Looking for the straight skinny about losing weight and getting in shape? Join Burke Allen as he talks with award-winning humorist Judy Gruen, who determined to streamline her body and outsource her fat during the months leading up to a college reunion.  

In her new book, Till We Eat Again: A Second Helping, Gruen chronicles her campaign to unearth long-hidden hip bones and earn the right to feel fabulous after 40. In the process she allows a skinny person to pinch her with calipers to measure her body mass index, considers a relationship with a talking scale, and signs up for fitness boot camp, belly dancing classes, too-hot-to-handle Bikram yoga, barre fitness, and other exercises that don’t begin with the letter “B.” She also consults “experts,” whose advice ranges from the wise (don’t skip meals) to the wacky (don’t eat lentils if your blood type is A).  To withstand her children’s demands for more pasta and less quinoa, she allows herself regular infusions of dark chocolate – for mental health purposes only.
