We all watched Biggest Loser season 3 contestant Erik Chopin lose 214 pounds in 2006 and become The Biggest Loser, and then sadly last year, we discovered that this Biggest Loser winner had regained much of the weight he lost – 122 pounds to be exact.
But after an in-person visit from Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper, Erik is ready to get back to his fighting weight to fight once again for his life.
The new reality series, “Confessions of a Reality Show Loser,” follows Erik on his personal journey to lose the weight for good.
The show, which premiered on Wednesday, January 6 on the Discovery Health channel, shows Eric punching bags at the Long Island Boxing Gym and receiving some much needed support from his fellow workout buddies. Each episode will follow Erik has he takes those first, second and subsequent steps toward leading a healthy life again.
Last year, Erik appeared on both the Larry King Live and on Oprah, openly discussing his weight regain. As a self-professed food addict, Erik understands now more than ever that maintenance is truly a lifetime and daily process.
DietsInReview.com will keep you posted on Erik’s weight loss in the coming weeks.
