Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes:
Book Vs Movie Podcast News: Margo Porras of Shes Nacho Mama’s Blog co-host the “Book Vs. Movie” podcast (that you can subscribe to via iTunes at this link) and this past weekend we recorded a super fun episode talking about Valley of the Dolls. I have the link below if you want to check it out for yourself. If you have any interest at all, please be to check out our new website (www.bookversusmovie.com) “like” us on our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter @bookversusmovie. (Thank you for letting me plus!)
We are planning our next episodes so if there are any books & movies you want us to cover—feel free to comment below!
Fit Bottomed Girls Playlist: Recently I was feeling nostalgic for the early 2000s and asked my editors at Fit Bottomed Girls if I can create a playlist (link here) devoted to the “flip phone” decade and this is what I came up with (hope y’all like it!)
The “Chocolate Diet Hoax”: Science journalist John Bohannon was tired of reading badly researched medical studies and “wonder diet tips’ get media attention so when he was approached by a German TV producer to come up with a fake story (how eating chocolate actually aids in weight loss) he jumped right on board. Sadly the very phony report was picked up by top publications around the world including Shape and Prevention.
Bohannon has a Ph.D. in molecular biology and once participated in a sting operation showing some “open-access journals” will publish any story for a fee. You must check out this interview on CBS News where he really lets the reporters he really feels about most of the health & wellness articles in the press. (He is NOT a fan)
Now My “Big EleVen Discount” for Y’all
