Heaviest Biggest Loser Contestant Ever Wins; Drops 264 Lbs!

"I’m just freaking out right now!" he gushed after the show. "I lost so much weight ... I'm reborn. I have a new life. Everything that I do and I see and I taste and I feel and I experience is done for the first time."

Ventrella, who now weighs 262 lbs., began as the show's heaviest competitor ever, tipping the scales at 526 lbs.

What is he most proud of? "Fitting in a plane seat!" Ventrella told Us. "Up until almost the end of the season I was flying on two seats!"

With his new $250,000 grand prize, the currently unattached Ventrella said he plans to go to Disney World.

"I’m going to use the money to better my family, better me," he went on. "A lot of this weight was because of debt, and not feeling good about myself and how I look and what’s going on in my life. I'm going to get rid of my student loans, I’m going to help my mom -- I'm going to surprise my mom with that convertible she’s always wanted that I promised her when I was a kid. She had a lime green Mustang convertible when she was younger, and it was a beat-up piece of crap. There was no floor on the bottom! So I’m going to surprise her. She's going to be so excited! She’s my No. 1 fan. She’s my motivation and inspiration."

Moving forward, Ventrella told Us his biggest challenge will be figuring out "what it takes to keep a healthy lifestyle. That's the biggest hurdle."

Being on the show taught him one important lesson: If he didn't lose weight, "I was going to die," he told Us. "It was do-or-die time."

Kim Kardashian is lucky to be in news all the time, despite not having to talk about as far as her professional career is concerned.

Blame it on her super sexy bikini body or her famous tan, but we find Kim to be well turned out every time she appears in the public.

Kim was recently seen in the Elle magazine and Armani Exchange’s Disco Glam party at the A/X boutique in West Hollywood.

She was dripping with sexuality with a black jumpsuit hugging her tight figure and highlighting those toned curves.

The 29 year old reality star who turns on the heat wherever she goes recently admitted that she has lost 10 lbs with the help of right kind of diet, exercise and weight loss supplements.

Kim commented that while earlier she used to have Grande Soy Chai Latte, now she has switched on to healthier options like eggs and oatmeal.

She revealed that she does not deprive herself and often have milkshakes whenever she feels like.

Added to this, she also works out.

Well we hope that Kim’s fitness routine will be an eye opener to those who thinks that stars get fit bodies by starving.

It’s high time people should realize that it’s more important to be healthy and fit rather than thin.

How Much Exercise Prevents Weight Gain?

Losing weight is difficult, and keeping it off may be even harder. So Harvard researchers set out to determine exactly how much physical activity women need in midlife to avoid gaining weight as they age.
The researchers found that an hour of moderate activity a day — including such recreational activities as brisk walking, leisurely bicycling, ballroom dancing and playing with children — prevented women of normal weight from gaining more than five pounds over any three-year period. Half that amount of vigorous activity, like running, jogging or fast biking, will do the trick as well, they said.
Women who got the same amount of exercise but were heavier to start with were not able to avoid gaining weight, however. Neither were women of normal weight who got less than seven hours a week of moderate activity, according to the study, published in the March 24 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.
The average weight gain over the course of the 15-year study, which followed 34,079 healthy women with an average age of 54 at the beginning, was just over five pounds. The researchers did not take diet into account.
“It’s so hard to lose weight and maintain the loss, so whatever weight you are, you should try to stay that weight — that is a success,” said the paper’s lead author, Dr. I-Min Lee, an associate professor of epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health.

How to Lose 20 Pounds in 2 Weeks

A lot of people want to lose weight fast for an event such as a wedding, a reunion or a party. If you find yourself wishing that you were 20 pounds slimmer but don't have a lot of time in which to pull it off, read this article without skipping a single word because I shall review 2 ways in which you can lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks.
If you want to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks you can do it in 2 ways:

1. Go on a juice based detox diet. This kind of diet cleanses your body of toxins and undigested food while providing you with carbs and sugars. Although this diet isn't suitable for a long duration, as a "crash" diet meant to help you lose a lot of weight in a short period of time, it can be extremely effective.

2. It you like working out and can spare the time, you can lose 20 pounds by doing a lot of cardiovascular activity over two weeks. I suggest doing 1 hour aerobic workout for 5 days on each of the 2 weeks. You can jog, power walk, cycle, swim or whatever you like. It you want to play basketball, tennis or take some aerobic classes, that's fine too.

Don't do massive workouts and go on a juice diet simultaneously. If your chose to burn off 20 pounds by exercising you'll need your strength. Reduce the amount of carbs that you consume but eat a lot of vegetables, fruit and protein. Make sure that all your fats are healthy ones like olive oil and canola oil.

Losing 20 Lbs in 2 weeks isn't the easiest thing in the world but if you believe in yourself and are willing to put in a little effort, I'm positive the you can do it.

How many times have you, after a particularly hard day, reached for some chocolate or ice cream? It's common for many people, but for those trying to lose weight, it can be detrimental to their long term success, and most weight-loss programs never even address it.

They focus on choosing healthier foods and exercising more, but they never answer a key question: how can people who have eaten to cope with emotions change their eating habits, when they haven't learned other ways of coping with emotions?

Researchers at Temple's Center for Obesity Research are trying to figure out the answer as part of a new, NIH-funded weight loss study. The new treatment incorporates skills that directly address the emotional eating, and essentially adds those skills to a state-of-the art behavioral weight loss treatment.
