‘The Biggest Loser‘ hostess Alison Sweeney is surrounded by people trying to reach her weight loss goals on a daily basis, as well as being close friends with some of the top trainers. The mother of two shared some of her past diet struggles with the new issue of Good Housekeeping.
On her past diets: “I would just complain about my weight and then go and eat a pint of ice cream. And I had tried everything — the shakes, the cabbage-soup diet. I did a cleanse one time too. When you’re buying bigger jeans, you realize what’s happening and it’s not a good feeling. I finally said to myself, I’m not buying another size. I’m going to make these jeans work. I’m going to figure it out.”
On keeping weight off: “It’s easy to feel like, I did it, and now I’m going to go and eat a piece of cake. What’s wrong with extreme dieting and hard-core fitness plans is that they don’t take into account the rest of your life. What are you going to do next?”
On the Biggest Loser competitors motivating her: “When I’m tired and feeling lazy, I think, If they can do it, so can I.”
On date night with her husband: “I don’t have to try hard [for David]. I can be in sweats and no makeup and relax, and it’s good.”
