The next day it's time for Bob to see the video food journals of his team. For breakfast they have burritos at 225 calories. Bob tells them that it was a good choice, but they actually could have had two burritos since they're working out all day. Carbs are fuel, and they don't have enough fuel. Ron is also still confused about the benefits of olive oil. They have pita pizzas for lunch at about 170 calories each. He notes that there's no protein on the pizzas, so they fail on this end, too. For a snack, Filipe decides to have a piece of fruit. Bob goes, "What are you doing? Are you a supermodel?" He and Ron split an orange and almonds, which Bob finds ridiculous. He is not happy about how this whole thing is going. For dinner he wonders if they're going to have ice or lettuce cups. In fact they're having orange roughy, broccoli, and yams. They use 7.5 ounces of fish to feed all three of them, which basically means they've each had 1/3 of a serving. The funny thing is, they all thought they aced it. Not so! When your exercise intensity goes up, you need more calories to fuel your workout. His team needs more nutrients and more protein. Oh. And all of this is leading to a product placement for protein powder. I feel so punked!
Last-chance workout! Yelling, sweating, beatings. Mike is amazed at his own transformation and says that while he had no hope before, now he's bulletproof. Aw, I really love that kid and am so happy he's done so well. He's going to be the hottie who amazes everyone by busting out that he used to be 400 pounds. Everyone is working it out to increasingly furious degrees, and Jillian has her team doing two-minute sprints. Helen quits with a few seconds left, and Jillian screams at her. Helen does not quit the next time. She does, however, feel like she might die. Bob is no easier on his team members, all of whom are in some pain. However, Kristin says that she's breaking barriers every single day, which is a good feeling. If Kristin can spring with all that boobage the rest of us really have no excuse. Jillian screams at her team that if they go home and think they're going to win this show, they have to be exceptional. So she's having them do one more sprint. We cut to commercial after she says this, which actually makes me feel like someone might die.
Actually, no one dies. But Jillian tells us that these intense workouts tend to destroy all the contestants' walls and barriers. Mike is pushed beyond his limit, and tells us that he was pissed off. He punches the treadmill, which I think is probably a substitution for Jillian. Jillian interviews that Mike is always going to have a fat kid inside. Every time he fails or struggles, he thinks that he's always going to be a failure or a loser and unravels. He cries and bites his sleeve, and Jillian asks him what he's pissed about. She tells us that being 300-plus pounds as a teenager comes with a lot of heartache and a lot of anger, and is generally soul-crushing. That's been brewing inside of Mike for 18 years. She notes that when Mike got here he was almost 400 pounds, and Ron was over 400 pounds. There's obviously something going on in the family.
