    S07.E08: Maja's Story

    Was it ever said how Christian and Maja supported themselves? Did Maja really think she was fooling Christian when she said she out doing errands when in reality she was eating at 4 to 5 fast food restaurants?

    S13.E08: The Toilet Exploded!

    “Libby: I think that they need the show money to support their current lifestyle, which is gluttonous…They are sacrificing their children’ privacy and dealing with many other impositions for gluttony, in my opinion.” I totally agree
  6. “winsomeone: Zoe needs to take her voice down a few notches…she is overly loud, talks over others, and talks excessively.” “winsomeone: …It is like they are afraid to cross her. She is just as out of control behavior wise as Will, just in different ways.” “BitterApple: I agree. Quite frankly, between the two kids, I prefer Will. He has his bratty moments but Zoe can be very bossy and manipulative. Bill and Jen are always walking on eggshells around her, like they’re scared she’ll withhold affection if they don’t let her have her way.” I totally agree. I much prefer Will over Zoey. I think he has a good heart.

    Baked In Vermont

    I did not catch the whole segment on the cake baked in an oranges, but what did Gesine do with the pulp and juice from the orange? Did she put it in the cake batter?

    S06.E13: Schenee's Story

    “AZChristian: Or maybe Dr. Now is too smart to invest his money in a facility full of potential employees who have demonstrated that the hardest work they want to do is shoveling food into their mouths, with patients who have proven they have no desire to become well enough to be employees.” That is a good point

    S06.E13: Schenee's Story

    “Trees: Every time I watch this show, I think of the business opportunity…A multi-purpose facility in Houston for the morbidly obese! The months Dr. Now keeps somebody in the hospital? This facility would take them for less $ than the hospital. The patients who need a place to stay briefly for their consults? Short-term living. Out-patient, open-to-the-public classes on healthy eating, cooking, food awareness, “chair-yoga”, etc. Food addiction treatment out-patient Long-term living, like a nursing, for the morbidly obese, with transport to doctor appointments. This would allow patients to move their alone instead of with all their families. A ‘go-to” weight loss support “fat farm” camp type of place.” I have often wonder wondered about this myself. Another selling point: the therapist(s) could come to the facility and meet with the patient then there would be no way for the patient to skip out on their appointment. The more mobile patients could also do some type of work at the facility to earn their keep. Maybe because of the initial cost or logistics trying to get the facility off the ground Dr. Now does not want to do this.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    “juliet73: All the shows on HGTV are the same: HH, HHI, HHR, BBH, Lottery Dream Home, Island/Hawaii/Mexico Life. Then add Property Bros and Love It or List It and that seems to be their lineup. All.The.Time. Every.Single.Day. The network needs to bring back the DESIGN shows: Designed to Sell, Decorating Cents, Divine Design, Curb Appeal, etc.” Amen to this!

    History Talk: The Victorian Era

    Didn’t anyone in the court, the Prime Minister, the archbishop or the press object to first cousins marrying and think it was unwise?

    S06.E07: Lisa's Story

    “MillieSparklepants: I’ve tried watching Lisa’s episode three different times and I can’t get through it. My disgust for this woman knows no bounds. She’s dishonest, manipulative, cruel, vindictive and lazy. Chip bags in her fat folds! And Herburt immediately tries to take the blame? Whatever. I about lost my lunch when they implied she was giving him sex in exchange for food. Neither of these people had a shred of self-respect or decency. Danielle needs to take her family and move far, far away from this toxic mess. I don’t think the therapist Lola was fooled at all, I think she was trying to give Lisa a way out and a way to move forward. That’s a common therapy tactic so the patient doesn’t feel cornered and can accept some blame without having to accept ALL the blame. I felt sorry for Lisa’s daughter and her grandchildren, being forced to care for her, especially those teenage boys. (Was there one or two?) They didn’t need to see Grandma’s privates like that.” Very well said! I think Lisa is just evil, mean and gluttonous.

    S06.E08: Robert's Story

    “seniorpatriot: The only thing that irritated me was how that friend who helped them move to Houston, the, just STOOD there and watched Kathryn struggle to pull Rob out of his chair and so forth. I wanted to say to say to him, “Geez be a gentleman, help her.” He did this more than once in the show.” I thought the same thing, the friend just stood there like dead weight.

    S06.E07: Lisa's Story

    ”mellowjoi: I can't imagine that grandson going to school on Monday and his friends asking what did you do over the weekend and him stating, I helped roll my grandmother over so we could change her bedding. If it was illness (cancer, broken bones, etc.), I would be less alarmed with a child being exposed to a nude grandparent/parent but this is a self-inflected illness where the ill person isn't trying to get better. “ Well said!

    S06.E07: Lisa's Story

    “lazylump: Going back to the enabling comments. Wouldn’t it have been interesting to see the therapists and nutritionist work with the enablers, and give them tools to resist Lisa? I’d like to see a story how the enablers can be empowered to stop the 600 lb. person from running their lives. Teach them to walk away, leave her in bed and bring her an apple instead of a pizza (but duck and cover as they run out the bedroom door).” That is an excellent idea.
