This is just disgusting and wrong on so many levels...🤮 If this series wanted to help people with getting to a healthy weight, couldn't they have hired more dieticians? I suppose that's the nature of reality TV, wanting to push things to the extreme...

Also, Eteri's statement that everyone has identical bodies is just wrong, some people have different medical conditions, metabolisms, etc., that could prevent them from losing as much weight as other people...

Or gaining, if that were needed. As a teenager I used to have well-meaning people ply me with desserts. They assumed I *must* have an eating disorder because I was thin. (Still am.) Finally my also thin mother dug out an old picture I could carry around with me to show them, of my grandmother and her six siblings standing in a row. They looked like a picket fence.

"Jack Sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean...." Sorry, Eteri, everyone decidedly does not have the same body.:frown:

I have nothing to add about this news, but there is a British TV show called Big Boys (that has nothing to do with weight control and in fact is a wonderful sitcom full of humor and heart) whose second season just dropped on Sunday.

Watch Big Boys and boycott Big Girls!

In America, there was a show called "Biggest Loser". I assume it will be similar? My reaction went from :eek2: to :ROFLMAO:. I think that is the point. Heaven help anyone who uses Eteri as a mentor for weight loss. But it might be interesting viewing...

She's not being literal. Of course people have different body types she understands this she wouldn't have the same expectations for Valieva as Petrosian for example.

I read that one of them is 241kg that is not a medical condition, metabolism, that is gluttony and a complete lack of discipline.

You don't need a dietician for that. Just cut the food intake week by week in a gradual process, get them to commit to some mild exercise. Cut the unhealthiest foods out of the diet and replace with nutritious foods. Basically anything is better than what they are doing.

Eteri is the best in the business at creating disciplined females, and Eteri is quite a disciplined woman herself. If you want to achieve anything in life you need discipline.

This show has been also showed here in Finland and Finland has had an own version from format too. It is awful. Far from healthy habits. It is just social p*rnography (I am not right if this word is used in English, it is direct translation) and has nothing to do with healthy weight loss.

You actually do need medical supervision and dietician for weight loss. Losing more than one kilogram per week can lead to your liver malfunctioning and a lot of other problems. Weight loss that is healthy needs to be slow and steady. There are tons of people doing it wrong but considering she is figure skating coach working with children... WOW... just WOW !!!!

I don't believe someone weighing 241kg losing 1kg leads to liver failure. Maybe if you are a healthy weight or have little fluid retention then cut 1kg, but even then I don't believe it in combat sports they lose much, much more weight in a short period (not that I advocate severe weight cuts).

Anything is better than staying 241kg for one more day. There's a lot of fat stored for the body to use as energy if there's some kind of energy deficit.

Another thing is parents of girls (and figure skaters) will be watching this, and many will listen to what she says and try apply it at home...

There is damage beyond just the girls involved in the show, but crazy parents across the country (and many crazy FS parents abroad who want to mimick Tutberidze methods)

Using combat sports athletes as an example of why it's supposedly not unhealthy to rapidly loose weight is kind of weird when studies show the opposite.

I think that it's of utmost importance for all of us to remember that the goal of elite sports is not health, and elite athletes rarely even have any education on what is and what isn't healthy for them. Most end up finding out how much damage they have done to their body only when it's too late.

Sorry, maybe you I didn't write it correctly. Weight cuts are very unhealthy, but my point was someone with already low body fat and in elite condition cutting several kilograms does not kill them. They don't really have 1kg to cut, but still find a way to cut several kg. It is not healthy, it's terrible, but these people aren't dropping dead.

These are people weighing 241kg. They have 180kg to cut, not 1kg like elite athletes. Cutting 10kg will not affect them only help them, take pressure off their heart.

If an elite athlete can survive cutting 3kg when they only have 1kg to spare, the person who cuts 10kg when they have 180kg to spare can survive just fine.

The point I am making is that any weight loss needs to be monitored by specialists and a figure skating coach is just not equipped to provide such advice. You may be surprised at how quick weight loss over a sustained period can create major damage to your organs, even with people who have a lot of weight to lose. It's not a question of beliefs but of science.

I know people hate Eteri but this is too much. We're talking 241kg people. Losing any weight is better than another day putting this strain on their heart.
