The following is a blog documenting two Los Angeles Times editors' attempts to lose weight.  It all began on Jan. 10 . The NFL playoffs.  In the past, that would mean a big excuse for me to indulge (actually any day would qualify). Tailgating or going to a friend’s house means a ton of food and drink. We were professional tailgaters at the former Mile High in Denver: the grill, the bar, the sombrero-wearing donkey, we had everything.  (Well, we never actually had the donkey, although we thought it would be funny)

I agreed with all but one word of Lee Dembart's review of the Ralph W. Moss book, "The Cancer Industry: Unravelling the Politics" (June 5). That single, inaccurate word was "dietitians," being used so out of context in association with Laetrilists, vitamin advocates and believers in the power of positive thinking. Perhaps Dembart meant "nutritionists," a word that has no legal meaning. Anyone, including health food store clerks, Nutri-System counselors, sports trainers, Herbalife distributors or even your grandmother, can call themselves a nutritionist.

H.J. Heinz Co.'s Weight Watchers International Inc. settled long-standing federal deceptive advertising charges by agreeing to permanently trim the diet company's claims about the success of its programs. The settlement, which requires that certain disclosures accompany weight-loss claims, formalizes a policy that Weight Watchers says it has followed since shortly after the Federal Trade Commission filed suit in 1993. The settlement marks the culmination of an FTC crackdown on U.S.

NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period. They kicked off their weight-loss "strategies" on Jan 10. “Glad I’m not you,” e-mailed Health Know-it-all Tami Dennis, remarking on my food choices from the day before. “Dude, you need protein,” wrote my Boston friend Casey. “I was beginning to think I'd see you being removed by ‘Jaws of Life from your house or buried in a piano case,” said longtime pal Rob on my Facebook page.

The following is a blog documenting two Los Angeles Times editors' attempts to lose weight. It all began on Jan. 10 . First up: the scale. My trainer weighed me in at 205 lbs. on Jan. 8. Four weeks later, I'm weighing-in at 191. I've strayed from my dietary plan twice so far. The evening of the Delmonico steaks and this past Friday when I had a turtle sundae (oops). But who's complaining? Fourteen pounds lost with two mulligans. Not bad. Nutrisystem food holding up just fine.
