The Biggest Loser TV series has become a huge success in multiple countries. It has glorified the process of weight loss to the point where Biggest Loser winners become overnight celebrities. People all over the world watch the show and gain motivation from the contestants. But should you be following the example set by the Biggest Loser or is doing so dangerous to your health? This article will cover the rights and wrongs of the Biggest Loser TV series.

Firstly, it has to be stated that The Biggest Loser has done a great thing in encouraging people all over the world to lose weight and improve their health. This is important to clarify before we go into more critical aspects of the show and how it is run. Obesity is a major issue in the western world and any way that people can be motivated to lose weight is a good thing.

Now lets dig deeper. Put simply, the way the contestants lose weight is not a good example. These guys get up on the scales, lose 'only' 3.4kg in a week and are upset that they didn't get a good weight loss for the week. Are you serious? That sort of weight loss is great! In fact, the recommended rate is 2 pounds or 0.5-1kg each week (more for heavier individuals). For the viewer it is simply unrealistic to expect 10kg (22lbs) of weight loss every week yet this is what The Biggest Loser contestants aim for. So don't follow this aspect of the show. It is unhealthy, unrealistic and as the contestants often find out, unsustainable in the long term.
