Get ready to be disturbed.
21 February 2019 | by landfatherSee all my reviews

This show serves a great purpose in my opinion. It really lets people know what the consequences of becoming morbidly obese can be, and it isn't pretty. Plus, I find that since I've been watching it, it actually makes me take a good look at my diet and it scares the tar out of me. Time to start munching on carrots and celery instead of chips and candy. The success stories make you feel very happy for the ones who come through with flying colors, and the failures can actually make you want to shake your head and say "Dude, what were you thinking?" I like how it makes you think about consequences, the importance of taking care of ones body, and how brave the people are who are on the show. They're baring all for everyone to see and I can only imagine how difficult and embarrassing that is. Dr. "Now" holds no punches and tells it like it is, and you can tell it isn't easy for the people to hear. I like this show, even though it can be very disturbing at times.
