Quick Hit: I’m in Tomorrow’s In Touch Magazine.

If you are near a newsstand, I am going to be quoted in tomorrow’s issue of In Touch Magazine discussing the disturbing trend in weight loss reality TV. This is just not a sentence I ever thought I would write.
Here’s what I had to say before about the issue from ABC News and here.

    My main issue with weight loss reality TV is that it is done in such a fashion where people post double digit weight loss numbers every week. Not sure that is realistic.
    However, people are inspired by shows like the Biggest Loser and they provide several online tools and charity tie-ins that encourage people to lose weight and get healthy. As long as you understand that those people workout 5 hours a day and subsist on 1,200 calories a day to achieve those kids of losses, you’re cool.
