Science Behind “The Biggest Loser” Diet

http://rebeccascritchfield.wordpress.com

I’m hooked on “The Biggest Loser”. Maybe its because I get to watch lives being transformed and new behaviors shaped. Or maybe its because I feel gratified that these changes are a result of improvements in nutrition and exercise, areas in which I have expertise, rather than the promise of a fad diet, magic pills or surgery as a solution. But I was always so curious about what goes on behind the scenes. So you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to learn from the registered dietitian and physician for the show at a recent conference.

First off, they both admitted upfront that one of the reasons the people lose so much weight consistently is because of their new environment. All the barriers that usually exist to behavior change (job/life stresses, family and friends, lack of time, lack of knowledge about what to do) have been removed. Their new job is to exercise, learn about good nutrition habits, and practice them. This is one of the keys to their success. They get enough time in the new environment that once they leave they have enough knowledge and motivation to keep it going.

Biggest Loser Diet Weight Loss Tips

http://www.prevention.com

This article is courtesy of The Biggest Loser Club online. For more on the diet, or for other weight loss advice, go to www.BiggestLoserClub.com
The Biggest Loser Diet is a calorie-controlled, carbohydrate-modified, fat-reduced, weight-loss diet geared to help you burn pound after pound of pure fat--and do so without deprivation or loss of energy.

What's more, The Biggest Loser Diet is high in lean protein. Protein has a hunger-controlling effect on the body--which is why higher-protein diets are so effective for weight loss and fat-burning.

While on The Biggest Loser Diet, you have the freedom to eat a wide variety of foods, as long as you stick to mostly whole, natural foods.

"Whole foods" are those that have not been modified from their natural state, or have been modified only a little bit, for example, through cooking. Foods that have been substantially modified are classified as processed foods. Blueberries are a whole food. Blueberry toaster pastries are not.
Why Are 'Whole Foods' Important?

'The Biggest Loser' Diet

http://www.webmd.com

What It Is

You, too, can be The Biggest Loser by following a diet and fitness program similar to that used by contestants on the NBC TV show of the same name. There are no televised temptations of cheesy pasta or gooey brownies for home dieters, no diet pills or personal trainers -- just a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.

This is a low-calorie diet based on the Biggest Loser pyramid of 4-3-2-1 (four servings of fruits and veggies; three of lean protein; two of whole grains; and one "extra"), along with good old-fashioned exercise. Eat a diet based largely on fruits, vegetables and lean protein, add a heavy dose of physical activity and you will lose weight, lower cholesterol, decrease blood pressure, and become stronger and more energized.
Tufts University obesity clinician and researcher Michael Dansinger, MD, developed the weight loss program accompanied by dietitian and chef Cheryl Forberg, RD, and trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels, working with writer Maggie Greenwood-Robinson, PhD.

Over the course of the 12-week program, you can expect to eat small, frequent meals containing plenty of fiber and protein, for fullness without too many calories.

Jillian Michaels: Secrets of The Biggest Loser

http://www.time.com

Jillian Michaels, the hard-core personal trainer from NBC's The Biggest Loser, spent her adolescence overweight and unhappy. Enrolling in a martial arts class helped her shed the pounds and inspired her to dedicate her life to helping others lose weight. In her new book, Master Your Metabolism, she writes that the key to weight loss is balancing your hormones. As season seven of the show comes to an end this week, Michaels talks to TIME about why she recently called The Biggest Loser contestants "half dead," how much exercise the average person really needs and what changes you can make in your life to lose ten, twenty or hundreds of pounds.
Tell us about the three diet secrets from your new book.
People tend to think that metabolism is genetically predetermined. That you're either cursed or you're blessed. And that's not true. You can dramatically affect the expression of your metabolism and your biochemistry by the way you eat and the way you live. So, the first part of the plan is to remove all of the chemicals in your environment — your cleaning supplies, your beauty supplies and your food supply.

How to Succeed in Weight Loss: Advice from Jillian Michaels

http://www.glamour.com

Body by Glamour motivation coach Jillian Michaels, the fitness pro who’s helped dozens of The Biggest Loser contestants reach their weight-loss goals, has two key questions you should ask yourself before starting a new shape-up plan. Before anything else, I want to say, Good for you, girl! The fact that you’re even reading this means you’re getting ready to commit to bettering your body and health. That rocks. The free Body by Glamour program is one way to do it, but no matter what plan you choose to follow, you should ask yourself these two questions:
1. Why the heck are you doing this?

Most of us initially say we want to lose weight to look hot. But go a little deeper—why do you really want to get slimmer or stronger? What is it about your life or the way you feel about yourself right now? You have to be in this for you: to feel confident enough to have sex with the lights on; to feel comfortable in your own skin. Once you find out your main motivation, write it on Post-its and plant them in your gym bag, under your car visor, all over, so they’re always in your face and driving you to keep at it.

http://news.prnewswire.com

Jillian Michaels, New York Times bestselling author and renowned wellness coach from NBC's The Biggest Loser announces her first ever line of weight-loss products in partnership with ThinCare(TM) International, LLC. The new products will officially launch at the 2009 National Association of Chain Drug Stores Marketplace in Boston, Massachusetts on June 29, 2009. Scientifically developed, the new products are designed to help individuals overcome the two greatest pitfalls to successful weight loss - not having the willpower to reduce caloric intake, and not seeing and feeling results quickly enough to motivate and continue toward a healthier lifestyle.

"For quite some time I had been personally searching to develop the right natural products to help people achieve their weight-loss goals," says Michaels. "I always emphasize the importance of integrating fitness, nutrition, and changes of behavior in order to empower individuals to reach both their physical and psychological goals. Finally, my new line developed the right products to not only support myself but for others in their journey."
