Biggest Loser Recap: Are you too old to lose weight?

Last night, we were taken on yet another emotional roller coaster as we watched sweet, Southern, firefighter Bobby get knocked off the ranch by his teammates.

I was a bit frustrated by the dramatic introduction of the new teammates. But the so called intruders got their revenge since they (Adrian and Jaron) had lost more weight than those at the ranch. Adrian, however shocked everyone.

To find out her weight loss secret,

Adrian, the rookie, had lost an incredible amount of weight at home and everyone was totally shocked. Turns out that Adrian was only 22 (another shocker), the youngest of the cast, which led to some talk over whether or not she had an unfair advantage over the older contestants. The reason is that she may just have a faster metabolism than everyone else there because your metabolism can slow with age, especially if you have not been exercising and eating right throughout your life. When your metabolism slows you lose lean tissue and there's a corresponding increase of body fat.

Fit's Tip: The best way to combat your metabolism from slowing is to eat right and exercise regularly but it's never too late (or early -- teach your kids from an early age) to start eating right and exercising!

Do you think Adrian had an unfair advantage? Tell me below.
