Joining the ranks of such celebrities as Kirstie Alley, Queen Latifah and Valerie Bertinelli, Jason Alexander has signed on to become the newest spokesperson for the Jenny Craig diet plan. Arguably best known for his role as George Costanza on the long running sitcom Seinfeld, Alexander was disturbed when he saw himself on screen recently. While taping a “Seinfeld” reunion to be shown on the hit show Curb Your Enthusiasm, he realized that he put on more weight than he wanted. His goal is to lose 30-40 pounds.
“It’s always been the same old story,” Alexander said in a statement about his previous attempts at dieting. “The first 10 lbs were gone in a jiff, but then Bamm!. Back again, and this time, they’re back with a vengeance — they even brought friends.”
Of his decision to try Jenny Craig, the former Kentucky Fried Chicken spokesman went on to say “It was a deadly combination of I’m fat and they work.” (more…)
It used to be that celebrity women were known for the diets they followed. However, with the recent likes of Rush Limbaugh and his success with Quick Weight Loss Centers, NFL’s Mike Golic on NutriSystem, and now New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan on a quest to lose some of the 340 pounds he has been carrying around, diets for men are becoming more interesting.
Since the NFL is known for its large players – the average NFL player weighs 245 pounds, 25 pounds heavier than their average weight in 1970 – it is no wonder that their coaches’ size is no different. (more…)
Valerie Bertinelli and Jenny Craig, Jenny McCarthy and Weight Watchers, when famous folks find success with a diet program, Americans listen. So when Rush Limbaugh announced that his drastic weight loss of over 80 pounds since March of this year is due to the Quick Weight Loss Centers, fans finally learned how the 58-year-old conservative radio talk show host had managed to lose so much weight so quickly.
Here’s the skinny: Quick Weight Loss Centers have been in business for over 25 years, helping people lose weight through their professionally-supervised programs. While each diet is customized to meet the weight loss goals of each individual, most diets hover around the 1,500 calorie mark and are comprised of real food that you purchase at the grocery store.

The week of June 15 is Men’s Health Week, dedicated to helping the special men in our lives take control of their health so that they’re with us for a long time. In the U.S. there are more than 73 million overweight or obese males, according to the American Heart Association. Obesity related diseases mean a diminished quality of life for these men, and often lead to death. This news should be sobering, as we prepare to celebrate the fathers in our lives this weekend.
This week we invited several fathers and men from around the blogosphere to share with you their personal stories of weight loss struggle and success. Weight loss can take on a very different tone for men than it does for women, but the end result is happier, healthier people.
We hope you’ll take to heart the message that these men are sharing, and make this Father’s Day the first of many more healthy holidays. (more…)
