Biggest Loser's Rachel Frederickson: I Was 'Too Enthusiastic' with Training

Biggest Loser Winner Rachel Frederickson to PEOPLE: I Was 'Too Enthusiastic' with Training

Originally posted 02/12/2014 08:00AM



When Rachel Frederickson revealed her new, size 0-2 figure on the Feb. 4 finale of NBC's The Biggest Loser, she thought she would wow friends, family and viewers – and maybe win the title of Biggest Loser.

She did win, but the 24-year-old voice actress also ignited a firestorm of controversy about her dramatically slimmed-down figure, down to 105 lbs. from her starting weight of 260 lbs. (At 5'4", her height-weight ratio puts her BMI at 18, below the threshold doctors consider normal.)

Sitting down with PEOPLE in Los Angeles, just days after she made headlines for her striking transformation, Frederickson says she maintained a 1,600-calorie daily diet, working out six hours a day in the three months before the finale.

Alison Sweeney: Team USA's Winter Olympians Are Inspirational

Alison Sweeney's Biggest Loser Blog: Meeting Winter Olympic Athletes Was Inspirational

Originally posted 01/15/2014 12:00PM

Alison Sweeney is the host of NBC's The Biggest Loser, the award-winning star of Days of Our Lives, and author of The Star Attraction and The Mommy Diet. She's also a director, producer, wife and mom. Like she has for the past three seasons, Alison will blog each week about the latest episode of The Biggest Loser. Follow her on Twitter: @Ali_Sweeney.

Are you all getting excited for the Winter Olympics? I have to say, the week we spent in Park City, Utah, was so incredible. To meet the athletes, to see where they are training and to watch their intensity and focus was inspirational. I personally loved meeting the U.S. Women's Curling Team and the U.S. Women's Bobsled Team and I loved traveling with the contestants, trainers and the Biggest Loser crew.

As much as the travel week is nerve-wracking for contestants, I could tell it was also reinvigorating for them. During the challenge, when the contestants started curling, it was pure comedy but they quickly got into their competitive spirit – Jay wanting to not win and have a greater target on his back and the rest wanting to win the $5000 prize. The competition was so exciting and Rachel coming from nowhere to win was particularly impressive. You have to give Rachel credit – she's willing to put the target on her back to keep focused on the life-changes and competition instead of the game play.

Michael J. Fox Mines His Parkinson's Disease for Laughs on New NBC Show

Originally posted 08/13/2013 01:30PM

Can Parkinson's disease be funny?

Michael J. Fox, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1991, sure thinks so.

"I have challenges that come with Parkinson's but my experience is to deal with things through humor," he explains in a first look at his much-anticipated new NBC show.

The Michael J. Fox Show stars Fox, 52, as Mike Henry, a family-oriented New York news anchor who quits after his Parkinson's diagnosis. But much like the real-life Fox, Henry eventually decides to get back to work – although he doesn't want to make a big deal about it.

Michael J. Fox at Center of NBC's Fall Lineup

Originally posted 05/13/2013 03:15PM

Advertisers were given their first big glimpse of the fall TV schedule Monday as NBC launched the annual Upfront Week in Manhattan. The upfronts are lavish (and longish) network presentations staged for the ad community with the hope of vacuuming up all their money with the promise of great, popular shows.

The truth is, of course, that few shows manage to be great and/or popular. One could even call this a sad truth.

But, to be philosophical, nothing ventured, nothing gained – and NBC could use some gaining. After applying advanced critical theorem to the brief clips presented at Radio City Music Hall, I would say these shows showed the most potential:
