If you tuned in to the show last night, you saw Jerry win the at home prize while Helen became Season 7's Biggest Loser.
Successful weight loss requires dietary modification, cardio and weight bearing exercise, as well as addressing the psychological aspects of emotional eating (which affect most of us on some level).
Many of you have written to ask what the contestants are eating, to fuel their vigorous exercise and to help them achieve their weight loss success. Today, I'd like to share the before and after food journal's of Helen, Season 7's Biggest Loser. Last fall, I met with Helen before the season started. She shared with me her typical daily intake at that time, which contributed to her starting weight of 257 pounds.
Helen's Typical Daily Intake - Before Biggest Loser
Often skipped breakfast, when she did have breakfast, she might have:
4 - 5 pieces bacon
2 slices toast
If breakfast skipped; lunch out or large lunch; such as a large salad with soup, dinner rolls and butter.
Or a steak and cheese sandwich - large 12 inch sandwich
1050 calories 86 grams fat
Fried breaded pork chops (2)
Large helping potatoes with butter
Slice of cheesecake
Before - Two meals per day no snacks. This particular day she had no vegetables or fruit.
Lunch and dinner total 2400 calories (prob twice what she needs plus overall very low quality calories)
