    how long does the biggest loser really last for?

    I was watching the finale of that show last night, and I couldn't figure it out. How long do they have to lose the weight? They make it seem like they do it over around 4 months or so, but it has to be longer than that. One of the guys lost 214 pounds!

    Anyone know how long they actually tape for?

    Pretty much what I've heard (3 months + 6 at home). They lose a lot because they have a lot to lose. The are also not try to be body builder's but just drop big numbers every week. I believe the male diet is 1500 calories a day and the female is 1200 with 4+ hours of exercise a day while on the ranch. (2 hours in the morning and 2 later in the day)

    I usually LOVE the show, but I found this season so negative (I think it was Heather's influence) that I stopped watching after a while. Last season was my favorite and seemed more positive.

    Additional note- Apparently Marty had an affair with Amy while on the ranch and that's why they never showed his wife when he returned home.

    The one girl, Poppi from New Jersey, lost like 117 pounds and was only 115 pounds at the finale. It's an inspirational show but it makes me sad when they lose all of their muscles. I didn't watch all season, only a few episodes here and there, but I think Marty looked the best at the end bc his arms were looking pretty good, haha

    ...I always wondered if that kind of stuff went on. Sad really.

    I love the show. But i thought that most of the contestants were whiney.
    They are the ones that kinda ruined the show for me.

    IMO Marty did it right. Looked like he lost alot of fat and ended up with some nice defination. The guy that one looked like he simply went for total weight loss and nothing else.

    Yeah, Marty was looking pretty big. Wylie & Jaron too.

    A lot of the chicks were looking very good. I don't blame Marty after seeing Amy! LOL. j/j He still shouldn't have cheated on his wife.

    The show is very motivational. I know they don't exactly care about muscle mass at first, but they do lift weights and work hard. You could see that all of them had put on some good lean mass. Even most of the people that were sent home lost tons of weight. Makes me want to make a poster showing all of thier transformations. If they can make that drastic of a change then anyone can.
