What is the Biggest Loser?

  • The Biggest Loser is a reality tv show on NBC in which overweight contestants compete to lose the most weight. You can read more about it at the official website http://www.nbc.com/The_Biggest_Loser/

    A forum is available on the official website, but it costs $20 a month to join. We are offering this free forum as an alternative for discussion and optional participation of the plan.

    The contestants on the show follow an extreme diet and exercise program that is not recommended for the general public. They are supervised by a medical staff while they spend several hours each day exercising and following a low calorie diet. If you would like to see the plans they are following, go to http://www.nbc.com/The_Biggest_Loser...ter/downloads/ to view the PDF files (Adobe Acrobat required).

    If you join the official site, however, you will not be allowed to follow the same diet plan. The official site requires a more moderate and safe program that allows up to 2 pounds of weight loss per week. We also encourage a reasonable and safe weight loss goal.

    We'd love to hear your opinions of this program, their weight loss methods, etc.
