Biggest Loser: Bernie’s Book

By Carlene Helble-Elite Nutrition Intern

We are sending a big “Congratulations!” to Rebecca’s Nurture Principles speaking partner, Bernie Salazar! He just completed Monstercise, his first children’s book, which hits stores in 2011.  In an interview with Extra Bernie said “It’s about getting America’s children nice and healthy using their imagination, playing a lot more.” See his interview and get inspired to get you and your little ones moving!

We can’t wait to see more and hope you keep a look out for it in 2011!

Speaking on a Big Stage

Yes, it’s true. Public speaking is feared more than death. Now, for me, I come alive on a stage. But don’t get me wrong. I’m really nervous and want to puke up until I hear the “Please welcome…”

In two weeks, my speaking partner and I, Bernie Salazar (NBC’s Biggest Loser Season 5 at-home winner) will be headed to New Orleans for some shrimp po’ boys and a major talk with families living with hemophilia.

Eat Like Bernie: Southwest Turkey Burger with Avocado

Hey, hey! Bernie Salazar here… I’m so excited to share this video blog with you on one of my favorite foods I’ve been eating since losing 130 pounds on The Biggest Loser, The Amazing Avocado!

Watch me turn one of my old meals – burger and fries – into a delicious and nutritious Southwest Turkey Burger.

I love the creamy texture of avocados on my burger. Three slices have only 50 calories! Find out how else I incorporate avocados into my well-balanced eating plan in this video. Then, leave a comment and tell me how you like your avocado

Tune In to Biggest Loser and Look for Bernie

Chances are if you have “discovered” my website, you may have done a search on “The Biggest Loser” and found my post on the science behind the biggest loser diet or one of the other gagillion posts I wrote about the show.

Well, I’m asking you to tune in today May 5th, 2009 to watch me on the show! Hahahahaha…. just kidding…. I wish! But… you will watch Bernie Salazar and several other previous contestants. I have no idea how long Bernie will be on, but it will be great to see him doing his thing.

Only now, what’s even more great is that I can proudly call him my collaborator and more importantly — friend. We met doing some volunteer work on The Hill for physical education in schools and we just bonded – big time.

After many conversations and discussions about health, life, wellness, and sharing all our honest, personal stories about struggle and change, we felt a “calling” to do something and share our experiences with the world – and several months later – The Nurture Principles was born!
