MSUBioNerd saidYou don't, because as we keep telling you, you are not going to sustain losing 5 pounds of fat per week.
Disagree with you.
/Not that doing that is anywhere close to healthy.
Jillian actually says in her book that there's nothing wrong with fast weight loss as long as you're not starving yourself.
I like the Biggest Loser as a show, and find it inspirational, but the reality is that the rest of us are not on a ranch where our food is prepared for us, with a kitchen full of stocked food, being pushed by trainers for 6-8 hours of exercise every day. We have jobs, lives, celebrations where food is served, busy times where we can't always make good choices when it comes to food, but have to make the best possible choice. WW (and other programs) teach you how to manage your weight loss and maintain it in real life.
Since starting Weight Watches a month ago, I lost 3 lbs, 3 lbs, 4 lbs, 3 lbs, and this week 0.2 lbs. While it's hard to see that number, I remind myself that prior to starting WW, I was probably gaining a pound or two each week, so it's still going in the right direction.
Part of what makes the Biggest Loser contestants lose so much weight so quickly is that most of them are morbidly obese. Toward the end of the show, the amount of weight loss each week slows. And, at least when I've watched it, those who start out thinner, tend to get kicked off, because they can't consistently lose such huge amounts of weight.
