Unless you tune out all media, it was hard to escape the buzz over this week’s BL winner. Rachel, 5’5, went from 260 lbs to 105 lbs in the course of the 8 months. Was The Biggest Loser winner too thin? I am not here to judge if what she did was unhealthy or not. I have read reports that she ate 1,600 calories a day and worked out up to four times each day, but who knows… I wasn’t with her 24/7 so who am I to judge.
After having worked with thousands of clients personally and helping launch Killer Kurves, a program designed specifically for those wanting to lose 50 lbs or greater, I can only comment and say what she did isn’t practical in the real world. On the ranch, everything is provided for them without any temptations. The stresses of the outside world are removed and it provides an easier playing ground to lose massive amounts of weight quickly. Please note it still isn’t EASY. Contestants have to still eat the healthy food and push their bodies further then many professional athletes train. Once the contestants go home for a the months leading up to the finale they hit the real world, but not really…
If you knew $250,000 was on the line and 50 or more million people will see you over the upcoming weeks in very little clothing, I bet you would do what it takes to lose significant weight. My hope for Rachel is that her body can balance out, she gains back the 10-15 lbs of water weight that she most likely dropped and finds balance in her life.
Over the course of the past year I have been able to get to know some “heroes,” and I would like to share a very professionally done 5 minute video that I believe will inspire you, challenge you, and motivate you to take your health up to the next level.

These people have gotten similar results to the BL contestants while still juggling their family, finances, kids activities, careers, and so on. They did it the right way, slow and steady with many bumps and roadblocks along the way.
