A few years ago, Jami Bernard, who until very recently was a film critic at The New York Daily News, decided to use her very public platform as a means of helping herself lose weight. She shared her weight loss — ultimately 75 pounds — with her readers, writing regular updates, and posting photographs of her progress.
The result of all of this is her new book, The Incredible Shrinking Critic: 75 Pounds and Counting: My Excellent Adventure in Weight-Loss, which is as much of a witty autobiography of her days growing up in Queens as it is a serious look at diet, fitness, and weight loss.
With all of the recent podcasts and blogs about fitness and nutrition, I thought Jami's story would make for a great podcast, which you can hear by clicking here, or via Apple's iTunes site. (No iPod required, of course; virtually any PC can download and play an MP3 file.)
And after you're done listening, stop by Jami's own blog, by clicking here.Powered by Sidelines
