Are you a gossip junkie like I am? I know it's not exactly something to be proud of, but when your "name" is Diet Diva, you're allowed some leeway here I think. I had a face-to-face with a Biggest Loser contestant and I've got quite the lowdown -- insider tips and gossip that you won't see on air!
The annoying part is that I was told in confidentiality. A few months ago I wrote a blog on The Biggest Loser diet. I made a few snide remarks regarding their training techniques and food preparations. I can't tell you all of the secrets I was told, but I will admit that most of my presumptions I wrote about
A few things I will disclose are that the day before the weigh-in all they do is cardio, cardio and more cardio. They are weighed early in morning, but do not know their actual weight until the taping, which is at night. The first weigh-in lasted about 4 hours! Before weigh-ins, the contestants are joined by the trainers for some water weight loss activities.
The contestants are doing cardio for about 6 hours a day. They also have a "cheat" day like many diets allow. The day they weigh in, they actually get to enjoy foods like hamburgers and fries because they have already weighed in, and now they have to re-energize for another crazy week.
I was lucky enough to sit down with one of the most blogged-about contestants from Season 5 of The Biggest Loser. She filled me in on some more of the secrets from the show. Stuff like what they eat, who prepares it, and if there are chefs around.
