With the next season of Ten reality weight-loss show The Biggest Loser just around the corner, host and former contestant, Fiona Falkiner has said viewers can expect a new and improved formula. She says the show is now less about weight-loss and more about a healthy mentality.
“It is not based on the numbers on the scale, but it is focusing on the mindset and getting contestants to realise its not about losing the weight but it’s about really prioritising yourself and the stumbling blocks that lead up to weight gain,” Falkiner told the Wentworth Courier last week.
“It gives them the tools to cope with weight loss,” she added.
The Biggest Loser faced a huge amount of criticism and backlash for its weight-loss tactics in recent years, with former contestants and trainers speaking out about the unsustainability of the training.
