Basically there are two teams, each with a different diet (both seem to focus more on the low carb craze- a whole other rant in itself!) and fitness routine.
Jillian gathered her Red Team in the kitchen and explained the "Eat Less" Diet. It was as simple as this:
Burn more calories than you take in
High protein, high fiber, low carb meals
"If you cheat," Jillian warned, "don't lie to me."
Over in Bob's kitchen, he explained the "Eat More" diet.
The goals are:
Deal with hunger before it happens
4-6 planned meals a day
High-volume, low-calorie, low-carb eating
After the first week they weighed everyone to see how much weight they lost. These people had lost between 5 and 22 pounds!!! IN ONE WEEK! How is that healthy???? And the people that only lost 5 pounds were getting upset with themselves because they didn't lose as much as the others, ignoring the fact that they were only starting out around 170 instead of 250+++. Then they calculate which team lost the least amount of pounds, and then that team has to vote someone off??? What does this accomplish? How is this helping anyone? Oh look, I didn't lose as much water weight as this person so now I have to go home??? And you have to love comments like these:
Aaron was next and voted for Dana, because he didn't think she had enough weight to lose.
*rolls eyes* I just hate the message that this show is sending to people. It's NOT healthy to loose that much weight in such a short amount of time! But it's okay because....
*Our contestants were supervised by doctors while participating in the show, and their diet and exercise regimen was tailored to their medical status and their specific needs. Consult with your own doctor before embarking on any diet or exercise program.
I was so annoyed after watching the weigh-ins at the end that I had to change the channel, couldn't stand to see it dragged out for an additional 20 min for them to decide who will be kicked off...
I have one word for this show... BULLSHIT!
