“When I think back on my 20s and 30s, I look better now than I ever have. Yes, I’m older but I’m also wiser and that’s a more intrinsic type of beauty,” 

Jillian may be referring to her battle with being over weight as a teenager, but when she decided to take up martial arts it sparked her passion to lose weight and eventually led her to a career in fitness.

Biggest Loser Trainer Bob Harper Says Diet Trumps Exercise In Weight Loss

20130826-065642.jpg

So how important is dieting when you are trying to lose weight? Very Important!

According to “The Biggest Loser” trainer Bob Harper:

“It is all about your diet. I used to think a long time ago that you can beat everything you eat out of you and it’s just absolutely not the case.”

Harper has assisted people in losing weight, both on “The Biggest Loser” and off cameras, he even has DVD workouts and a book called “The Skinny Rules,” which gives advice on dropping excess weight.

But aside from promoting a healthy diet, Harper’s big part of his exercise regimen consists of lunges and core-strengthening exercises.

Harper says that this exercise helps people to get their heart rate up and once doing so, they can be able to burn fat.

Dr. Mark Kelly, an exercise physiologist at the American Council on Exercise believes that indeed diet can lower weight, but exercise allows the lower weight to stick.

Well we just want to say keep up the great work Bob, we hope to speak with you here at Fit With Fallon!

Ruben Studdard Joins The Biggest Loser!

rubenThe world has always known American Idol’s Ruben Studdard as being a big man, with an even bigger voice, but Ruben is ready to change all that. He has officially decided to let the world watch him attempt to get the weight off and compete on NBC’s The Biggest Loser!

After having minimal success in 2006 with weight loss, in which he quit his workout and diet regime after losing just twelve pounds, he has decided to try again.

The first time Ruben tried to lose weight but decided the weight-loss plan was not for him, he made the decision to go vegetarian, which helped him lose seventy pounds.  Now even more motivated than ever with an audience watching, Studdard is going to try once again.  In October 2006, Studdard said,

“On both sides of my family, I have a family history of diabetes and high blood pressure and things of that nature. I just wanted to basically combat those issues at an early age. They’ve never been an issue for me, but I wanted to do it while I was still young, and felt like working out and looking great.”

Whatever the new reason is that made Ruben want to join The Biggest Loser, we will cheer him on starting October 8th on NBC!

Fourteen seasons later, and Jillian Michaels and her team of trainers are still inspiring and changing lives on NBC’s The Biggest Loser. After 3 months of hard work, sweat, tears (and Jackson’s puke) the contestants had their final weigh ins and a shot at winning a quarter million dollars.

On monday in Culver City, I was able to attend and cover the Biggest Loser finale for my weekly Biggest Loser after show on Afterbuzz TV.

The transformations were inspiring! I literally couldn’t believe my eyes seeing the drastic changes as the contestants walked out in front of me on stage.

If you haven’t been watching let me catch you up to speed;

Fighting child obesity was a major priority this season. BL decided to take on three overweight kids Sunny, ALex and the lovable Bingo. America’s favorite trainers were able to help the kids shed the pounds, improve overall health, and achieve some of their goals like being able to make the cheer squad, baseball team, and fit into a prom dress.

Winning the $100,000 at home challenge was Pam. Pam lost 113lbs and 46.12 percent body fat.

The three Biggest Loser finalist boiled down to Jackson, Jeff and Danni.

Danni may have been the last one standing on Jillian’s team, but she was the one to win it all! Losing a total of 121 pounds and 46.9 percent body fat, Danni is this seasons biggest loser!

Check out my Afterbuzz aftershow below where I recap the Biggest Loser finale and give you the behind the scenes exclusives with my cohost’s Lauren and James.

Starting off with teaching the contestants proper footwork and punching techniques, she then had them put on the gloves and hit the bags.

Boxing is known to be a great workout. You can burn anywhere from 600-1000 calories during a 1 hour session depending on the different activities you do whether your sparring, hitting the bags, or punching the mitts.
