The Science Of Successful Weight Loss

The above slide show provided by the CDC shows a dramatic increase in obesity rates in The United States. 36 states now exceed a median obesity of 25 percent in 2010, where no state had an obesity rate this high 25 years ago. These statistics cause alarm, given obesity’s link to several deadly diseases including heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Knowledge about how our bodies process nutrients and sense satisfaction from the foods we eat represents a potent weapon to fight obesity, which is why 92nd Street Y is proud to host Karen Miller-Kovach, MBA, MS, RD, the Chief Scientist at Weight Watchers International on November 8. Miller-Kovach, who spent 14 years at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation as the organization’s director of nutrition services, will discuss the latest research in obesity and weight loss.

More information and tickets to The Science Of Successful Weight Loss with Karen Miller-Kovach, are available here.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Chris Bergson


Hailed by Living Blues as “a serious talent”, New York guitarist, singer and songwriter Chris Bergson plays at 92YTribeca tomorrow evening, along with Tony Leone and Mulebone. Chris is not only a killer guitarist, he also teaches guitar here, uptown at 92nd Street Y.

Bergson was gracious enough to answer our Culture Klatsch Q&A that pries deep into our subjects, looking at their culture and media diets. Spolier alert: he prefers reading physical copies of books.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
The New York Times online. 

What are your favorite websites?,, MOJO Magazine’s website ( and

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I use both a fair amount although like many people, I’m not a big fan of Facebook’s new layout with the ticker in the upper right hand corner of the screen.  Sometimes you miss stuff when you don’t go on there. It’s a funny sign of the times that I learned of both the birth of my best friend’s daughter this year and the breakup of a couple I’m friends with on Facebook. Sometimes I wonder if there’s going to be a privacy backlash down the road!

Do You Like Supertramp? Of Course You Do…
