In November, 2005, Pete Thomas walked away from the finale of NBC's The Biggest Loser a winner - and a loser. The prize he won was $100,000 for losing the most weight of all the contestants that season. What he lost was 185 pounds in only nine short months ... and with it an unhealthy lifestyle. The new Pete Thomas walks around with a body fat percentage near the single digits, compared to the 51% body fat he dragged around in his 400+ pound pre-Biggest Loser days. Pete has appeared on ABC's The View, The 700 Club, and eXtra as well as being featured in People Magazine, Runners World, TV Guide, The Detroit Free Press, inTouch Weekly and Real Health
This event is co-sponsored by the Taubman Health Science Libraries and The Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR).
