    Am I the only one who was pissed off at that scene where the nutritionist brought over a week's worth of junk food and threw it in the garbage? There's people out there who have to struggle just to make enough money to eat. I'm all for kids losing weight, but haven't they ever heard of a soup kitchen? They could have donated all that food instead of trashing it.

    I agree that it was a waste, but since that type of food is really bad for you, it may have been better to dump it.

    Better to dump it? you're saying it's better to eat nothing than eat junk food? I doubt you would say that if you were starving.

    Geez, I think you're overreating a little bit there. They are making a TV show. They aren't going to drive some junk food they bought to make a point to some kid to a food bank.

    No, it's not. That's called anorexia. You're saying it's better being anorexic than being overweight? That's completely ridiculous.

    It is not better if it made you sick and you tossed your cookies after you ate. You would be worse off.

    They should pack up the foodand ship it to North Korea - those people are so hard up for food they sometimes eat the bark off trees and even human flesh (they call it "special meat"). When you go into North Koreas cities there are no birds or small animals around either - theyve been eaten.

    They are trying to get rid of childhood obesity. If anything, Shaq should fly around to food banks for poor people and TAKE THE FOOD AWAY! The last thing we need is people getting free food. Then they will get truly bloated. But if shaq helps out and stops this senseless eating in the inner cities, they will have him to thank.
