5 Minute Meal


Posted on October 28th, 2011 by Jeff Thiboutot M.S.

The 12th season of the Biggest Loser show started a couple of weeks ago. There is no doubt that this “reality” show is popular and that most of the competitors have lost a lot of weight during the season. That’s all great. The popularity of the Biggest Loser has lead to many spin-offs and has likely increased the use of weight loss competitions (at work, local gyms, community centers, websites dedicated to this, etc) to “motivate” people to lose weight.
