Scale Last night I watched the first episode of The Biggest Loser season 8. On this episode they had the biggest person ever in Biggest Loser history – a woman whose starting weight was 476 pounds. I was almost in as much shock as Jillian and Bob when I saw this and then I wondered how they begin teaching the contestants how to start eating better so they can lose weight.

This is where the 4, 3, 2, 1 comes into play…

The contestants are given a calorie level to eat at but are also encouraged to eat:

4 – cups of fruits and vegetables daily

3- servings of lean proteins

2- servings of whole grains

1- extra fat, sweets, alcohol – no more than 200 calories

Other tips the contestants are given:

Eat whole foods

No white foods (white bread, white rice)

Drink water

Exercise – start with 30 minutes and combine cardio and strength training

Keep a food journal

As you can see The Biggest Loser diet is easy to follow and can be easily
incorporated into your life if you are looking to lose weight or make
some lifestyle changes.
