On the biggest loser...?

How do they calculate the percentages, so the playing field is even? Is it beginning weight divided by weight lost?

Update:

Just answer the question, Ammy L, or go somewhere else.

    They calculate total percentage of weight lost. To do this, subtract ending weight from starting weight. Take this number, and divide by starting weight.

    So, if I started at 300 lbs and got down to 200 lbs, I would have lost 100 lbs. 100 divided by 300 is .33 or 33%.

    %age is always with reference to the original figures. Eat nourishing and not junk food with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Chew each morsel at least 32 times. This will activate ur message system from stomach to the brain so that u stop eating as soon as u feel full. Take plenty of regular light exercises and go for brisk walks. All unseemly spots will loose inches with pleasure in a reasonable time.
