A little confession:

I don't often get a chance to watch the Biggest Loser on TV -- because it's 2 long, drawn out hours. But I caught it tonight. And tonight, like almost every other night that I've watched an episode, I got hungry. I feel completely guilty about it. I start craving candy, sweets, chocolate, ice creams -- you name it. Tonight I was better at controlling the cravings over other nights. I can honestly say that it only caused me to binge on herbal tea and 2 or 3 Tootsie Rolls. But still...

What is it about this show that makes me crave food instead of motivates me to want to work out? Maybe I'm empathizing with all the pain and hunger of the competitors?

    I try and watch it, but during commercials do sit up or crunches or leg lifts -- something to show that I'm watching and working out. Last year though, I would totally be eating ice cream or something and feel horrible about it.

Try out something like that to see if it helps with the cravings.

    Ironic that they play food commericals in a weight loss show. When my neice was little she use to repeat the toy commericals word for word. We asked if she was influenced by TV advertising and she said no. Sometimes a cmmerical can be a trigger for me especially if it involves coffee!

    There are commercials on during the show and I didn't pay attention to how many involved food -- but I'm almost wondering if it wasn't some trickery to that. Or perhaps subliminal messaging :P

    Maybe it's just watching TV. I don't get much down with the TV on. I've started listening to the radio again instead. We don't get the biggest loser here, maybe it's a good thing.

    I've never watched it. This makes me not want to watch it. I don't need any excuses to snack at night.
