Despite criticism from The Biggest Loser viewers for losing too much weight, Rachel Frederickson says she did it in a healthy way and she's proud of it.

The 24-year-old was crowned The Biggest Loser winner Tuesday night after going from 260 pounds to 105 pounds, a stunning loss of 155 pounds.

That's 60 percent of her weight going in, and given her 5'5" height, Rachel Frederickson was criticized by many watching (and tweeting) for being anorexic.

She, however, is not paying attention to this.

Rachel insists that she makes "super healthy" choices, and eats no more than 1,600 calories a day that includes a combination of carbs, fat and protein.

"I worked out a ton," she said on a media conference call. "I followed the advice and supervision of the medical team at The Biggest Loser the entire journey."

"I'm extremely proud of the way I lost the weight," Rachel continued. "It's okay to have your own path and be different ... it's been pretty empowering."

Meanwhile, Biggest Loser trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper, who were noticeably stunned Tuesday, broke their silence on Rachel's weight loss.

Fans weren't the only ones shocked by The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson's weight loss. Jillian Michaels herself was at a loss for words.

The personal trainer appeared flabbergasted by Frederickson's 155-pound weight loss (from 260 to 105) on the show's season 15 finale on Tuesday.

When the 24-year-old former high school swimmer walked out onstage for the first time since leaving the ranch last fall ... this was Jill's reaction:

Michaels could be seen mouthing "Oh my God" after looking at Rachel Frederickson. Several times, in fact, before NBC's camera panned away.

Shrinking from 260 pounds and a size 20 to 105 pounds and a size 0/2, she beat fellow finalists David Brown and Bobby Saleem for the $250,000 prize.

"It's crazy!" the 5-foot-4 reality star said. "But it's not about that. [My body] is absolutely the prize ... to have this energy and to feel alive means the world."

"I lost that athlete, I lost that inner confidence, that self-worth. Throughout the season I started to find that girl again, and at the triathlon, [she] was there.

Rachel Frederickson, 24, won The Biggest Loser and the NBC show's $250,000 grand prize Tuesday night. By definition, The Biggest Loser lost a ton of weight.

Some are saying too much weight. The Biggest Loser winner promptly sparked criticism from viewers who say the show went too far by allowing this.

Frederickson started the competition at 260 pounds and lost 155 pounds, or almost 60 percent of her body weight. The stats speak for themselves:

Last night, Frederickson appeared dramatically and surprisingly thinner than the last time viewers saw her, even by The Biggest Loser standards.

Trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels seemed to be clapping in slow motion as they looked Rachel over, their eyes appearing to reflect shock.

Rachel, a competitive high school swimmer, gave up a college scholarship to follow a boyfriend to Europe, then ate her way through their breakup.

Earlier in the season, Frederickson said that winning the show would allow her to reclaim the champion within and embrace an empowered new future.

She echoed that theme last night, but did she go too far?

On The Biggest Loser, losing is winning, and winning big.

With a $250,000 prize on the line, three very contestants took to the scale one last time Tuesday on the finale of the popular, inspirational program.

Bobby Saleem, 28, epitomized the "second chances" theme of the 15th season of the NBC weight-loss competition as the biggest at-home loser.

Rachel Frederickson, a 24-year-old voice-over artist from L.A., and David Brown, a 42-year-old project manager from Edmond, Okla., also made the finals.

So who finally emerged victorious?

Simply put, as defined by Urban Dictionary, it is takes place when "bikini bottoms are suspended between the two hip bones, causing a space between the bikini and the lower abdomen."

Former Jersey Shore star Snooki pulls no punches in her new book Baby Bumps about media coverage of celebrities who are pregnant and/or new parents.

  1. Yes, Snooki wrote a book and it's called that.
  2. She cites Kim Kardashian as an example.

Speaking about the coverage she received in 2012, she writes, "tabloid monitoring of how fast women lose the baby weight is practically a blood sport."

"Some women have been mocked cruelly for it," she adds.
