Michelle Aguilar with Jillian Michaels
When talking with Michelle, season 6 winner of the Biggest Loser, one word repeatedly came to mind, “Incredible.” At finale she looked absolutely gorgeous, however I wanted to get at more than just her physical beauty, I instead wanted to focus on her inner strength. For those of us that religiously followed the show, we were able to see her inner strength gradually come out.
Having experienced the Biggest Loser first hand, I wanted to see how her experience transformed her mentally and emotionally. During our conversation she shared some really insightful things that the everyday viewer doesn’t always get a chance to hear, things like; how relationships in her life have changed, tips for maintaining her new found health, her future goals and endeavors, her relationship with Jillian and the Black Team, and most importantly her “Life Long Resolution”.
Congratulations Michelle, you are truly an inspiration to so many, as for all you “Biggest Loser” viewers be sure to tune in to Season 7 on January 6.

During last week’s episode of Biggest Loser, Ed and Heba prepared Thai Turkey Wraps as a thank you for their trainer, Bob Harper. It looked so good, and Bob’s reaction to the scrumptious dish made all of you hungry for the recipe. So, a big shout out and gracious thank you to Ed Brantley for sharing his personal recipe with all of us at DietsInReview.com.
1 package ground turkey
1 clove of chopped garlic
1 tsp. of minced fresh ginger
2 Tbsp. light soy sauce
1 carrot, peeled and minced
6 scallions, finely chopped
7 sprigs cilantro chopped
4 limes, juiced
Sriacha chili sauce (can be purchased at a local Asian market or international food section in the grocery)
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 red bell pepper finely diced
1 cucumber, peeled, de-seeded and julienned
1 head Boston lettuce
1/4 cup roasted, unsalted peanuts
Brown turkey, place in refrigerator to cool.
Once cool, mix all ingredients (except: pepper, cucumber, lettuce and peanuts) in a bowl.

Serve mixture in lettuce cups with cucumber, pepper and peanuts for garnish.
“Whoohoo, Makeover!”, On Episode 11 contestants got to strut their slimmer stuff on the Tyra Banks show in New York City. I feel the makeover show is one of the most powerful episodes that the Biggest Loser has every season. It allows contestants, as well as viewers, to see just how far they’ve come on their weight loss journey. That being said Ed, Heba, Vicky, Michelle, and Renee were whisked away for a shopping spree at Macy’s and treated to new hair styles at an incredible salon. The makeover episode is powerful in that it allows contestants the opportunity to realize that they can now shop off the rack, which for me was a tremendous personal victory. I would like to applaud each of the contestants on looking terrific!
After walking Tyra’s stage contestants were surprised by family members who flew out to New York to see their new and improved loved ones. While in New York contestants and family members decided to see the town and found themselves in the middle of Time Square, where Bob and Jillian miraculously appeared on a TV monitor. The Biggest Loser trainers congratulated contestants on their hot new look, but reminded them that they were still in the middle of a competition and that they had better spend their remaining time in the city working out. Contestants and their families took their trainers message to heart and the next day the blue team worked out at a newly opened 24 hour fitness, while the black team worked out in both Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge.
