Biggest LoserI'll start off this post by saying that I'm a big fan of 'The Biggest Loser.' It's inspiring to see overweight people change their lives for the better, and they're darn courageous to do it on national TV. I can barely stand to step on a scale with just myself in the room, so I can't imagine doing it in front of millions of people every week.

And those scales are so huge. There's no running and hiding from 'The Biggest Loser' scales. They might as well shout the numbers in a big thundering voice while they're at it.

Here's the thing, though. While 'The Biggest Loser' is inspiring and offers plenty of health tips for those of us watching from our comfy couches at home, could the show actually be making things harder for us? I say yes, it could. Here are five reasons why.
