts cannot understand addiction, since they have not experienced it.

They're not addicted to food, they're addicted to being lazy and wanting everyone to hand them something. Less than 1% of the people auditioning truly wanted to lose weight and needed help. The rest wanted to win on a show and get free weight loss with minimal personal conviction.

No. The casting calls are different from the show in terms of sponsorship.

If you state something as fact, it is very important that it really be fact and not opinion.

One of my college buddies was on a few years and won second place or something like that.

He has since parlayed that into a motivational speaker position. Great dude too, couldnt imagine it going to anyone better.
