Over the past week, The Biggest Loser's winner Rachel Frederickson has maintained that she's perfectly healthy after she revealed a shocking 155 pound weight loss on the show's finale!
However, in a recent interview she admitted that she may have gone a bit too far with her training regimen!
Rachel says in the three months leading up to the live finale she maintained a diet of 1,600 calories and worked out a total of 6 hours a day!! She says:
"Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic in my training to get to the finale."
When asked about her eating habits, Rachel says she's "very, very healthy" despite her extreme exercise routine!
The show's executive producer Dave Broome says her health was monitored throughout the season as well as the three months leading up to the finale and she passed every test with flying colors!
Rachel's trainer Dolvett Quince previously spoke out in support of her weight loss, however, even he admits he was a bit shocked when he first saw her:
"The first thing that went through my mind was, 'That's just too much.'"
As we've pointed out before, standing at 5'4", Rachel's new 105 pound frame is technically 18 pounds below what doctor's consider healthy for her size and it definitely sounds like she was pushing herself a bit too hard leading up to the finale.
Hopefully Rachel manages to find a way to hold on to all of the healthy habits she picked up on the show while also giving herself a little break from her extreme training!
