I watched it too.........and finally figured out their plan !
Weight loss boils down to calories in versus calories out.
In order to lose a pound you have to burn 3500 calories MORE than you consumed.
(1 pound = 3500 calories)
The folks on the biggest loser are allowed 1200 calories per day.
Their calories out goal is 6000 calories per day.
That is a bunch of calories out !! I too have the bodybugg and my burn goal (calories out) is 2400 calories per day. My calories-in goal is 1750 calories per day which leaves a calorie deficit of 650 calores per day.
650 calorie deficit X 7 days = 4550 calorie deficit per week............meaning I should lose about 1.25 pounds per week..........AND I AM !!!
1200 calories per day is a tiny amount of food, and 6000 calories per day to burn.......they have GOT to be working out...HARD...for at least 6 hours or more.
Just for me to get to the 2400 calorie burn means at least 1.25 hours of a good workout at the gym....and then staying active all thru the rest of the day.
Those folks are working extremely hard for those results...........and the numbers they are putting up are truely amazing !
So..........do any of you have a "favorite" picked out yet??? I know it is still kind of early in the season....but so far my heart goes out to the gal who lost her husband and 2 tiny children last year. I can not even imagine how she made it through something so terrible.
Yet, she always had a smile on her face.........amazing !
