Fat Chance

A weight loss memoir by one of Biggest Loser's most memorable contestants.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

As one of the most memorable contestants on NBC's The Biggest Loser Season 4, Julie Hadden, lost an outstanding 45 percent of her body weight. This runner-up Biggest Loser has now written her own heartfelt memoir, Fat Chance: Losing the Weight, Gaining My Worth. In it, Julie not only describes her weight loss journey but she offers everything from inspiration to recipes to her devoted fan base.

With a foreword from Jillian Michaels, Fat Chance uses humor and candor to tell a motivating story of one woman's struggle with her weight and how she used this battle to change her life and motivate thousands of others to change their lives as well.

Hadden describes not only her childhood, including her parent's divorce, but she also presents a vivid description of what being on Season 4 of the Biggest Loser was all about. From the audition to her grueling pre-dawn workouts to Jillian's tough love and how she quickly regained ten of the 97 pounds she lost within a month of leaving the reality series, Fat Chance is honest, open and inspirational.
