What Really Happened to The Biggest Losers

The recent article from the New York Times, After 'The Biggest Loser,' Their Bodies Fought to Regain Weight, highlights that 13 out of the 14 contestants regained all the weight they lost within 6 years. The show was shocked and so were the contestants. How could this have happened? Doctors were interviewed and the contestants' metabolisms were measured and it was true that almost all of the contestants metabolisms have declined. Does this make us think that we should just give up on losing weight and living healthier?  No, this should teach us a lesson that there is a right and a wrong way to lose weight. The method in which the contestants lost their weight is not ideal and this is why.
