Hey guys, its Brendan from Season 10 of the Biggest Loser. I hope everyone had a happy holiday season. Speaking of the holidays, did you gain a loop on your belt or a size in your jeans? Well, if you did don’t worry about it because many people put on a few pounds during this time of year. The key is to not let that get you down and work those pounds off of your body so you can be ready for summertime!
As you know, my finale was just a few weeks ago. Now that the cameras are off and I don’t have to weigh-in in front of 1,000,000’s of people, I needed to find new motivation so I can maintain my weight. I think it’s important to have short-term goals and long-term goals so that you can hold yourself accountable with your weight loss. I am happy to announce that I am running two big races in April: The Boston Marathon and the Ragnar Relay race in Southern California. Not only will I be running those races, but I am also going to enter a bodybuilding competition in August. So, with all of my training you may wonder how I recuperate. The number one way to get your muscles ready for your next workout is by eating and using proper supplements. My favorite supplement is Designer Whey protein, especially right after a hard workout. Not only does it contain the protein necessary to rebuild muscle, but it also tastes great. I think everyone should use Designer Whey after working out. You can mix it up with milk or water and ice. Try new recipes until you figure out what tastes best.
So, you may be thinking, “I am not ready to run a marathon yet” or “I am just a beginner.” Well, if you are a beginner and want to lose weight there isn’t a magical potion. People ask me all the time if I have any tips for losing weight. I do! I simply tell them to cut your calories and start moving more. My first month on the Biggest Loser ranch I walked 20 miles a day, ten every morning and ten every night. If you can’t walk due to injury hop in a pool or the ocean and tread water for an hour. Again, there is no crazy secret. It is all discipline and hard work. Wake up every morning and take it one day at a time and the weight will come off. Also, do not get frustrated if the weight comes off slowly. Everybody has a different body and people lose and gain weight at different speeds. Remember, if you keep working and never give up you will reach your goal. It may take 6 months or 4 years, but you will get there.
