A pissed off fat kid threw food at Jillian Michaels when she tried to take away his favorite snack! I can't say I blame him.
This week's episode of "Losing It With Jillian" on NBC saw the hard core trainer traveling to Arizona to work with an overweight Native American Family.
According toÂ TVSquad.com, one of the customs of the Yavapai-Apache Nation tribe is to eat a "fry bread," a kind of dough that is deep-fried in lard.
Jillian says,Â "Looking around, everybody's obese." And she obviously thinks the bread isn't helping.
Then Jillian grabbed some of the fry bread and attempted to through it away, but a couple kids were not about to tolerate what they saw as the senseless destruction of their yummy bread.
At one point, one of the kids who still had some bread left got so upset that he threw it in her face and said, "You're an idiot."Â
"Well, maybe you'll live longer, kid," Jillian responded.Â
Frankly, I can appreciate what Jillian is trying to do with these families and with the people she works with on "The Biggest Loser," but the reality is, stealing kids favorite food and making them watch while you throw it in the trash isn't necessarily the best way to encourage kids to change their eating habits. You probably won't have much success with that method.
Children really need to be shown through example, encouraged, and not be made to feel bad for the choices they've been making.
No wonder the kid threw the bread at Jillian. I probably would have too.
