Former contestants on the Biggest Loser have sensationally claimed staff from the NBC show fed them drugs to help them keep the pounds off, according to a report.
The New York Post reported that ex ‘Losers’ they were allegedly given illicit medication to help them lose weight as part of the brutal tactics carried out off screen.
They were also allegedly told to lie about their weight loss and underwent questionable medical examinations.
A source from the show told the Post the series is ‘corrupt’, claiming that fitness trainer Bob Harper and his assistant were giving contestants Adderall.
However Harper strongly denies the allegations saying ‘safety is paramount in my training regimen’.
They also said the participants were given ‘yellow jackets’ or pills that contain Ephedra, a drug that was banned by the FDA in 2004.
It follows the publication of a National Institute of Health study that found 14 former contestants all put weight back on rapidly after the show finished.
Suzanne Mendonca, who appeared on Season 2, told the newspaper: ‘People were passing out in Dr. H’s office at the finale weigh-in.
‘On my season, five people had to be rushed to the hospital. He knew exactly what we were doing and never tried to stop it.’
She added: ‘People would take amphetamines, water pills, diuretics, and throw up in the bathroom.
‘They would take their spin bikes into the steam room to work up a sweat. I vomited every single day. Bob Harper tells people to throw up: “Good,” he says. “You’ll lose more calories.”‘
Harper denied the allegations telling the Daily Mail Online: ‘These allegations are absolutely false and are in direct conflict with my lifelong devotion to health and fitness.
‘Safety is paramount in my training regimen and, while demanding, my approach has always focused on the overall well-being of contestants as they lose significant weight and educate themselves, for the first time, on living a healthy lifestyle.’ – DailyMail
