The Biggest Loser

During the first season of the biggest loser, they had the training and diet info listed on the site for free. I was smart enough to print it off. A lot of people watch the show and get discouraged because they don't see the results the contestants are seeing. Well first let me say what they do is super strenuous and strict. They also have trainers available to push them and they have the time to do it as well. They are away at the ranch secluded so they don't deal with work and life like everyday people like you and I. So I am going to post the plan just to show you how strict it is. I am not suggesting you try it. I would highly suggest you get your doctor's approval before starting any type of program. I know a few people who have modified the workout or used it for a week as a mini bootcamp and got results. HTH Q
