We opened the show with a heated debate whether the musician Drake was Jewish – he is. Then later we talked about important stuff like keynoting the FitBloggin 11 conference and other things we have going on. We ended on Dr Fitness giving his take on a recent Consumer Reports review of the Top 10 Diets (The Top 3 were Jenny Craig, Slimfast and Weight Watchers). But guess who funded the study that Consumer Reports relied on – Jenny Craig – and they came out on top – probably just a coincidence.
We then interviewed Biggest Loser Season 10 Winner Patrick House. He seemed like a great guy. He is doing amazing work in South Carolina with his Mindstream Academy which is helping overweight kids battle obesity. He also shared some behind the scenes of the Biggest Loser – he talked about how Bob and Jillian behaved when the cameras were turned off. He also mentioned that his wife lost 60 pounds when Patrick was off doing the show in order to support him better when he came home. He lost almost 200 pounds on the show and has recently run the Boston Marathon. His motivation for winning the show were to lose weight, be a better role model to his kids and he needed the money because he was unemployed.
