Ever watch the TV show, “The Biggest Loser?”
Just in case you haven’t, it’s a show about a “Fat Farm” –
Where seriously overweight and morbidly obese people
go to get serious about getting the weight off.
Well, “The Biggest Loser” has been coming under a lot of fire
And not only for having emotionally abusive trainers
contestants participants with verbal tirades
and questionable exercise practices.
Turns out it’s what most of us who have been in the field
for any length of time knew it was –
According to former season 3 contestant Kai Hibbard, who
lost 118 pounds –
– “Weekly” weigh ins were often longer than a week
– She’d dehydrate before the weigh in
… and went on to say –
“The biggest loser isn’t a weight loss camp that happens
to be filmed for TV, it’s a TV show made to look like a weight
Unfortunately, Hibbard went on to regain 2/3 of the weight that
I’ve had similar experiences training.
If I knew then what I knew now, I’d do things differently.
It also shows you what you really need to focus on if you’re
serious about losing fat and re-capturing your health.
Not a really sexy subject – long term fat loss – long term
But, like Joni Mitchell said, “… you don’t know what you got
’til it’s gone…”
Don’t let it slip away in the first place.
