Re: Intervention

Dr Drew is a celebrity addiction specialist. He has a couple shows on VH1: Sober House and Celebrity Rehab. The show is interesting, but I can't think of any really huge celebs unless you count D-listers like Bruce Villanch. VH1weight loss shows are typically drama filled weight loss failures. Celebrity Fit Club usually have 2-3 people who actually lose weight and the rest whine, complain, and cheat on their diets on camera. As far as I know there's been only one A&E Intervention episode on eating: Intervention- Josh What I'd love to see is an american adaptation of a BBC show called "You Are What You Eat". The show's diet doc was exposed as an un-credentialed product hawker, but It would be interesting to see the home interventions done by someone like Dr Oz. you are what you eat

Re: Intervention

That's true - you could always buy some meaningless certificate like Meme Roth  did.  Most of those so called TV  docs have no  qualifications anyway -  Dr Phil lost his licence long before he joined Team Oprah!

Re: Intervention

You definitely have a point there. She  seems to go off on a lot of directions that don't really address the issue: Her boycott of Redbook for that "love your body" thing ( Hmm, I thought if you love something you'd take care of it ) . Santa Claus. Plus size Clothing ( I couldn't figure  that  one out - are we supposed to sew our own or what? )

Dr Phil was a qualified, licensed clinical psychologist before he became famous. While he let his licence lapse, he still has his qualifications. I used to watch his "Ultimate Weightloss Challenge" in which he did interventions. He'd ask people what the payoff was in being overweight. I remember one guy who played football in college - I don't know enough about American football to remember the position he played, but it was one in which it was valuable to be built like a tank. Being so big made the guy feel manly, and it became part of his self-image. Dr Phil said, "But you don't play football now, do you? So you don't need that extra weight, do you?"

I'm not uncritical of Dr Phil, but I found that show very interesting. Until they were challenged, the people didn't understand why they found it difficult to lose weight.
