Drew Carey will not keep that weight off
TV personality Drew Carey has lost a bunch of weight.
Here's a nickel that says he puts it all back on in the next 18 months.
He had the proverbial wake-up call and got down and dirty with a trainer and eating right and blah blah blah. He's losing three pounds a week and has gotten into such great shape that he was able to run a 10K for the first time in ages.
He celebrated by eating a whole pizza.
Which is the basis of my nickel bet.
There's such a thing as doing something too fast. That's why I hate The Biggest Loser series and the Biggest Loser approach. It is not anything that can be sustained.
Losing three pounds a week cannot be sustained.
Plunging into serious, heavy, daily exercise cannot be sustained.
People who want to get to a more desirable weight need to adopt behaviors, both nutritionally and in terms of exercise, that can be sustained for the long haul Otherwise, it just ain't gonna work.
All of the numbers and all of the studies show that this is true. And putting Drew Carey on the cover of Parade magazine and suggesting, therefore, that this strategy can work, will not help anyone except Drew Carey, for now, and Parade magazine.
