The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson lost 150 pounds on the show, and everyone is raving about the quick weight-loss.
The latest news comes from Frederickson herself, who told People that she limited her diet to 1,600 calories a day and spent six hours a day working out in three months. "Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic in my training to get to the finale," she told People.
Keri Glassman, M.S., R.D., a member of Women's Health's advisory board and a judge on Cook Your Ass Off, talks about how working out for a whopping six hours a day can affect your body.
"1,600 calories a day is what many people need just for their bodies to function normally," says Glassman. By working out for six hours a day, Frederickson was burning anywhere from 1,000 to 3,600 calories, depending on what type of exercises she was doing.
When you have a deficit that big, it's likely impairing everything from cognitive function to immune function to bone strength, says Glassman.
While some athletes may work out six hours a day, they're also making sure to use proper form and refuel properly to stay healthy while maintaining such a demanding physical routine. "If you’re not being monitored perfectly, you could definitely be putting yourself at risk for injury," says Glassman.
A person develops a hernia when tissue or muscle is torn, making a part of the inside area of the body bulge out or protrude. For instance, intestines could break through when the abdominal wall has a tear or is weakened in a particular area. Occasionally, hernias are visible, depending on the location of the hernia and its size. Activities such as lifting things or bending over can make the condition worse. Hernias may often happen in your abdomen, in the middle of the chest, and the hips. However, some hernias can occur in the groin or the upper thighs. Read more
