One Big Happy Family: Watch this, then let's talk
I'm writing my "Eat, Drink and Be Healthy" column for January 21 about the TLC reality show "One Big Happy Family," which documents the Cole family's efforts to lose weight. Each of the four Coles (two adults, two teens) weighs more than 300 pounds. The final two episodes of the first, six-part season air tonight, starting at 10 p.m. Here's a clip that gives a glimpse of what the Cole family's up to tonight:
I want to know what you think of the show. Some bloggers have questioned whether it's degrading and exploitive. But it can be argued that the Coles entered the experience willingly and that their good humor carries the day. I worry that the family's not getting adequate guidance in its effort to eat more healthfully and become more fit.
If you're so inclined, please watch the show tonight. Then come back to the comments section of this blog and share your thoughts.
