Bob is looking forward to his visit to East Texas for Women's Nigth Out and we had a chance to ask Bob a couple of questions:
You just wore a ‘three on one off’ shirt; what does this mean? Is this something new you are promoting?
In CrossFit, we promote working out 3 days and then take one rest day.
How long do you plan on being on Biggest Loser?
Well I have been on for all 14 seasons so I guess I'm gonna stick around for a while longer. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and still have a passion for it. It's important to keep that drive in your profession.
What’s your next step in life?
I have a follow up book from my NY Times Bestseller, The Skinny Rules, called Jumpstart to Skinny. It the plan that is gonna get you ready for that big event like a wedding, class reunion or other special event. I'm also concentrating on my photography. Being a photographer is a big passion of mine.
What was your aha moment when it all clicked – being in shape, eating well, not craving junk?
Day one of shooting season one of the biggest loser. When I saw my team of people that desperately needed my help, I knew that this was what I was meant to do.
What is the worst thing that someone can eat?
So many things but the first thing that popped into my mind was ice cream.
What is your favorite food of all time – your Last Supper?
I love Italian food!!
What do you see as an unhealthy fad right now that’s being touted as a healthy fad?
I'm not a big fan of the master cleanse. Any weight that you lose will surely come back on.
Favorite running shoes?
I don't run a lot anymore. I'm always wearing the Reebok Nanos and I also like a new balance low profile running show.
Favorite workout machine?
An Olympic bar and a rower.
Mantra that we can repeat to ourselves every day as we are starting to work out and facing quitting?
Believe in yourself. Trust the process. Change forever.
