What The Biggest Loser’s Alison Sweeney Eats


Hello! How’s it going?

I had a busy morning and have to rush out to my brother’s Christmas concert in 10 minutes. Lunch was the usual random salad mix with an apple and half a Quest bar for dessert. (TJ’s egg white salad on top.)


I’m excited to share this interview opportunity I had with Alison Sweeney.

She is the host of the Biggest Loser and works with Oroweat on their Feed Your Better campaign.

Sweeney was on soap operas before BL and I remember seeing something about her weight in a magazine one time. It’s so hard to be normal weight in Hollywood and under the microscope – I can’t imagine! She lost the weight and now works closely with the contestants losing it on the show. I find all of this fascinating so of course I had to ask her what she’s learned from the show and what does she eat?!

RER:  What is a typical week of workouts for you right now?

Sweeney: I love mixing it up. I’m running to enjoy being outside, hiking with my family, and doing a bunch of strength training work. Soon I’ll be back on the ski slopes and can’t wait to add that to my workout routine.

RER: What did you eat yesterday for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks?

Sweeney: I’m pretty predictable. Every day I have some oatmeal with cinnamon, agave, and blueberries.

For lunch I had grilled chicken with veggies & quinoa. 

For a mid-afternoon snack I had apple slices with almond butter.

For dinner I marinated shrimp that Dave (my husband) grilled over a mixed green salad with apples, avocado and a fig balsamic dressing.

My go-to snack on the go is a handful of almonds.

RER: What is the best thing you learned from working with the Biggest Loser trainers and contestants?

Sweeney: I’m constantly inspired by the contestants and trainers to push myself beyond what I think I can do and to consistently challenge myself. If the contestants can run a marathon, so should I and the same with triathlons, weight training, etc.

RER: What’s your favorite sandwich?

Sweeney: I’m a big fan of a grilled chicken sandwich on Oroweat bread with hummus (instead of mayonnaise) loaded with avocado, cucumber, carrots and lettuce. It’s so fulfilling and has such a great crunch.

Thank you Alison Sweeney!

I just did my easy/lazy side braid and now I need to jam out to get to the Christmas concert. I’ll see you guys later!


Question: In case I can shout out a request during the concert to embarrass my brother – what holiday song should I request?

    I Love Alison Sweeney! I grew up watching Days of Our Lives with my grandma, and now love watching her on BL! She is so sweet and inspirational!

    I grew up watching her on Days of our Lives (don’t judge me please). She is such an inspiration with her weight loss journey and healthy lifestyle.

    I don’t want to sound judgmental here, but you asked ALL THE WRONG QUESTIONS. The right questions:
    1. How long can you keep killing Nick a secret from EJ? Are you going to steal your earring back from little Sierra Brady?
    2. Do you still have feelings for Rafe? Are you worried that EJ and Abigail are going to be the new romantic couple in Salem?
    3. How can a partnership with Kate Roberts work? Will you and Kate end up sending Gabi away to keep her mouth shut about what happened by the river and will Countess W seize the opportunity now that Nick has brought down Mad World cosmetics with one computer virus?
    4. How are you going to be supporting your brother the priest, Father Eric, as he tries to prove that Kristin drugged and raped him and that he didn’t violate his vows? Is he going to end up with Nicole?!
    5. Am I right that this guy currently playing your twin brother Eric Brady is nothing compared to Jensen Ackles?

    Cool interview! I’m always inspired by the contestants on TBL as well. They work out for HOURS so an hour workout is not going to kill me. Plus I have no idea how they eat such few calories and workout that long either. I have a feeling there is a lot we don’t see. I eat pretty much the same breakfast as Ali.
