Did everyone besides me know that The Biggest Loser contestants only ate around 1,200 calories a day while burning over 6,000? Out of curiosity I goggled it and everything I read said the same thing, 1200. I read a few other things revealed by previous contestants but I really hope they are not true so I won't be posting them.
I am a little sad that the trainers, nutritionist and doctors would allow them to do that. I would imagine it is all for ratings, who would want to watch people lose 2 pounds a week? Either way though my Biggest Loser fan bubble was deflated a little.
I guess I never put much thought into it. I know losing 10 to 32 pounds in a week could not be healthy, but it is really entertaining.
I think about going on TBL a lot, I would not make it a day though. Jillian would start yelling at me, I would cry, she would kick me out of the gym and I would give up and go home. However these contestants lose the weight it is pretty amazing.
