The Biggest Loser at your library

I know most people have heard of “The Biggest Loser” reality show, where the contestants compete against each other in the battle of the bulge. The contestants ultimately lose weight and win money. The show also boasts a variety of books and DVDs to help the at-home audience get healthy and shed pounds. The Summit County Libraries have a great selection of Biggest Loser products in their collection.

We have “The Biggest Loser: The Weight Loss Program to Transform Your Body, Health and Life.” This is a great beginning to any weight loss journey with helpful information about being more healthy and active. “The Biggest Loser Simple Swaps: 100 Easy Changes to Start Living a Healthier Lifestyle,” my favorite, gives you healthy alternatives to your old high-calorie choices. “The Biggest Loser 30-Day Jump Start” actually gives you the menus, recipes and exercises to help get you started losing weight and living healthier.

I also have personally tried several of the DVDs in the collection; my favorite is “The Biggest Loser, the Workout: Power Sculpt,” which has modified exercises for beginners, extra tips to rev up your metabolism – and did I mention it is super fun. The library has other Biggest Loser DVDs to choose from: “Weight Loss Yoga,” “Boot Camp” and “Cardio Max.” The best part of the DVD collection is that you can make your workout more challenging at your convenience.

Summit County Library has added Sony E-readers to the downloadable selections on the website, and has “Master Your Metabolism” by Jillian Michaels, a personal trainer for The Biggest Loser. This book helps the reader understand how the body handles hormones and what you can do to stay healthy. The library also has the companion book “The Master Your Metabolism Cookbook,” which identifies power nutrients and describes how to incorporate those into nutritious recipes for every meal.

At the three Summit County libraries, you have access to a great variety of Biggest Loser books and DVDs that can help you maintain a healthier lifestyle. Best of all, it’s free!
