The part not enough people mention about the fantasy of instant weight loss is that your reward for it is having to work like hell forever in order to maintain it.
Debby Ryan and Alyssa Milano Are ‘Proud’ of Insatiable’ Amid Fat-Shaming Backlash
Once Patty is allowed to eat non-liquid food again, though, the weight magically stays evaporated, for reasons we never quite find out in at least the first four episodes. Every time Patty is about to eat a donut or something similarly junky, she flashes back to a Fatty Patty horror moment and gets shell-shocked.
Is she eating at other times?
How much? Is she just not hungry anymore? Because I promise you, even having lost more than pounds from my peak weight, I have never gotten any less hungry.

When he says them to Patty, she proceeds to fall in romantic love with him, for reasons that make no sense beyond the fact that he wants to train her in the ways of a beauty queen and nobody has ever been nice to her before. I guess? Or "Fatty Patty" if you're an asshole. The plot: After years of being bullied for her weight, Patty suddenly drops a bunch of pounds, "becomes hot," and is hellbent on getting revenge on anyone who's ever made her feel shitty Sort of.

Oh, and there's also a murder plot, an AA meeting, and an inappropriate crush on a disgraced pageant coach Roberts who's been accused of molesting teens by uncreative town gossipers much to the chagrin of his southern socialite-wannabe wife Milano.

Insatiable, for all of its theatrics, has absolutely no idea.
