Biggest Loser® Contestants Lose Over 1,000 lbs at Home While on The Biggest Loser Meal Plan by eDiets

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) -, Inc. (NASDAQ: DIET) -- On The Biggest Loser Ranch, contestants have personal trainers, doctors, nutritional experts and healthy food at their fingertips. However, the transition from the ranch back to their normal lives can be a huge challenge for these contestants. Over the last two seasons, 24 of "The Biggest Loser" contestants, including 5 finalists and one $250,000 grand prize winner, have made that transition easier with the help of The Biggest Loser Meal Plan by eDiets, losing a total of over 1,000 pounds at home with a combination of exercise and The Biggest Loser Meal Plan's healthy, delicious, home-delivered meals. The Biggest Loser Meal Plan is licensed by NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group and Reveille LLC, and JTMG serves as the agency of record for NBC programming.

The convenience of having the nutritious, calorie-controlled meals delivered to their door is a significant benefit for these contestants. "I don't have to stare at my cabinets trying to figure out what to eat. I don't have to weigh food or measure," said Season 10 winner, Patrick. "It's quick, it's simple, it's awesome, and I know exactly the nutrition that I'm putting into my body." Patrick lost 60 pounds at home while on The Biggest Loser Meal Plan.

Vance and LeAnn Jackson, the Season 11 mother and son team who were sent home in the very first episode, have proven that you can lose significant weight at home by following a regular exercise program and getting the right nutrition. "The food from The Biggest Loser Meal Plan has been an amazing tool in my tool belt," said Vance. LeAnn agreed: "We are proof that you can do it at home. The nice thing is that The Biggest Loser Meal Plan meals help me make it work in my life." They have each lost over 60 pounds while on The Biggest Loser Meal Plan without ever being on the ranch.

Hannah, one of this season's finalists, said, "For someone who's just starting their program, for people who may not know what a proper portion is, this meal plan is a great tool because it teaches you that you can really be satisfied and have things that are good for you. The Biggest Loser Meal Plan shows that anyone can do this -- you can eat it with your husband, you can eat it as a single person -- I'm very pleased."

The season finale airs on May 24th at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on NBC.

Success depends on following diet guidelines. See for details. Generally expected weight loss for active meal plan members is 1.8 lbs/week during the first 5 weeks.
