Study Finds Former Biggest Loser Contestants Can Keep the Weight Off — If They Workout Intensely

Study Finds Former Biggest Loser Contestants Can Keep the Weight Off — If They Workout Intensely
According to a new study, it is possible for former contestants on The Biggest Loser to maintain and even lose more weight after the show — but only if they follow an intense exercise regimen.

The study of 14 former contestants found that those who incorporate at least 80 minutes of moderate activity, such as walking, or 35 minutes of vigorous exercise, like running, into each day are able to avoid regaining the weight.

Those workout requirements are much higher than the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the average American, which advise 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise over seven days.

Kate del Castillo’s Biographical Series “The Day I Met El Chapo” to Debut on Netflix

Kate del Castillo: Netflix

Kate del Castillo and Sean Penn’s meeting with the world’s most wanted drug lord sparked international headlines, and now the former will share her side of the story in a new biographical series. Netflix has announced that “The Day I Met El Chapo: The Kate del Castillo Story” is set to debut on the streaming giant. Executive produced by del Castillo, the three-part series will be available to stream beginning October 20.

Netflix promises that the project will include “never-before-seen footage and exclusive details of what led to the infamous meeting” between del Castillo, Penn, and Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.

“As an actress I’ve been given the opportunity to portray fascinating fictional characters, roles I am very proud of. Now I get the chance to tell my story, my reality, my truth. This project will dive into how it began, why I pursued accepting the rights to the life story of one of the most controversial narco figures and what happened after,” said del Castillo.

The series’ creator and exec producer David Broome (“The Biggest Loser”) added, “I was extremely excited to delve into the craziest ‘life imitating art’ saga I’ve ever heard, a story wrapped around a core of complex social and political issues. I’m honored that Kate gave me the opportunity to tell her truth.”

Carlos Armella (“The Land of Silence”) will direct.

Del Castillo already has a hit at Netflix. The Mexican actress stars in “Ingobernable,” a Spanish-language political drama that centers on a fictional first lady. In series’ first episode, Emilia (del Castillo) asks her husband, President Diego Nava, for a divorce. It’s not long before he’s dead and she’s on the lam, accused of murdering him. The first season follows Emilia’s efforts to flee the government officials tracking her. While she rose to national attention as the President’s wife, Emilia proves that she’s totally badass in her own right. The character has been compared to a female Jason Bourne.

Ingobernable” premiered in March and was renewed for a second season in April.

“It’s been a hard year for me,” del Castillo has said of the El Chapo ordeal and its aftermath. “Of course, it was crazy. Still is. I still can’t go back to Mexico, and legally, I am still working that out, and have charges still.” She explained, “I’m recovering, getting my pieces together again. I’m stronger than I was. I’ve learned so much.”

No Good Deed,” “Weeds,” and “Under the Same Moon” are among del Castillo’s other acting credits.

Kate del Castillo’s Biographical Series “The Day I Met El Chapo” to Debut on Netflix was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
