Exercise program hosted by Maggie Lettvin (taught physical education at MIT)

In the first week, the participants weigh in and start with exercises that are done in bed and deal with the very real problems of overweight: aching legs and feet, varicose veins, lower back problems and dizziness. They learn how to analyze their own diets, too.
