    I made a new thread just to get everyone's attention on one particular episode.

    It is of this girl named charlene and is of Indian descent. If you watch the video at 3:32 & at 4:55, where she is being measured and weighed in, it is claimed that she is only 71 Pounds!!!!! I mean at 5'2'' and 71 pounds, you'd think you'll be looking at a skeleton, but actually quiet the contrary. She barely have any bones sticking out.

    Could this be due to her already small frame?

    I mean 71 pounds?!!? That is just way too low and she doesn't even look it.

    What do you girls think?

    Probably due to her small frame and short height. I'm 5'6 and if I was 71 pounds, of course, I would look very sickly...but I actually look to be her size around 108 pounds (5'6)..Just like when Nicole richie became 80lbs, she didn't really look sickly thin like some people were making her out to be and I believe it's because of her (Nicole Richie) height, which is aroud 5'2--but the girl in the youtube video definitely doesn't look too thin at all.

    According the the conversion calculator on my Mac 5 stone 13lb would be 83lb. It seems like a more likely number given how she looks.

    haha! how embarrassing. I automatically went to the conversion tools on google and actually used three of them and all came the same results of 71??!!?!.

    Just after your response, i decided to calculate it in my head and came to be 83!! :oops:

    Thanks for the correction :)

    Anyways, that makes way more sense. 71 is just extreme!

    Ughh the 'supersize' gets SWEAT RASHES UNDER HER BOOBS?!?!? :superpuke:

    Edit: the superskinny has a BMI of 15.3 yet doesn't look that skinny. Guess that's why you gotta work out...

    I think the Indian girl is just lovely! As for the Supersizer... the sausages on her plate looked very similar to her chubby fingers ;) Very gross!!

    Leave it to google! ;)
    This is the first episode I've ever watching and I can see why people are addicted. Charlene seems like a good example of a skinny who could benefit from exercise.

    I remember watching this and being wowed by her lovely frame, but
    then also being confused as to why she went on the program - she
    clearly likes dressing like a skinny and the fact that she didn't really
    want to take part in the swap and pouted so often made her come across
    really badly, I felt.

    Why go on such a show in the first place, then?:rolleyes:

    ok I watched until she wiped off the sweat rashes (ok ew) and then I just skipped to to see the superskinny. I almost gagged when she said "It's quantity, not quality - so more, is better". did you guys see the fat on the bacon on the plate with the sausages? ewewew. next time I feel like I need to binge I'll just watch the first 30 seconds of this and my appetite will be completely gone out of pure disgust. ok I'm a horrible person but seriously. ew.

    Does she need to tone up? (Charlene)

  15. She's 83 pounds at 5'2... Okay that's plenty thin, I wouldn't suggest she lose any more weight.

    But, 1400 calories is the correct calorie amount for a 4-6 year old girl? That's crap! 2000 a day? If I ate that much at 5'6 I'd weigh 180bls, trust me.

    I know what you mean. The way she dressed looked like she didn't want to gain weight. Kind of suspicious!
    If you notice too, she showed pictures of her when she was a couple years younger, and she was kind of chubby (Probably even more than me!) and then all of the sudden she dropped so much weight (Great thinspiration!!).

    She claims to be so scared of feeling "full" and having her stomech sticking out, which I think it interprets as she just doesn't want to get fat and doesn't want to gain weight really. I am sure she lost that weight on purpose and based on how she presented herself, seemed like someone kind of compelled her to do the show.

    The people on the show, do they get paid?

    Honestly, I think her body looks fine the way it is.

    But instead of having her gain weight, she should just tone up to look more fit, better-postured & healthy.

    My thoughts exactly. She has the attitude of a skinny- she's obviously very conscious of how much and what she's eating.

    i have never seen an episode where the supersize was so upbeat about being fat and eating so much fatty foods. also, so strange that charlene had high cholesterol.

    Some of these daily intakes scare me. 2000 calories per day?! I mean, I ate like that and I gained 15lbs...
