If you missed the Today show this morning, you missed seeing Biggest Loser’s chipper Ali Vincent. She says these days she’s always got a smile on her face. She’s kept off her 112 pound weight loss since she won season five in 2008, becoming the first female Biggest Loser. Ali was on the show to introduce the new 30-Day Jump Start by Biggest Loser. She said she enjoyed the book because it reminded her of some things she’d forgotten. Even for her, Ali said it’s easy to get complacent, and whether you’re just starting or need a reminder, this new 30-Day Jump Start is a great resource.
She was joined by Biggest Loser nutritionist Cheryl Forberg, who explained the book is for anyone who wants to lose weight or maintain. She said the book is full of the same nutrition advice, fitness tips and recipes that they share with the contestants at the ranch. Her two points of advice on Today were:
- Eat Your Calories, Don’t Drink Them. Stay away from high-calorie drinks. Water should be a staple, and skim milk is acceptable.
- Don’t Skip Meals, Especially Breakfast. They advise eating three balanced meals and two small snacks each day.
Ali also performed a brief fitness move with Al Roker. Using resistance band, she placed one foot on the band, held the handles and performed a rowing motion. Ali says to do 12-15 repetitions, alternating legs.
Other recipes from the book include:
