At least one contestant of "The Biggest Loser" is feeling quite small and shamed after her appearance on the long running NBC reality TV show.
Kai Hibbard called "The Biggest Loser" a "fat shaming disaster" in reference to how the show made her and other contestants feel, ironically like losers. Hibbard goes on to say that "The Biggest Loser" takes pride in pointing out how fat the contestants are and no longer will them to success but rather point fingers at them and highlight their negative attributes more so than how to achieve a healthier outlook overall.
Trainers, according to Hibbard, didn't pay attention to doctors who monitored the contestants and continually reminded those on the show just how "fat" they are. Hibbard also felt compelled to mention that she wasn't allowed to call home for more than a few minutes and very infrequently at that.
By the way, Hibbard lost 121 pounds while she was on the show.
The weight loss success experienced by Hibbard makes her comments come across as being somewhat hollow in nature. Some who struggle with weight and finding a healthy balance with how they eat, manage stress and live would welcome the opportunity to be sequestered on a fitness ranch and work with trainers that set goals and hold them accountable, with the latter being one of the keys to dropping pounds.
