First ‘Biggest Loser’ Winner Talks of Struggles After Gaining Back Weight

Published

on

Ryan Benson, the first ever winner of reality show “The Biggest Loser” in 2004, has reportedly gained back all the pounds he lost and then some. It can be recalled that Ryan dropped from 330 pounds to 208 pounds at the final weigh-in, which led him to win the contest. However, his current weight is not something to be proud of at 332 pounds.

The Biggest Loser and The Big Fat Truth

In an exclusive report by TooFab, Ryan admitted that he immediately gained 15 to 20 pounds after the end of “The Biggest Loser” season he was in. And somehow, the weight steadily climbed up from there.

“I had really gotten to a place where I felt pissed off a lot and angry and just kinda down,” Benson recalled of his weight struggle.

Looking back at his time in the show, Benson said that although “The Biggest Loser” is dubbed as a “reality” show, it is completely different from real life experience.

Ryan recalls, “You’re away from your family, you’re working out 6-7 hours a day, cameras are around you 24/7, so you’re not going to overeat. In my season, they used to have temptations, donuts all around the house, fresh pies. When the camera’s on you, you’re not going to eat a donut because that’s the first thing they’re going to put on the show.”

Benson also felt that the biggest downside of the show is that it is a competition – “I think inherently that it’s a contest, it’s going to be tough,” he said.

“Some people take away from it and are great, other people leave it and the weight comes back on but the fact that it’s a contest, you’re never really going into it for – at least, I’m speaking for myself—I never went into it for the fact of lose weight and change my life, I was like I gotta win this thing. That’s what made it not lasting for me because it was a contest,” he added.
