Series Description

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

Broadcast Mondays beginning April 1, 1974 for 13 weeks

Maggie shows people who are overweight how to lose all the extra poundage they want. What’s involved is special exercise that can be done by people too heavy for other kinds, diets tailored to personal needs and a lot of common sense. A dozen people slim down and the weeks go by.

Program Description

The results are beginning to show up. But how can a dieter live a semblance of a normal life while watching food so carefully? Not hard, says Maggie: figure out what is needed and wanted in food, and less can even satisfy more. An orgy of the senses!
