"The Biggest Loser" On A Low Carb Diet!

Have you seen "The Biggest Loser" yet? The show where
teams of overweight individuals compete to see who can
lose the most weight?

Well here's a "Biggest Loser" story with a low carb diet

In a story posted by Jimmy Moore in "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb"
one finalist touts a low carb diet plan for weight loss.

Keep reading!

"The Biggest Loser" 2 finalist Kelly Minner, a teacher at
Lehigh Valley Performing Arts School in Bethlehem,
Pennsylvania, lost 102 pounds last year and was approached
by one of her former students about losing weight recently.

An extremely talented young opera singer named Adam
Bonanni weighed as much as 308 pounds at the age of 16
and he thought that was normal since most famous opera
singers are quite large. But, as I recently blogged about
world-class opera singer Richard Margison, that stereotype
is already changing. So Bananni knew he needed help with
his obesity and quick.

How convenient it was for him to have a "big loser" right
there at his school with him! Minner was all too gracious to
help Bananni and taught him everything she learned about
healthy nutrition on the show from the trainers Bob Harper
and Jillian Michaels as well as the tireless work ethic
regarding exercise.

Minner patiently explained to Bananni what good eating
habits were all about by sitting down with him at lunch. This
one-on-one mentoring by Minner helped him realize that
the junk food he was eating was destroying his health and
making him fatter and fatter.

Get this (and I LOVE it!): She recommended Bananni start
eating more high-fiber, LOW-CARB foods along with regular
exercise to help him lose weight. HA! What dietary approach
did she say? NOT low-fat, NOT low-calorie, NOT portion-
control--but rather livin' la vida low-carb! WOO HOO! Can
you believe it?!

Although it wasn't easy for him, Bananni lost an eye-
popping 40 pounds in the first two weeks (the length
of the Induction phase of the Atkins diet) and a
total of 110 pounds in nine months. WOW! He dropped
10 inches off of his waist and finds that his breath support
for his opera singing has vastly improved. His whole life has
changed for the better and it's all because a former "Bigger
Loser" contestant cared enough to pay it forward with her
own success. Perhaps Bananni will have the opportunity to
share what he has learned with someone in the future as well.

There you have it. A low carb diet in the limelight! Nice!
