AGAIN Biggest Loser?!

So, have you heard the news?

The latest Biggest Loser winner is already up 20 pounds.



Yes, I have to say that she looks much healthier adding the extra weight to her frame.  But what does it say about her win if she needed to add that much back to her body after "winning"?

And, it scares me that she put on 20 pounds in less than two months.

Do you understand the math behind that?

20 pounds * 3,500 calories per pound = 70,000 calories
70,000 calories / 60 days (+/-) = about 1,200 calories a day

The average woman should eat around 1,500 calories a day.  So, she essentially DOUBLED her caloric intake in the last month to get her body back up to healthy.  (Or worse, she actually finally started EATING again period.)

Why would you want to watch a show that encourages this kind of yo-yo dieting?
