936. The Biggest Loser


The television series The Biggest Loser ran for 17 seasons. It’s being reported that most of the winning contestants have gained all their weight back. Dr. Martin explains why it happened in today’s episode.

Nearly all diets use a caloric deficit for losing weight. They want you to eat less and move more. Almost all the participants felt like they were being starved. They failed to keep the weight off because their relationship with food was never fixed.

Dr. Martin says that weight loss is more about your relationship to food than to the scale. Learning to eat the proper foods and avoiding harmful ones is much more important than burning calories like with The Biggest Loser.
