    *Biggest Loser* at work

    Shop Now
    My company is going to be starting a Biggest Loser competition next week.
    They just announced this today.

    I'm planning on going completely primal for this period of time(hopefully forever) to see what happens.
    This works out because I wanted to go primal, and now i have some extra motivation.

    Here are the Stips:
    - 8 weeks long starting May 10th
    - Measure total percentage of weight lost
    - Weight is measured weekly
    - Whomever loses the most percentage of weight wins

    - $10 buy in
    - 1st place gets 60% of total funds raised
    - 2nd gets 25%
    - 3rd gets 15%

    There isn't any sort of diet or fitness plan, they are just going to let people do there own thing.

    I figured if at least 20 people join it, and I win first prize, that'll be a nice chunk of change just for losing some weight.

    What do you guys think?

    You should go for it...when you win, you can tell them ALL about PB and they might actually listen since you beat them!

    That's what i was thinking. If i Win I could really have some leverage, and change some peoples minds about dieting.

    The part about this kind of measurement that disturbs me is that there is no differentiation made between fat lost and muscle lost. Regardless, go primal and be healthy. Just be aware that your coworkers *may* be shredding muscle and fat and end up beating you on such a simplistic measurement.

    My company did this last year. In addition to the other recommendations, I suggest you eat nothing but pasta and bread for every meal up until the first weigh-in. There's a good chance you can pack on two or three more pounds just before the competition starts!

    I'm tempted to do this. No warning, but my company is starting this on Feb 1st. I'm 5'5", and can weigh anywhere from 126 to 130 on a given day. It lasts for 6 weeks and they say they are measuring with a body fat percentage scale (which is BS if you ask me). I just posted some pics in the success stories thread if anyone would like to see. It's reeaallly coming down to those last 10-15lbs, and sometimes I feel like I am plateauing HARD. $50 to enter and 8 people in so far.. What to do... what to do...

    We're doing this over the course of deployment within the aircrew in my squadron. I agree that just weight is very simplistic, and body fat % reduction would be better, but most people only understand the scale.

    I say go for it and whoop them all.
