America loves Weight loss shows (hence, the popularity of the Biggest Loser). Now, a new type of weight loss show has been introduced called “I Want To Save Your Life.” This health and nutrition expert plays a “Diet Detective,” who uncovers the real reasons why his subjects are over weight.
Watch this clip below, I think this type of teaching could actually change the way people look at food.
I Want to Save Your Lifeis a WE tv original series about undercover health interventions staged by Charles Stuart Platkin, also known as the Diet Detective. Charles’s unique approach encourages men and women from all walks of life not only to change their eating habits but also to explore the underlying problems or emotional conflicts in their lives that may be causing them to overeat. Once overweight himself, Charles has dedicated himself to helping others and is passionate about that mission.
takes cameras into an unsuspecting subject’s life for several days to investigate his or her food intake, exercise (or lack thereof), and unhealthy habits — with the goal of uncovering the behaviors that have led to that person’s weight problem. After he intervenes with these individuals (including a former marketing executive turned stay-at-home mom, an aspiring young filmmaker, and at times, couples) with an offer to save their lives, Charles goes on to teach them how to eat better and get moving so they’ll enjoy long-term weight loss, improved health, and renewed confidence. Charles then checks in after several months to see how each person is getting along.
Although I love my favorite program “The Biggest Loser,” not everyone responds well to that show. Some think that it is more about the competition then losing weight. While others don’t believe that there is enough education packed into the hour show. Since this program sheds a different light on changing your life maybe it will strike a chord with views. 90 % of health, fitness, and nutrition is education make sure you are getting your daily dose.
