How It Feels To Host "The Biggest Loser," From Alison Sweeney (VIDEO)

For seven years, Alison Sweeney has been a central part of "The Biggest Loser" -- a hit television show about weight loss and body image.

“It’s so inspiring to be part of the journey with the contestants and to see them go through the struggles and successes," Alison told us. “Just to be a part of it with them is so emotional, rewarding and inspirational.”

Alison sees obesity as a major epidemic, and it gives her a great sense of purposefulness to feel that she is helping to bring about a solution with her role on “The Biggest Loser.”

“I know that every week when we are doing the show, we’re part of the solution. We’re helping,” she said.
