Biggest Loser – Motivational and Inspirational Quotes Season 12 week #10

Before I get to the Motivational and Inspirational Quotes from this week I want to go over an important Holiday weight gain issue. This was the Thanksgiving episode. They started the show with Thanksgiving temptation. But more importantly they dropped an interesting fact.

According the The Biggest Loser, the average American consumes about 4500 calories during Thanksgiving. This is an important fact. Because so many people worry about weight gain during the Holidays or try to make a Holiday meal healthier. I say that that is a waste of time. Here’s  why….

Yes the average American may consume 4500 calories. But if you’re an average American you’ll need about 2000 calories that day. So it is only 2500 extra calories. That means you’d only gain about .7 pounds on Thanksgiving. You shouldn’t be concerned with a .7 pound weight gain on Thanksgiving. You should enjoy yourself and your friends, family and food. What you should be concerned about, and what should keep you awake at night is the extra 100 calories that you consume the 350 non-holiday days each year that lead to 10 pounds of weight gain a year.

If you eat clean everyday and exercise more days than not year round, then you won’t have anything to worry about on the Holidays. How much more fun and enjoyable will they be if that is your reality?

Let’s look at this another way. Let’s say that you consume an extra 2500 on each of the Holidays; Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. That is 10,000 extra calories. That means you’d gain about 2.8 pounds. You seriously aren’t trying to make Thanksgiving a healthy meal because your worried about gaining only 2.8 pounds are you? If so here is the solution. You need a combination of reduced calorie intake (eating) or increased calorie expenditure (moving) of about 166 calories per day to lose 2.8 pounds during the two months between Halloween and New Years Day.

If you do that, then you can pig out during the four holidays and not gain a pound.

So how do you get to a total of 166 calories?

10 minutes of exercise (jogging at 12 minutes/mile, circuit training, aerobics), for a 180 pound person will burn about 100 calories. One chocolate chip cookie is about 72 calories. Grand total 172 calories. There you go. Exercise 10 minutes/day (or add 10 minutes to your workout) and skip one cookie per day. That way you can enjoy your holidays and not gain any weight.

Now if you just go nuts and have Halloween candy around for a month, eat Thanksgiving left overs for a week, eat every bit of candy and cookies that people bring in to work or give you as gifts, then you’re going to gain a ton of weight (10-20+ pounds). If you’re going to do that then just disregard everything I’ve written above.

Gain the weight and look me up in January. I’ll help you to lose the weight then!!!

Biggest Loser – Motivational and Inspirational Quotes From Season 12, Week 8

Before I get to the motivational and inspirational quotes from this weeks episode of The Biggest Loser, there are a couple interesting topics from this show that I believe will help you immensely.

They brought in a doctor who is a expert on how the pleasure area of the brain reacts to food. They compared the reaction of non-obese to the reaction of obese people. Here are the super interesting results. When an obese person sees or smells food they get a much greater reaction in the pleasure area of the brain. They experience an increase of the neurotransmitter dopamine.

But when an obese person begins to eat they experience much less pleasure than a normal weight person. So they continue to eat more food in an attempt to experience more pleasure. Here is the conclusion obese people have stronger cravings (and pleasure response) for food but have to actually eat more to experience the same pleasure that a normal weight person does. That is a double whammy that makes the cycle of obesity so difficult to overcome.

To beat it you have to rethink everything. Everything about your relationship with food and activity. You can retrain your brain. This retraining (the new habits) can take weeks or even months to develop. That is why short term, quick fix diets and exercise programs will never work. To make thinks even more challenging weeks of working on changing your thought process can easily be erased by several days (one week) of returning to your old habits.

Think, going on vacation for a week after only being on your new program for a few weeks prior. When you get back you may need to start the process all over. I know that that might seem daunting, but what is the alternative? What if you don’t fail? What if you succeed? Or even worse, what if you don’t even try?

Respect yourself! Make your health a priority!

One more really positive thing before I get to the top quotes.

Ramon, who is 27, was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes at the beginning of the season. In eight weeks he has changed his diet and exercise program and lost enough weight to completely reverse the disease. This is proof that proper nutrition and exercise will profoundly and positively affect your health. It will work, every time!

Biggest Loser Season 12 Week 2

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, then you know that I posted regularly on last season’s The Biggest Loser. I’ve decided not to do that this year. My reason is simple. The show is essentially the same as it always has been. So detailed posts won’t really provide you with any worthwhile information. Plus you can DVR it or watch past episodes online to find out what’s happening. And that is far more entertaining.

But the show is a great inspiration for what is possible.

What is most interesting to me is the motivational and inspirational nuggets that can be gleaned from the show.

So on that note I’ll still post the best (and my favorite) quotes from the show each week. Here they are…

“You have to fix what’s wrong in your thoughts to fix what’s wrong with your body.”

“You’re doing everything right, you’ve got to give yourself some slack.”

“It’s all going to workout, if you allow it to.”

“You’re strong and you can do this, you’re ready.”

“Become aware and take responsibility of your actions.”

“Stop killing yourself; start living!”

“Don’t give up, keep pushing.”

“Kick butt, take names and have a great time!”


See you next week!
