Winning Man Pete Thomas Lost 185 Pounds on the Biggest Loser TV Show

On today’s show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy had on Pete Thomas from the Biggest Loser TV show. Pete did such a great job living this new healthy lifestyle that the morning after the competition ended he went out for a 90 minute run. And when he came back the other contestants asked him if he ever turns it off – and he said he doesn’t because an active lifestyle is now just part of his daily life.  Pete walked away from the show $100,000 richer because he lost the most weight out of all the contestants that season. The amazing things about that weight loss success story is that he lost 123 of the 185 pounds while working out on his own. When he was voted off the ranch he knew that he had all of the tools to lose the weight on his own and sure enough he did. Pete also gave us a glimpse behind the scenes of the Biggest Loser TV show – he shared some stories about fitness trainer Jillian Michaels and he revealed that the contestants are put through a vigorous training regimen for weeks prior to filming the shows – we’re talking 4 hours of exercise 6 days a week for weeks so they can get in good enough shape to do the activities on the show. After going through this experience Pete feels that there has to be a different weight loss plan for people who are extremely overweight – he said that the weight has to come off fast in order to keep the obese person motivated so he has written a book titled Lose Big to help those people who are extremely overweight.
