Next up in this action-packed episode is a visit to the California Health and Longevity Institute for a cooking lesson with hottie chef Curtis Stone. He may come between Stephanie and John's budding romance, such is his hotness. First, Curtis is going to talk about portion sizes. Restaurant sizes are out of control, which has contributed to an epidemic of people eating way too much damn food, which is why The Biggest Loser exists. Curtis reveals a big Caesar salad, which has 860 calories. He then reveals fried macaroni, which has a whopping 1,570 calories. A rather nefarious looking shrimp and pasta dish has 2,285 calories. And then Curtis reveals some truly delicious-looking chicken and biscuits, which has 2,500. Bitch, you stay away from the pot pie family. Then there's a big piece of chocolate cake, which has 1,679 calories. Michael says that this whole thing is like a typical five-course meal to him, which leads Melissa to note that it's no wonder he weighs 576 pounds.
Curtis then teaches the contestants how to make healthy, appropriately portioned chicken cacciatore. Four ounces of chicken breast is apparently enough for your fat ass, so take note. Oh, and there are the Zip-Loc bags. Also, Muir Glen organic fire roasted tomatoes. First Scott Brown, now this. My night is getting worse. The final dish has 300 calories per serving.
Back at the house, the contestants have a dinner break. Miggy tries to talk to Migdalia about their workout strategy, but Migdalia is unresponsive. She finally admits that it got to her when Jillian asked her why she's not happy with herself. She doesn't know why she's so angry. Miggy thinks it's because Migdalia wants to express herself, but doesn't know how. She gets frustrated, and she gets angry. It's easier to get angry and fight than to confront her feelings. Wow, that was surprisingly on target! Migdalia interviews that maybe there is a part of her that wants to open up a little and change. She hasn't been happy with herself for a long time, and says she doesn't know how to change. Miggy thinks that it will help Migdalia and her family to talk more to Jillian, and get some help. She's happy that Migdalia recognizes that she needs help, and seems willing to accept it. The lesson here really is that Dr. Phillian is ALWAYS RIGHT! Stick that in a Muir Glen tomato can and make cacciatore with it.
