As host of The Biggest Loser, Alison Sweeney has her head on straight when it comes to how to lose weight. In fact, instead of choosing to join a fancy gym to shed her baby weight (daughter Megan Hope is five months now!), Alison told PEOPLE she invested in the EA Sports Active package for the Nintendo Wii.
Alison credits the show for helping her learn “a lot about nutrition and how to count my calories,” she said. Of her Wii workouts, Alison said, “It’s just a good example of how you can really get it done at home. You don’t need to have a big fancy gym membership. One of the things we talk about on The Biggest Loser all the time is just how difficult it is financially to lose weight sometimes. And that isn’t an excuse anymore. There are really reasonable options.”
Alison and her husband David Sanov also have a son, Ben, who is a great big brother, according to Alison. “…right now he is so loving towards her…We’ve been so blessed with that,” she said.
