I am reposting this podcast of May 5 2016 on Sunday, May 29th, and the blog post because it has links to several articles that followed the original NYTimes article about The Biggest Loser. It also contains an article I wrote for "Medium" as well as the podcast where I try to see the research as more hopeful than depressing. I am in the process of creating a resource of articles that addresses this topic.
The "weight" news of the week concerned the research study done on 14 contestants of the TV show "The Biggest Loser". The links to these articles are here.
