Dateline Diet Challenge
The five dieters are:

John Memorich . . . . . . . . . . . INTENSE EXERCISE
Carrie McQuiston Newman . SOUTH BEACH
Lorri Hodson Pecoraro . . . . . GET WITH THE PROGRAM
Dawn Stephenson Singh . . . VEGETERIAN
Jim Wentland . . . . . . . . . . . . THE USDA FOOD PYRAMID

As you can see we have replaced ATKINS with THE USDA FOOD PYRAMID. After evaluating who wanted what and listening to people’s diet stories and food interests we felt a better contrast would be a diet with a higher fat content (SOUTH BEACH) and low fat approach (USDA FOOD PYRAMID).

It was extremely difficult to select the final five. Edison had roughly 35 applicants, all great.

As who wanted what:

All 10 of the men who applied wanted INTENSE EXERCISE.
Almost all of the women wanted GET WITH THE PROGRAM.
Only 3 people wanted the VEGETARIAN diet.
