Weight-Loss Tips and Hints From Biggest Loser Contestants

Zina Garrison

Put yourself first: Biggest Loser has really helped me to understand that I do need to put myself in front of everything else in order to be able to help someone else. I mean it’s kind of like that saying where you say you have to love yourself before you can love anyone else.

Wear a tracker: It helps. I have it on every day. I notice how much steps, how much exercise and that’s kind of keeping me on track. I know it’s keeping me on track.

Exercise for you and the kids: I try to do my workouts at 5:30 or 6 so, earlier in the morning so that whenever my kids get up, I’m already done with that in the morning, and then I do a little walking at night to get my son to wind down, and I think that’s really helped me because he’s going to bed because he’s running around all night.

Make home cooking easy: Grilled fish or grilled chicken — they take the same amount of time to cook, really, when I do it. And spinach salad with just a little bit of vinegar. I love that, I crave that on a daily basis and that is my go-to meal. That food was not on my radar at all before I went to the ranch. As a matter of fact, chicken pasta alfredo with cheesy garlic bread — that was my go-to meal before all this began.
