NBC-TV's "The Biggest Loser" Season 2 At-Home Winner and nutritional health author Pete Thomas is our guest today in Episode 627 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
Ever since "The Biggest Loser" first hit the airwaves in the same year Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, it has both inspired people to get active about losing weight and simultaneously sent the wrong messages about the kind of nutrition and exercise it takes to not just lose the weight but keep it off for good. Former contestant Pete Thomas knows just a thing or two about this subject. Jimmy got a better sense for this in his December 2007 interview with Pete about his amazing weight loss and healthy lifestyle change.
As the most successful "Biggest Loser" contestant in the show's history after shedding 185 pounds in his nine-month experience winning the $100,000 at-home prize in the reality weight loss program seen by millions weekly, Pete has spent most of the seven years that have elapsed promoting what it takes not just to lose the weight quickly but also keep it off for the rest of your life. He's written a brand new book about this subject in 2012 called Lose It Fast, Lose It Forever: A 4-Step Permanent Weight Loss Plan from the Most Successful "Biggest Loser" of All Time with a special foreword written by his his trainer on the show Jillian Michaels.
Listen in to hear Jimmy and Pete (who have been friends for years connected by their triple-digit weight loss successes) gab it up about the realities of what happens after losing a ton of weight, what role carbohydrate-restriction plays in controlling weight and how to make the changes you make in your diet and health stick. Get inspired by this incredible long-term weight loss success!
