The hit NBC show Biggest Loser, along with others like it have sparked some interesting local office weight loss challenges.

Cooking by the Book received a call from HBO wanting to celebrate their weight loss challenge with a healthful hands-on cooking lunch event. Leading up the event two teams competed over the span of 6 weeks to loose as much weight as possible. The winning team lost a total of 69 lbs while the other team lost a still impressive 62 lbs. If you ask me they were all winners. They concluded the event with some light cardio in the form of awesome line dancing.

On the Menu:
Avocado and Spicy Shrimp Cocktail
HBO Chicken Taco Salad
Grilled Fruit and Mango Sorbet
