Obesity in America is an epidemic. One in twenty-five children is obese. We’re feeding our kids, high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils. Both chemicals are designed to give food a shelf life of six years – imagine what it’s doing to your insides. Not that I don’t enjoy the occasional coke and large package of Twizzlers while I’m watching a movie. But the fact is, good nutrition is something that has to be taught, and I think NBC feels they’re the ones to give us the lesson. Wasting no time, they’re capitalizing on this rapidly growing concern by picking up a Biggest Loser spinoff starring trainer Jillian Michaels. The network has ordered eight episodes of Losing It with Jillian Michaels, produced by Reveille and Empowered Media. The premise of the show is that Michaels will move in with families (with children ages nine and up) to change their diet and exercise habits.
