What One Man Learned From Losing 100 Pounds

Losing weight is a big business and no doubt fueled by the numbers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that one-third of all U.S. adults are obese, resulting in medical costs of $147 billion per year.

Simply Google “best way to lose weight” and you’ll find thousands of ideas. One writer recently chronicled his journey for Vox, in a piece called “I lost 100 pounds in a year. My ‘weight loss secret’ is really dumb.” 

Alasdair Wilkins talks with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about how he lost the weight, and what he really learned from the experience.
