June 4, 2016

I was watching “Beyond the Tank” on TV last week. For those of you who are not familiar with that show, it is a followup to “Shark Tank” and looks at how businesses that the Sharks invested in are doing months later. This episode focused on Mission Belt company and described how the business grew and the product improved. I was impressed enough that I bought one of the belts and love it.

This got me thinking about some other shows and what happened after the winner was crowned. We all have seen the stars that have been made on “American Idol” and “The Voice” and the success some of them have had, but do you have any idea what happened after a couple years to the winners on health-related shows like “Biggest Loser”? When I went looking, I found that some of these contestants had returned to their former physical conditions and then some. This is why our fitness expert Dr Sheri Colberg wants us to look for the Biggest Maintainer and not the Biggest Loser.
