Two hours is too long. And I agree with everyone about the red team not loosing...three people only loosing two pounds....that is what I'm loosing right now...1-2 a week and I'm in ONEder land....and not working out 6+ hours a day.
I am sorta missing the Evil Drama that previous contestants have previously brought to the show. Nice to see the White Team not lose anymore team members. I wonder if Frangelina will be come a new member of the White Team?
Are they switching up the teams next week?
The blue team was not allowed to work out at all in the game room. They were illustrating what being a couch potato does to your energy, motivation and weight. That seems to be the theme this year because of the kids.
They were not allowed to throw the gum ball; they had to carry it. It weighed 10 pounds.
The parents of the kids were all overweight themselves. I was shocked to see the amount of junk food they all had! I guess because I don't stock those things and never have. A bag of chips and some cookies, maybe but they had garbage bags full of stuff.
Most hit a plateau this week like usually happens in week 2.
I assume they are all on the same diet. Biggest Loser has a product line and will probably continue to build on that. We know their diet is not great when they were doing product placement for Subway. Their rolls are all basically white bread. None of them pass the schmush test.
They work them way too hard. Maybe there are days when they do less strenuous exercize and that is not shown. Big mistake, if so. I bet there are many viewers who are discouraged knowing they do not have the time or help to work out like that. Shame because losing weight is 80% diet and a 30 minute walk a day does a lot. So walk an hour twice a day to balance the workouts.
When I heard the woman on the treadmill say her shins were burning I was stunned that they pushed her more. Shin splints are difficult to heal and something trainers aim to avoid.
I don't like Jillian but I dont want her off the show either. She provides interest, drama and illustrates the negative side of screaming at people to get the results you want.
The fact that the blue team lost weight proves that people don't have to exercise to lose weight. All of the extreme exercise is just for drama for a TV show.
But it was only 4 1/2 hours each day they could not exercise, what about the other times when they should have been working.
