Anyone seen this show? It is on TLC (The Learning Channel) Monday nights around 8 or 9 CST (it seems to shift a bit).
I have been watching it for the past month or so...
I have to say, I don't like it as much as I thought I would. It makes me so sad and shocked at what people feed their kids, I can't even believe it.
Basically, the premise of the show is a nutritionist comes in and looks at how your kids eat, how much they weigh, how much they excercise, how fit they are, etc. and then do a "simulated picture" of what they will look like at age 40 if they keep eating that way - then they reduce their life expectency and tell the parents they will probably only live until age X instead of age X which is standard life excpectancy for their age/gender/race in the US.
Then they do a life-style make-over and tell them what the kids should eat, how much they should excercise, play outside, etc.
It is not vegan, but they do recommend a lot of vegan foods such as tofu scramble (I saw this on 2 episodes - the first group of kids loved it, the second spit it out), salads, soups, etc. They kids cry and scream and gag over having to eat a vegetable. Makes me mad, but by the end (3 weeks later) they are liking it OK.
It just shocks and saddens me...but I guess it is positive they are trying to change.
