I must say I do wonder if with some of these programs, the patients have been picked because of their entertainment value over their suitability for WLS, it’s like they pick some of them from the same place jeremy Kyle gets all his odd people from.

Thankfully not all WLS programs are like this, Fat a Doctors for example but most are getting like it.

You are right about ‘Fat Doctor’ and ‘Fat Surgeons’ being ethically sound. Some of the other programmes about weight loss surgery (and weight loss in general) seem to be 99% entertainment and 1% education. It reminds me of Victorians visiting a ‘freak’ show. Very unsavoury – scuse the pun!
