The new season of The Biggest Loser starts Sunday, but a new research says people who watch the show learn to fear physical fitness. Survey author Tanya Berry believes “The depictions of exercise on shows like The Biggest Loser are really negative. People are screaming and crying and throwing up, and if you're not a regular exerciser you might think exercise is this horrible experience where you have to push yourself to the extremes and the limits, which is completely wrong. We did find that the people who watched The Biggest Loser had worse attitudes about physical activity than those who watched American Idol.”
The study is published in this month’s edition of the American Journal of Health Behavior.
