‘Biggest Loser’ Trainers Are Stress Eaters

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Even the super fit trainers on The Biggest Loser indulge in some guilty pleasure eating.

Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper may lead a life of healthy eating and exercise, but that doesn’t mean they don’t pig out on some naughty snacks, especially when they’re stressed out.

Harper admits he can never pass up on chocolate and peanut butter, especially when they are paired together.

He says, “It’s what I reach for when [producer] Mark [Koops] is driving me crazy. It’s what I want all the time.”

Though Michaels also feels the urge to chomp on chocolate, she satisfies her stress cravings with fine wine, and she’s not ashamed at all.

She jokes, “For me, wine is now a health food. It’s no longer a guilty pleasure. It has anti-oxidants in it. I need it, especially for my mental health.”

The new season of The Biggest Loser premieres tonight (Jan. 6) on NBC.
