‘The Biggest Loser’ Is Heavy On Drama

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The new host of The Biggest Loser is serving up audiences – and contestants – a big plate of understanding.

Alison Sweeney, who’s starred on Days of our Lives since 1993, says it was her own struggles with the scale that helped her sympathize with each contestant’s crisis.

Sweeney says, “I’ve struggled with weight my whole life. If you don’t have perfect metabolism, it’s always a struggle. And in Hollywood, it’s a very different ratio about what’s the right body size.”

Sweeney says she never faced pressure from Days producers to shed weight for her role – instead, she dropped the pounds with perseverence and persistence that should have Loser contestants cheering.

She says, “I tried everything, every fad diet. Then I started setting healthy goals for myself, and it ended up making a real difference with my weight.”
