In a video I made this week, I discussed why the "winner" of The Biggest Loser (TBL) in 2009, a gentleman named Danny Cahill, ended up regaining most of his weight, and why he finds it so hard to maintain his current weight.
The standard argument is that their metabolic rates collapsed so that every little morsel of food that they ate went straight into their fat tissue.
As I explain in my first article review, this isn't the case at all.
If you're cutting back on sugar and fat (and who shouldn't?) in an attempt to lose a little weight, the last thing you should worry about is "starvation mode" metabolism.
TBL has a number of problems (disclaimer: I've never seen an episode. I have no appetite for canned, superficial, choreographed entertainment), including controlled environments, no behavioral modification, restrictive dieting, obnoxious personal trainers, an unhealthy fixation on weight loss, and unrealistic expectations.
Enjoy the video.
