Rachel Frederickson is telling a lie.. she must have used green coffee beans to have lost all that weight – I used to be overweight myself too :)

She is DEFINITELY too thin. But if I was trying to win that much money, I would overdo it too! I’m sure she’ll put a few pounds on now that the competition is over…

I’m making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $65 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I’m my own boss. This is what I do…

The thing is, when she stood next to Alison Sweeney it’s the first time I thought Alison looked fat! She’s always seemed so healthy and skinny until she stood next to that bag of bones……Rachel is definitely thinspiration!!! That’s why she is now on MULTIPLE pro ana sites…..but ya sure keep saying its jealousy….what would you say if she died? She said her life will be perfect…..typical talk of disordered anorexia thinking……

i know what this woman is going through. i too was at an unhealthy 195 for my 5’1 frame and went to my lowest weight at 95 lbs and buff. i to this day do not know what jump started my weight loss, as i lost 40 lbs in 40 days during the 40 day span between mardi gras and easter. (iam thinking it was divine intervention and i am from new orleans where we live to eat, not eat to live). i also worked in a chinese restaurant where it was like working out. i carried very heavy, large trays of food and since time is of the essence, i would actually run. my point is, i was told by A LOT of people that knew me when i was heavy and they thought i had cancer! i got checked for everything and my doc even said he didn’t know what happened because all of my blood work was bull’s eye target and i was his healthiest patient. he said it was a medical anomoly.this is the best i have ever felt! he also said that i was too thin by medical means, but that if i felt great to continue doing what i’m doing. good for this girl! i know how she feels and people need to stop being so critical of others because of what they LOOK like. what about how she FEELS? doesn’t that matter to anyone? it would take waaaay too long to explain what happened to me, but it was ALL positive. i no longer have the medical problems i once did. they are all gone. i am 35 and in better shape now than when i was in my teens and 20′s!! and guess what too? i am also a smoker….try and figure that one out! people should be supporting and encouraging her. god bless her and more power to her!!

It’s absolutely ridiculous how judgmental our society has become. You’re too fat, you’re too skinny, you’re too tall, you’re too short, etc. . . . Let’s think about it. The show began because of lifestyles that led to obese individuals. Now they’re mad because she is too skinny. How about we just accept people for who they are? Everyone out there that have a flaw, stop living for everyone else’s opinion and live for yourself. Just remember, everyone has a flaw and those that keep telling you that you need to change, have the biggest flaws of all. It’s easy to keep eyes off of them when they continue to have everyone focus on you.

This shows that the BMI calculations are also off as a guide. Rachel’s loss is .5 off of what is considered normal. If she was 5 pounds heavier she would be in the normal range. Whe. You loose weight programs tell you to loose 5 to 10 pounds more than your ideal weight. Rachel did just that. David doesn’t look any less gaunt than Rachel. A drastic transformation is just that- a drastic change!

❤▌▌▌▌▌ I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, ➨➨➨➨➨➨➨➨ C­H­E­C­K­4­­4.­­ℭ­­Oℳ

Those “WTF” faces. Can’t deny that she doesn’t look much better, but at what cost, I guess the long term benefits outweigh any short term negatives.

She looks great. We have just gotten used to seeing people unhealthy overweight. If you look at photos from the 60′s and 70′s the people look about this weight and fit and healthy. She looks healthy!

I’ve lost over 60 pounds myself and am 5 inches shorter than Rachel and as I got down to my minimum on weight watchers which was 104, I was put on probation and told I had to stop losing and maintain. I eventually quit and entered maintenance on my own. At that time I was told by everyone I looked unhealthy and looking back at photos I agree. I now weigh 130 and can’t seem to ever lose a pound, but I am thin and very muscular as my maintenance has been working out including lifting and Julian mic heals videos of course! Rachel most likely did this for the money as it’s quite possible when you only eat 1500 calories a day and work out twice a day for three hours. Hopefully she knows she looks unhealthy and will gain some weight post show.

I’d like to say that if you look at the “game” aspect of the show a female may HAVE to lose an unhealthy amount of weight to win. Rachel seems like an intelligent and competitive young woman, my guess she chose to go as low as possible to take home the prize and will get back to a healthy size after the show. Look at how she was able dominate the game week to week, it would have sucked to NOT win due to the advantage the BIG men have in their 300-400lb starting weight. So essentially she did the math and committed to winning, hopefully America will support her path to health now that the game is over…and biggest loser take a look at your rules/prgm make adjustments so that you are measuring health rather than a # on a scale!

Rachel was a nationally-ranked athlete who was VERY thin before she gained her weight. The doctor in the video shown during the finale told her she was at a BMI = 19…and that losing 5 more pounds would put her at an athlete’s weight. At 5’4″, a BMI of 19 is about 110 lbs; losing 5 pounds => 105 pounds and a BMI = 18 (at 107.5, she would have been “normal,” per the charts, instead of “underweight”). I’m pretty sure the doctor wasn’t admonishing her for her size, so what gives anyone else the right?

Her BMI wasn’t 19, her percent body fat was, and with that percent body fat she was around 150 when the doctor told her.

I totally agree. There should be disqualification rules for losing too much weight. She wasn’t beaming like the other contestants. She looked sick. Poor thing. I hope she finds a balance.
