Contestants on the TV show “The Biggest Loser” may not be “losers” after all. A recent study of Season Six contestants has revealed that six years after the show ended, most of the participants regained a substantial amount of weight.
For those unfamiliar with the show, overweight and obese contestants compete for a cash prize by demonstrating the greatest weight loss by percentage. Along the way, contestants receive coaching from trainers and nutritionists.
So, after achieving their weight loss goals and learning the keys to weight loss, why do they gain the weight back?
