About Kai

Headshot2Kai Hibbard, LMSW and author of “Losing It: A Fictional Reimagining of my Time on Weight Loss Reality TV” was first cast into the spotlight through her participation in, and subsequent denunciation of the weight loss reality show The Biggest Loser. Going through the program, she realized the negative impact the show had, not only on her own life, but on society in general. Vowing to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem, Kai has fought, often as the lone voice, against unrealistic and damaging message in the media regarding our bodies in general. Over time that struggle has been featured in countless magazines and newscasts, both domestically and internationally, ranging from The Huffington Post, Time Magazine, Good Morning America, ABC News, CBS News, E!, Star Magazine, US Weekly, People, TMZ, The NY Times, The NY Post, Inside Edition, Redbook, Access Hollywood, FoxNews,The Globe, Jezebel, Huffington Post Live and Upworthy, where Kai’s honest, straight forward approach to her own story never fails to shine through.

Most of Kai’s time is spent juggling family, academic and professional life. When not researching or recording her upcoming podcast she is working as a social worker providing family and individual therapy or providing life coaching services. In 2017 and 2018 Kai published two peer reviewed academic articles as a member of the research team and her first novel is now available on Amazon.
