  • The Biggest Loser was once a reality TV juggernaut. Debuting in 2004, it pitted overweight people against each other to see who could lose the most weight all in front of the cameras. But after the contestants returned home, nearly all of them regained some if not all of their weight. Here's what happened.
    Fans of The Biggest Loser know that appearing on the show isn't something to go into lightly. That's because the weight loss routine that contestants followed was seriously intense. Once they got to the ranch, participants would workout for up to eight hours a day, according to Kai Hibbard who told the New York Post,
    "There was no easing into it. My feet were bleeding through my shoes for the first three weeks."
    Yet another contestant who originally clocked in at over 300 pounds told the paper that, on her first day, she was put through a routine that involved rowing, body-weight strength work, kettlebells, treadmill, interval training, a StairMaster, and working outside with tires. It was so intense she collapsed. She said,
    "I thought I was going to die. I couldn't take any more."
    …All that, as they were eating less than 1,000 calories per day, according to Hibbard.

    When it started talking about the metabolism😖. Ofcourse, the extreme exercise and limited eating would make anybody lose weight. It's hard to stay in that healthy green zone. It should never go to the yellow or red zones. Eat(healthy), exercise(healthy), self- control, & being mentally(healthy)
    This reminds me of Fluffy and his 1 more piece of cake joke😆
    I'm not in the best place I COULD be, but I'm in a good place. Mentally(not killing myself over if I mess up), having self-control(most of the time), doing exercise(walking), and being conscience of what I eat.
    Again, not killing myself over it. But, I'm conscience about it. 👍🤩👍

    Because they go back to their sedentary life styles and poor food choices.

    The obesity rate in my city is up to 41%. Most never walk because there's nothing to walk to. Most drive their cars.
    "Sorry, too busy right now." ...They were talking to the fast food drive thru speaker.
