How the Biggest Loser Works

The Biggest Loser is a collection of weight loss plans that have gained fame thanks to the popular “The Biggest Loser” television show. The idea behind this weight loss plan is that people can choose diets that have worked for others on the diet to see if they can help them in the same way. On top of giving dieters healthy eating tips, the Biggest Loser also has a a number of exercise plans that people an choose from based on their experience and needs.

One thing that every Biggest Loser includes is a meal plan that will have dieters each five or six small, healthy meals every day. The company makes it easy for their customers to track what they are consuming each day by consistently mixing in the same amount of fruits and vegetables, meats and whole grains. What people choose to eat is up to them, but they have to stick to what the company calls the “Biggest Loser's 4-3-2-1 Pyramid to be able to see the best results.

Do Dieters Lose Weight on the Biggest Loser?

The only thing that would hold people back from being able to lose weight on the Biggest Loser is not following the plan to the letter. Each diet is set up to be healthier than what most dieters are used to eating and, most importantly, they are all low in calories.

On top of offering a good mix of food menus and exercise plans, the Biggest Loser also gives tips to those who need a little more help losing weight. Most dieters won't have to include any supplements in their diets, but the program does suggest a few products that should help dieters who aren't seeing the results that they wanted.

Level of Effort

Unlike many of the other complete diet programs out there today, the Biggest Loser actually allows people to eat and drink what they want as long they stick to the calorie limit and follow the 4-3-2-1 Pyramid. This makes getting through each day much easier for dieters since they won't have to get used to a whole new menu of foods.

Exercise is usually the hardest part of any diet plan, but the Biggest Loser does make it easier on people since they won't have to figure out which workouts to do on their own. They can choose from a number of exercise routines to help them lose as much weight as they can.


The Biggest Loser start at just over $20 per six-week session, so it is certainly affordable. Sticking with the diet means that people will have to pay a bit more for food than they are used to, but those who are committed to losing weight probably won't see that as too big of a problem once they see the results that the program can give them.
