Lifetime Series Projects Healthy Image

In general I tend to avoid reality-based programming, but Lifetime Television’s “How to Look Good Naked” is an exception.
Starring fashionista Carson Kressley of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” fame, the new show teaches women to love their bodies without resorting to radical dieting or cosmetic surgery. Although it airs at 9 p.m., I’d certainly let young girls stay up to see this inspirational program.
In the episode I saw, Kressley encourages a young overweight woman to learn to love her body and shake her perception of herself as a loser.
While the title sounds suggestive, and yes, all of these women who appear on the show gain enough self -confidence to pose semi-naked, it’s not salacious at all.
So catch it on Friday night, a time when many overweight young women are unfortunately sitting at home alone out of low self-esteem. Kudos to Lifetime for hosting this new reality series for real women.
