Skinny Daily Post


It’s true! A few weeks ago, SDP was contacted for comments about the latest ‘discovery’ of a ‘fat gene’ by Harvard researchers. JuJu asked the NYTIMES writer, Amy Harmon, to talk with me, and here’s the result! It’s out today, and be sure to click on the video link for Genes and Self Image, where you’ll get to see and hear me (and Magnolia Louise!) in the park where we hike just about every morning.

We’ve often discussed the idea of a genetic basis for obesity, but we all know that the only thing that this means is that some of us have more difficult roads to travel. But I think the major take-away message is that effective weight management requires a very personal approach, and one plan does not work for everyone.

The video reporter (Craig Duff) shot more than an hour of video, and it’s been edited down to just a few minutes, so please understand that I said MUCH more than you’ll see.

It was an honor to have been asked. I hope it makes sense.

    Wow! And Wow! You’re both stars! It’s so good to hear your voice WITH your face, Jane! You’re just so you in this! Which is a real compliment. And Maggie is star material, absolutely. She is such a pro — is she interviewed a lot?

    Jane: voice, face, movement! You really are tall– I’ll bet you’re 5’9″. And I like your glasses. Congratulations!
