ABC’s newest reality weight loss TV show “My Diet is Better Than Yours” is flipping the script and putting the contestants in charge of their weight loss plan. Hosted by Shaun T, creator of the intense and wildly popular workout program Insanity, “My Diet is Better Than Yours” features celebrity personal trainers coaching average Americans as they work hard to lose weight and get in shape with the program of their choice.
Each trainer will bring their own unique, individually designed diet and exercise program to their contestant, in the hopes of helping them finally lose the weight to prove “My Diet Is Better Than Yours.” Some of the trainers and diets include Abel James, bestselling author of The Wild Diet, Dawn Jackson Blatner, author of The Flexitarian Diet, Carolyn Barnes, creator of the cLean Momma Plan and Jay Cardiello, creator of JCore.
Contestants will be following their expert’s unique diets while dealing with the stresses and pressures of the real world. Contestants will still live their normal lives, in their homes, working their day jobs, while doing their best to follow their trainer’s programs, preparing their own meals and making time for workouts. To measure the effectiveness of each program through the contestant’s weight loss and fitness progress, each contestant will be evaluated through challenges created by celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser, whose clients include Kelly Ripa and Shakira. If the contestant feels the program they have chosen is not measuring up, they may eliminate their trainers, putting them in full control of their weight loss journey.
ABC’s “My Diet is Better Than Yours” will premiere Thursday, January 7, 2016 at 9pm Eastern / 8pm Central
