Know Your Visceral Limit
Maurice, the self-proclaimed "overweight lover" from the first season, adored country-fried chicken so much so that he ate it by the bucket load, an indulgence that helped account for his 436 pounds. When stripped away from his beloved drumsticks, he had the withdrawal symptoms of a drug fiend. His 2,000-calories-a-day ranch diet seemed fit for pigeons compared with his usual amount of grub. Trainer Bob taught Maurice how to identify when he's sated. Instead of using the marker of being uncomfortably full, he learned to listen to his body and put down his fork when he's no longer hungry. The lesson: Don't just taste the food; think about it too. Be completely conscious and aware of every bite at mealtime.
