‘Biggest Loser’ study insight

The mainstream media across the US and Canada took great interest in “The Biggest Loser” study published in the Obesity Society’s journal Obesity last week. That left reporters, editors, and producers looking for doctors to provide insight into the real-world implications of the study that looked at contestants on the popular reality series after the competition was over. The New York Times provided in-depth coverage of the topic. And numerous diplomates of the American Board of Obesity Medicine offered their takes on the study. Below please find a sample of stories featuring ABOM diplomates:

Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford on Boston’s WGBH

Dr. Louis J. Aronne on CBS Local New York

Dr. Holly Lofton in the Huffington Post

Dr. Rekha Kumar in the NY Post

Dr. Scott Butsch in Boston Magazine
