After ‘The Biggest Loser,’ Their Bodies Fought to Regain Weight

After ‘The Biggest Loser,’ Their Bodies Fought to Regain Weight | Upsetment | Scoop.it
Contestants lost hundreds of pounds during Season 8, but a study of them helps explain why they could not keep all of that weight off.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
Over the years, many people have suggested that I diet, go to the gym, lose weight. There have been periods when for one reason or another I did thin down, and each time was followed not simply by a return to my pre-loss weight but to a heavier me. Now, at least, this study gives some notion of the whys of that unpleasant reality. Do I wish I were thin? Sure. Is that going to happen? Not likely. Which is one reason I hold my wife in such high esteem; she has been able to keep herself at a much lower weight than she once measured, and that struggle seems to be getting harder despite her best efforts. Am I the only one with this problem? I guess not.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

Helping people to stay well and helping those with chronic illnesses to stay as well as possible makes sense. Endless services and unnecessary tests don't help anyone except those who expect to get rich.
