Rachel Frederickson: I Work Out Four Times a DAY!

by at . Comments

When Rachel Frederickson left The Biggest Loser ranch, her goal was to keep the weight off and then some. She succeeded, to put things mildly.

Returning to the show 45 lbs. lighter than she left it, for a total weight loss of 155 lbs., the spotlight is now focused on whether she is too skinny.

Currently a size 0/2 and 105 lbs., Rachel Frederickson herself briefly addressed the controversy that has erupted following her amazing transformation.

"First and foremost, my goals are to be healthy and strong," the former competitive swimmer said about the backlash her slender frame has caused.

"I'm an athlete," she added. "I've been an athlete since I was a little girl. And I went on The Biggest Loser journey to find that confidence that I lost."

Asked about her diet and exercise regimen, The Biggest Loser winner said:

"I just continued to follow the support system that I had from The Biggest Loser's [diet] plan, Dr. Cheryl's nutritional advice and ... continued to eat super healthy."

Citing several recipes from the Ranch, she said egg white French toast and an egg white, spinach, tomato and mushroom omelet are her "go-to breakfasts."

At the same time, she's taking "maybe three, four classes a day" at the gym. "I even went home over the holidays to Minnesota, and I went running outside."

Reiterating that she is in "maintenance mode," she said she was excited for "this next part of my journey, as my body balances and, you know, it finds its rhythm."

Will she tone it down? Possibly, she says: "It's going to be about finding, maybe doing a yoga class this day, a gym class this day and I even, I think I'm going to try dance classes."

The Biggest Loser trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper have declined to address the firestorm surrounding Frederickson and her body this week.

Her trainer, Dolvett Quince, spoke out, saying, "Rachel's health is and always has been my main concern and her journey to good health has not yet ended!"

Interesting wording there. Asked whether she felt she was now at a "healthy and sustainable" weight on Tuesday, Frederickson replied, "absolutely."

Do you agree? Vote below: Is Rachel Frederickson now too thin?


And Jillian and Bob's silence speaks volumes and that fact that her trainer said her journey to good health is still in progress basically means - now Rachel isn't healthy she took it too far and we need to get her back on track. I really think all 3 trainers spoke to her but are keeping it private and professional.


Truthfully none of these weights seem good. She should have stopped somewhere between photo 2 and the most recent one. She looks like she lost 40 pounds from the time of the make overs. I think if she would have just lost 20 pounds and then stopped she would have been perfect. She needs to gain at least 10 pounds - but ideally 20- she'd be perfect if she was 125.


It's so cool she lost that much


It's cool she lost that much.


Yup as I said she could be classified as having a problem. Based on what I know, its called Anorexia Athleta. It is the opposite of Anorexia Nervosa, where the person actually doesn't stop eating, they just work out WAY too much, and become extremely fearful of gaining the weight back. working out 4 times a day is completely unnecessary! And again, her BMI is really low for her height and weight, she does have a problem and needs to fix it.
