Biggest Loser Weight Loss

Well there is no need to debate the fact that reality television has peaked our curiosity as to what is real in life and what is not. Do you ever find yourself asking, “Was that set up?” “There is no way that could really happen!” Well the fact is reality television isn’t reality, even when it comes to the most believable life changing examples. Believe me, I know about it first hand. (I will save those stories for another time). The truth is that ratings pay the bills and if it’s at the expense of your health, well so be it!


In my eyes one of the most controversial shows on network television today is The Biggest Loser. “Oh I know, you love it, it’s just so amazing how they loose 10, 15, or even 20 lbs. in just one week.” Then you find yourself saying, wow if they can do it so can I! Then two weeks later you become bitter and frustrated with your workouts and results and find yourself in the same old rut……… Sound familiar? Well let me tell you that you are just one of millions that watch that show every week and get on the treadmill and say “I can too.” “Well, let me tell you something else, no you can’t.” Why? “Because it’s not real!” 


Oh yes, these people you watch, they are going through a major transformation, and most of them drastically need it. The problem is it’s not happening in the right manner. No one should loose twenty pounds in one week, and it’s wrong that anyone would let you think it’s even possible. I have never seen done, nor should anyone ever try! The fact is everything looks like a week to you because the show only comes on once a week. Those results you see may have happened in two weeks or three or even less than a week. The fact is that it really doesn’t matter to the producers, just as long as you watch, and just as long as people keep saying to themselves “if they can do it, so can I”.


Let me conclude with this, proper weight loss should happen at no more than 2.5 lbs lost per week. Yes there are times it can be more, but sustained weight loss can’t occur when massive weight (10-20lbs) is lost weekly. Your metabolism has to increase along with the weight loss, if that does not occur, which is generally the case with massive weekly weight loss, there is strong potential the weight will be put back on. Please click on the link below and check out how one former contestant feels about the dangers associated with the “Biggest Loser”.
