‘Biggest Loser’ adds Lisle native Jennifer Widerstrom

June 30 5 p.m.

Jennifer Widerstrom, a Lisle native and graduate of Naperville North High School, will replace Jillian Michaels as a trainer on NBC’s weight-loss show “Biggest Loser,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

“Biggest Loser” isn’t wasting any time in naming its replacements for uber trainer Jillian Michaels, who revealed late last week she would not be returning to the NBC weight-loss competition show.

And, one of the replacements has Chicago ties. West suburban Lisle native Jennifer Widerstrom will be one of the two newbies helping contestants drop the pounds and possibly go home with the $250,000 grand prize. TV viewers might better know Widerstrom as Phoenix from her days on NBC’s “American Gladiators.” She is also the lead female trainer for Inter-Continental Hotel Group’s recently debuted Even wellness line. A onetime gymnast who started competing at age 7, Widerstrom did gymnastics at Naperville North. Her mom, Lynn Widerstrom was her coach. Widerstrom told muscleandfitness.com that she first started lifting weights with her dad.

    I do not remember actually watching an episode of the biggest loser from beginning to end. I think that more success stories may be produced by the show.While it is true that healthy weight loss may lead a person to get a certain appearance. It really seems that advantages may go beyond. I have read that losing weight may be beneficial for conditions like diabetes, painful knees, blood pressure and of course obesity. I share more about this subject on the page: specialfatloss.comThere you may also find a link to a video that introduced me to a reason why weight loss may be different for males and females. It was a phenomenon, I was not aware of.With that being said, I don't believe that a diet should lead you to feel depressed because you should never eat delicious and lawful food again. Is there any benefit in a diet that may be impossible to follow long term?
