The idea of the show is good, but I think it is difficult to top Biiggest Loser, and things got a little weird with some of the trainers. The one trainer made me feel more like she was a psychic than a personal trainer. I think Shaun T is awesome. My gut feeling is this show won't run long unless they change it up. I think that I definitely enjoy watching Extreme Weightloss Makeover to this new program.

I only saw a little bit of this show. I have a bunch of episodes recorded. I'm not crazy about it. I like the biggest loser and extreme weight loss so much better.

I agree its more true to life the amount of weight being lost seems more true than the big numbers they do on the biggest loser

Random question, but does anyone recognize or know what sports bras the women are wearing on My Diet Is Better Than Your Diet?

I enjoy this show very much. I find the different approaches by the "experts" to be interesting. It's just reality TV - I don't expect it to be perfect. It's not as big a "production" as Biggest Loser, which is fine by me. It's more realistic, in my opinion.

I stopped watching Biggest Loser during the "Conda" season. I don't want overwrought reality drama, back-stabbing and nastiness. What I like about My Diet is Better Than Yours is that even though people are competing, everyone seems really supportive. I don't think Shaun T is a natural television show host but he is growing on me, due to his genuine concern for people and how he tries to encourage everyone.

The Biggest Loser can suffer from being too focused on games instead of weight loss. I also didn't like the replacement for Jillian. But I have been thinking of trying it again - maybe the producers learned their lesson after Conda.

They are trying too hard to get 'drama'. I get it that they had a limited pool of candidates than a show like BL where they get them from all over the country. This is lower budget and more realistic as they all live at home and continue in regular activities. They have to live near enough to the filming location, and they didn't get the mix of personalities that they may have wanted. Also the dieters do not live together and develop alliances and competitiveness that makes for 'reality tv'. Hence, editing for drama.

For me, last night's show was better than last week. I'm going to try to hang in there and see where it goes.

I wasn't crazy about this show. I want to know the diet developers credentials. Some of the diets seemed pretty stupid to me.

I'm watching the show just to see all the different types of diets that are out there and see the dynamics of them.

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

I felt like I was watching a lot of the personal trainers. I like listening to the contestents about what they are going through. I am going to continue to watch, but I do like The Biggest Loser and Extreme Weight Loss Makeover so much better.

I DVR My Diet is Better Than Yours last night. Watching it now. I'm sorry but some of these experts need their heads checked. Their personalities are a little too much for me. Don't get me wrong their diets sound good but I just don't care for the experts.

I rode my recumbent bike, magnetic exerciser, and walked yesterday. I was super charged from the excitement. Tonight, I have a headache. Serves me right. I am excited for Thursday too, but I am not doing to get too crazy with the exercise.

It's on ABC and it starts Jan 7th. I will watch the first couple of episodes to see what it's about.

I am just wondering if any of you will be watching, "My Diet Is Better Than Yours." I was worried the Biggest Loser was airing on the same night, but I see it is on Monday. I must say I plan to watch both. I need a lot of motivation in the coming weeks and exercising while these shows are airing will do me a lot of good.
