First Lady Michelle Obama: Please Do Not Appear on the Biggest Loser and Instead Engage with the Advocacy Communities Specializing in Weight Stigma

As an eating disorder specialist, I have seen children as young as 8 starving themselves as a direct result of the First Lady's "War" on Obesity. Great idea, but in the schools, something has been terribly lost in translation. Little children driven to exercise, throwing up their food. Punishing exercise and diet competitions (really?) like this frightening reality show...to what end? Please, Mrs. Obama, do not support this show that has only served to help created and support eating disorders.
