From "It's Time Training"

"Sure the contestants on NBC’s the Biggest Loser have doctor’s, nutritionists and trainers with them on their journey to lose 100lbs – 112 to be exact for this season’s winner – but how did they get on the show in the first place and make it through the daily professional athlete-type training regimen? It comes down to one word, motivation.

It has been reported that the number one thing they are looking for in contestants is people who really want it. At least 100,000 people tried out to be a contestant and without a doubt, the most motivated are going to make the best TV.

You can’t air a TV show for its entire run, if after a week or two, ½ of the contestants just stop trying to create that often elusive caloric deficit we all need: to lose weight. Even with the support team, the kitchen at the biggest loser campus is stocked and contestants have to prepare their own meals.

I enjoy watching this show. I realize that the contestants are monitored by doctors and nutritionists all the time, they have only good food in the kitchen at the ranch, and they have no way to sneak candy or chips onto the ranch. Also, I realize that they exercise for HOURS each day.....that is NOT REAL LIFE. It is a tv show. Granted, the people lose weight and inches, etc., but a lot of them gain it back after returning home and returning to REAL LIFE. Still, it's fun to watch and sometimes the trainers give good tips for those of us at home.

If we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those...prayers were destined to affect...we would be so paralyzed with awe...that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.
