'Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show' Episode 105: Part 1 Of My Chat With 'The Biggest Loser' Bill Germanakos

Meet Season 4 winner of "The Biggest Loser" Bill Germanakos

In case you didn't know it, I'm a pretty HUGE fan of the hit NBC-TV weight loss reality show "The Biggest Loser" because it has transcended and penetrated our culture unlike any other show in television history to get them excited about losing weight and getting healthy. Sure, there are critics who believe the hours of exercise the contestants go through is unrealistic in the real world and that the nutrition plan promoted by the show adheres to the typical low-fat dietary approach that has failed so many. But you certainly can't argue with the results.

I'm pleased to share with you in Episode 105 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore" today an interview I conducted this weekend with the grand prize winner of $250,000 from Season 4 of "The Biggest Loser" Bill Germanakos. Bill was as humble and grateful during my interview with him as he appeared on television last Fall. You can hear in his voice a sense of excitement about what has happened to him and he's ready for whatever may come his way now that he's got his life back!

Bill Germanakos started his journey on "The Biggest Loser" weighing in at 334 pounds. He went on to lose a total of 164 pounds to be crowned the fourth winner of "The Biggest Loser" and take home a quarter of a million dollars cash! Even more importantly, he now has opportunities to share about how he was able to change his life forever and stands ready to embrace them to help others in their journey. When you lose as much weight as Bill and I have, you can't wait to share about it with others.

In Part 1 of my interview with Bill Germanakos, he discusses what kind of changes have happened to him since losing the weight, shares what it was like being on "The Biggest Loser" with his twin brother Jim, speaks fondly of his love and admiration for The Black Team trainer Jillian Michaels, and tells his honest thoughts about what fellow contestant Neil did to manipulate the game in a strategy to win (that didn't work).
