Rachael Fredericksen, the biggest loser (2014) is an example of what happens when people ignore their body type. I would classify her as:
Endomorphy: 6 (Visceral)
Mesomorphy: 3½ (Muscular)
Ectomorphy: 2½ (Nervous)
Balance: 5 (Orientational (Sensory)
Trunk Index: 1.20 (Area of Thoracic Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)
Height: 63.9 inches
Weight Pattern(pounds @ age): 147 @ 20 – 166 @ 30 -181 @ 40 – 191 @ 50
Simple Temperament Description:
Visceral (Plus) Orientational (Minus) Nervous = SEARCHING FOR UNITY. AVOIDS BOUNDARY, CONVENTION, STATUS QUO AND LIMITATIONS.
This type of person denies self, feels need to constrain self.
They devote themselves to a person or an ideal.
Have an strong need for security.
She most certainly ran out of fat and lost a lot of muscle too. She should not weigh much less than 135 as a professional athlete training for competition. A normal maintenance weight for her should never exceed 157 pounds and maybe 170 if she were pregnant.
She was obviously in it to win it at all costs. The show needs to change its prize structure so that they achieve an ideal athletic weight for their somatotype while competing. There should be several money awards. Send them home at an ideal weight and bring them back in six months and see who comes closest to maintaining their ideal weight.
