The Biggest Loser is one of my guilty pleasures. Read what I think about the show here.
The Biggest Loser Couples Week Six
This episode started off with a temptation. All 11 contestants were placed in a booth individually. In the booth were (100) 26 calorie chocolates. Whoever ate the most chocolates had the right to replace on of their team members with one from the other group. A member on the blue team ate over 30 chocolates and won the temptation. He elected to keep the blue team the same.
I personally would not have eaten over 800 calories just to play the “game”. That’s over an hour of cardio and I really don’t like chocolates that much.
One of the members of the blue team was diagnosed with a stress fracture. They didn’t mention it in the episode, but I think this stress fracture could be the result of the hours of working out these contestants participate in.
Biggest Loser Prize
The biggest loser from last week won a visit from his brother. His brother was very surprised to see how much weight he had lost. He tried on his brother’s size 36 jeans and fit them. The first time he had worn size 36 jeans since high school.
Jillian recomends that her team drink more milk. Many of them had been under-eating. Milk has the best types of proteins (whey and casein) and calcium. Drinking skim milk can help you get healthy and lose weight.
The two teams battled in a cook off. The cook off was judged by a renowned chef. He was graded their multi-course meal based on taste and calorie count. The black team won because their total calorie count was over 400 calories less than the blue team’s.
The chef had two great recomendations:
- Use crushed red peppers to help season your foods instead of salt
- Use pink lentils instead of beans because of their high protein percentage
The black team won the weigh in. Their members lost between 7 and 13 pounds that week. The blue team members lost between 5 and 9 pounds. Then in a “back-stabbing” move, the blue team voted off Jackie.
