Jillian Michaels Quits Biggest Loser USA

You may recall that there was a lot of controversy surrounding the winner of the Biggest Loser USA this year (refer to previous blog: https://loseweightwithsue.wordpress.com/2014/02/11/winner-of-the-biggest-loser-usa-is-too-thin/).  In a nutshell, Rachel Fredrickson was declared the Biggest Loser, however, her appearance shocked the crowd:  she was very underweight.  Jillian Michaels, one of the popular trainers, has now sensationally quit the show – and insiders believe it is due to her open disapproval in the way the show ‘rewarded’ a person for taking her weight loss too far.

The winner of the Biggest Loser is the person who loses the most weight which seems fair enough in concept.  However, there are no ‘rules’ in place if somebody who loses too much weight – should the producers of the show award the prize to a contestant who looks underweight and unhealthy?  Of course not and obviously Jillian Michaels agrees (read more here:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2670105/Jillian-Michaels-quits-The-Biggest-Loser-concerns-following-winner-Rachel-Fredericksons-dramatic-weight-loss.html).

When Rachel won the Biggest Loser title this year, her BMI was calculated at only 18 (between 20-25 is considered a healthy weight range).  This means that she was technically underweight – and with that goes a myriad of health issues including poor immune function, loss of hair, loss of bone density, lack of energy, anaemia and disruption in hormone production (just to name a few!).
