In 2009, Danny Cahill, a contestant on The Biggest Loser (US) lost an astonishing 239 pounds in just 7 months. Eight years later he’s (sadly) regained 100 pounds.
But here’s the shocking truth.
Danny, and many other contestants, now have a SLOW metabolism.
According to a new research study from the journal Obesity, Danny Cahill “burns 800 fewer calories a day than would be expected for a man his size.”
The cardio-induced weight loss slowed his metabolism.
It’s as if his body is fighting hard to put back ON the weight.
Four others from that season of The Biggest Loser are now even heavier than when the show started, and nearly all have a slower metabolism.
According to the New York Times, “Sean Algaier, 36, a pastor from Charlotte, N.C., feels cheated. He went from 444 pounds to 289 as a contestant on the show. Now his weight is up to 450 again, and he is burning 458 fewer calories a day than would be expected for a man his size. “It’s kind of like hearing you have a life sentence,” he said.”
It’s NOT fair.
Dina Mercado, another contestant on that season, also has a slower metabolism (and burns 437 fewer calories per day than would be expected for a woman her size).
Worse, the show’s doctor, Robert Huizenga, “tells contestants that they should exercise at least nine hours a week” to keep the weight off.
Who has time for 9 hours per week of exercise?
And who has a body that won’t get injured in some way from 9 hours of exercise?
The answer is NO ONE
Scientists agree that a new approach is necessary.
So do I … one that doesn’t involve nearly 40 hours of exercise per month. That’s ridiculous.
I truly believe one of the biggest problems with the TV show’s approach to weight loss is the excessive amounts of exercise – and cardio.
The show had contestants like Danny Cahill exercising seven hours a day to burn 8000 calories.
When he went home, he was running on the treadmill for 90 minutes – BEFORE working out for 2.5 hours in the gym.
No one can keep that up!!!
It just doesn’t work for lifelong weight loss and a lean, healthy, pain-free body.
There has to be a better way.
And there is.
It doesn’t require you going on national TV and exposing your life to the world.
It doesn’t need you to exercise 7 hours a day… or on the treadmill.
So what’s the magic pill??
It’s called Consistency …
Creating a daily routine that involves healthy eating and physical activity
Repetition is the Mother Skill …
Keep the balance positive.
3 steps forward to every 1 backwards is still progress
I know that you can see the bigger picture
Could you open your mind for a moment to picture yourself in 6 months time?
What changes have you made?
How do you look? What do you feel? Where are you? WHO are YOU?
Often our desire to succeed is being propelled by a fear of failure, or a fear that we might not be good enough
People who believe they have a limited source of willpower display a lower ability to exercise self-control. So no matter what the obstacle is – big or small – know that deep down inside, you have the power to persevere, no matter what!
That’s the power of belief, and willpower is a state of mind!
To increase willpower, first choose a goal you want to achieve today, this week, or this month. Write it down. Then create an affirmation telling yourself that you have all the power in the world to manifest your goal.
Turn your “I should’s” into “I want,” but make sure it’s a genuine desire.
Instead of saying “I must, say “I will.”
Try it right now.
Think about a task you normally struggle with and visualize doing it as you repeat these sentences over and over: “I should do better…I must succeed…I have to work harder.”
Notice how you feel.
