    Turn It On: Your Reactions to Too Young To Be So Fat

    Small Bites reader Richard had this to say about Corina’s case:

    “[She] was on vacation with her mother and cousin in a casino and [the two] were left alone [to eat lunch] (with the filming crew i guess) while the mom was gambling.

    She eats fried chicken with fried fish and a lot of dessert. I found it disgusting that the crew left the girl eat that [when] they knew she had a morbid weight problem. Just for the show I guess.”

    The scene Richard refers to is particularly memorable because the complexity of factors behind Corina’s obesity are on full display.

    We see the loneliness she experiences, her denial about her weight problem, her self-resignation, and the sad truth that there doesn’t appear to be anyone around to teach and help guide her when it comes to making decisions about what she eats.

    At the same time, Corina seems to only be interested in the quick fix (liposuction) and does not appear very open to “slow and steady” approaches.

    I don’t see anything wrong with the crew not intervening. They are not counselors or dietitians. They are simply there to document Corina’s reality.

      I saw this too and I am glad she wasn’t able to get liposuction. I knew that if she didn’t deal with the reason why she was overweight to begin with, the weight would simply just come right back.
