So, first things first. Coach Mo is gone, Tracey stayed in the game. The contestants were shocked. After they get a hold of themselves, it’s straight into a challenge. This challenge had the teams digging up crates to get a prize that the ever-so-clever Alison Sweeney kept a secret. The blue team ends up being the better archaeologists, or moles, or whatever else that digs, and wins. The prize is a week’s trip home. For either team. The blue team makes the smart decision and sends the black team home, hoping for some massive stumbles. (more…)
Some big changes took place this week on the Biggest Loser ranch. The remaining 10 contestants went into teams of Black vs. Blue. This is an extremely emotional week for these contestants. Some lose their favorite trainer, some lose their partner, some both.
Hey everyone, I’m back again for the Week 4 Biggest Loser Recap. First thing noteworthy in this episode is that Tracey is not allowed to work out. At all. That stinks. Not being able to work out is almost a plane ticket home on the Biggest Loser ranch.
In a very good twist, the contestants had to order out for every single meal, after finding the kitchen completely locked down. Learning to eat well while going out is an extremely good skill to have. To go along with the new week comes a new pop challenge. The contestants had to determine which dinner had the fewest amount of calories. The winner was the pink team and they won a year’s supply of groceries. (more…)
The contestants started off this week with a series of temptations. If a team chose to abandon the use of two world-class trainers for one whole week, they get a two pound advantage at the weigh in. With most teams over or around 550 pounds a .36% is pretty dismal and really no one in their right mind would take it, right? Wrong. Tracey took control this week and took the two pounds without discussing with Coach Mo and faced the wrath of Bob and Jillian.
Hey everyone, I’m back once again for DietsInReview.com for my Biggest Loser 8 recap and reaction.
Right off the bat in this episode, Alison issues the contestants a challenge – lose 150 pounds as a group. Do it and no one goes home, otherwise two people are eliminated. Week two is infamous for producing poor numbers on the scale, so these contestants really had their work cut out for them.
On a better note, Tracey returned to the house from the hospital this week. She isn’t allowed back in the gym yet, but at least she’s on campus. With monitoring her nutrition she still should drop a significant amount of weight since it is her first week. (more…)
Biggest Loser is back and it seems to be bigger and better. Fifteen new contestants are competing for the title of The Biggest Loser and (the more important part) to get a second chance at life. In the spirit of second chances, Daniel Wright, a season 7 alum, got to come back to compete on this season. I’m glad to see him back and hope he can conquer his weight battle once and for all.
What do you all think of Daniel coming back? (more…)

Calorie counting, watching sodium intake, pounding water like I was preparing to traverse the Sahara, and I thought I had a good handle on my weight. After months of working out nonstop, eating perfectly, and cutting weight, I thought that having to maintain my new weight would be all too easy. As it turns out, this 19-year-old has some things to learn.
I’ve been home for about a month since the Season 7 Biggest Loser finale, and it has been one the toughest challenges I have had to face yet.
Now that I’m on my own with my weight, I have had my share of struggles and successes. Many people have asked me what I do now that I’m home. What I eat. How I workout. How did I do it. I have asked myself those same questions everyday since I got back home. (more…)
