1.) Do you think the parent/child teams or the married couples teams have the advantage and why?
Ed: Married couples, parents and children will have authority issues
2.) Has your partner contributed to your weight gain before the show?
3.) Do you think losing weight with a family member is easier or harder than going it alone and why?
Ed: It is an advantage. The family member keeps you honest and you are more obligated to succeed.
4.) What was the turning point in your life when you realized you needed to lose the weight?
Ed: My realization came with the fact that I want to have children some day and not be overweight.
5.) Who worked harder at losing weight—you or your partner?
Ed: We both tried equally as hard (who makes these questions?)
6.) What advice can you give to people who want to lose weight? What's the best advice you got?

Ed: Spin bike
8.) What's your favorite healthy snack or meal?
Ed: Hummus on Ezekiel tortilla with sprouts, turkey, and avocado
