DIET and NUTRITION

The Biggest Loser Cookbook is unique because rather than just a bunch of recipes it also incorporates the diet plan that Biggest Loser contestants used. The 4-3-2-1 pyramid involves eating four servings of fruits and vegetables, three servings of lean protein, two servings of whole grains and one serving classified as extra. With this cookbook, there are simple recipes to choose from. Some of the more popular recipes include:

Each recipe also includes its complete nutrition profile including how many calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, fiber and cholesterol it contains.

EXERCISE

The exercise program in the Biggest Loser Cookbook recommends that the best way to burn fat and calories is through cardio exercise. You start out with steady state cardio, which means you get your heart rate into its fat burning zone and keep it there for a set period of time. After you’ve gotten to a comfortable level with this, you move on to interval training. Interval training is simply alternating between high and low intensity cardio exercise.

The workout plan also includes doing body-sculpting circuit training. This is a series of exercises performed one right after another with about five to eight seconds rest between. The entire exercise plan should be done for 12 weeks to receive maximum results. A breakdown of the workout is:

  • Circuit Training: Three times per week with one day rest between days
  • Cardio: Five to six days per week - activities such as walking, jogging, running, swimming, dancing or working out to a DVD
  • Allow one day of rest where no exercises are done
CONCLUSION

Those who are fans of the reality show will find the Biggest Loser Cookbook very appealing. Not only are you receiving a nice collection of recipes, but also a rundown of the program that has helped the contestants lose so much weight. This book can be a help to anyone trying to lose weight. It doesn’t matter if you watch the show or not, this tool can get you into shape and into a healthy weight range.
