Why The Biggest Loser Contestants Put The Weight Back On

Here’s a shocking stat for you. In the first ever series of The Biggest Loser (US version). The top 6 contestants lost a combined 276 kilos. Now, that’s an amazing achievement. 13 years later they caught up with those 6 successful contestants and guess what? They all weighed more than they did before the show!

To me, that’s super upsetting because I know how emotionally impactful being overweight can be. I know it cuts down to your soul and has massive repercussions on your self-worth and confidence. These 6 people aren’t alone though, 98% of people who attempt to lose weight will put the weight back on and even more shocking is that 66% of people will end up even heavier.

 

There are a few reasons for this. They found that in the biggest loser contestants that they had actually done damage to their metabolisms. Yes, even 13 years later their metabolisms never went back to normal.

 

What happens is that you put your metabolism under so much stress trying to lose weight as fast as possible that it fights back to protect your body from what it sees as starvation and danger. So, it lowers your metabolic rate, increases hunger levels, and decreases energy levels. This is an absolute recipe for weight gain, and as with the biggest loser contestants, this may last 13 years!!

 

My advice to you is this, the way to achieve a balanced healthy body is by living a balanced healthy life, enjoy food, eat the occasional takeaway, eat a little chocolate every night, be active, smile, enjoy your social life, eat healthily, move, and enjoy the benefits of being healthy and happy.

Drew cuts nothing out. The method gives you that perfect balance of carbs, fat, and sugar. Before I would eat my chicken, rice, and broccoli and feel good, and then eat something bad later and be filled with self-loathing.

On this programme, I can eat goat's cheese carbonara - which I had the other evening - healthy homemade chocolate and pasta, it's all about moderation. I love myself now. I don't pick at things I hate, I eat what I enjoy

My advice to anyone on this program is just to stick with it. Keep going. Don't beat yourself up for a slip-up, pick up and keep going. It gets easier with time. Love yourself always, even when you don't like yourself that much, you can and will do it! Talk to others and don't be afraid to say how you are feeling. Thank you for the opportunity to tell my story.

For about 2 months the DBF program just kept popping up on my news feed. I kept putting off joining until I saw a picture of myself at my cousin's wedding.  This photo finally got me to sign up and I haven't looked back. Its been so much easier then I thought it would be.

I sleep better, my skin is clearer and I've also found an outlet for when I'm anxious or stressed. I can't thank Drew, his team and everyone else that is going through this program as well. There is so much support in this group it makes this journey so much easier.

The great thing is my perception of myself has now changed dramatically. I no longer look at myself with self-loathing when I try on clothes. What was once a chore is now something I really enjoy. I have more confidence to go out and mix with other people and the DBF way has just become a part of my lifestyle now.

For anyone who is doubting themselves I say keep going, what have you got to lose apart from all the things you don't like? What have you got to gain? Everything that you always wanted to be! Just go for it, like me, you will be so glad you did!

My whole way of thinking about food has changed and I now make healthier choices without even realizing it and this is the first time on a diet that I have actually changed my way of thinking. I still have my cheat meal every Saturday night and that will continue as this is my new way of eating.

 

Thank you, Drew and all the team for everything you have done for me on my journey, if it wasn’t for your guidance, support and those coaching calls I don’t think I would have done it.

I am enjoying this journey immensely.Yes, there are hard days, but my achievements are so rewarding. I was an emotional eater, now I’m boosting with energy, feel great in everything I wear and my confidence has got me feeling amazing. No negativity is going to sabotage my journey. I have turned 51 and health wise I was having all sorts of issues. So can’t thank you all enough for teaching me what I know now.
