Biggest Loser Street Strider

The StreetStrider ETX 8r (As seen on The Biggest Loser)

I was watching the Biggest Loser last night and they showed this cool new bike that is like a portable elliptical machine. When I researched it, it was developed using contestants from the biggest loser and is now rolling out.

The price tag is $1699, and for me the shipping was another $60. If you want a stand so you can ride it indoors that is another $330 (you might be able to pick up one of these at a sporting goods store). If you want to see one in person there are just a few retailers (no one in Ohio).  It looks like fun, and one person got off the Street Strider and said she had burned 420 calories in 30 minutes (according to her bodybugg). There is financing available. When I first published this post, I had hoped that someone would eventually come out with a less expensive version of the street strider. It appears to have finally happened. For example the Zike Saber Hybrid Bike looks very similar to the Street Strider except it has a more traditional set of handlebars (and a price tag about 1/2 of the street strider).

New Biggest Loser Book 6 Weeks to a Healthier You

If you watched Biggest Loser television show, you heard how there is a new book out called The Biggest Loser: 6 Weeks to a Healthier You: Lose Weight and Get Healthy For Life!. I looked this over at the local book store and it is your basic Biggest Loser book. Lots of pictures, tips, exercises. To me it looks a lot like the 30 day jump start program. That book looked a lot like their fitness program book. These books are quick reads, filled with decent information. I some times think you are paying for a lot of images. Please keep in mind, this is not a book by Bob and Jillian. The authors are Cheryl Forberg RD, Melissa Robertson, Lisa Wheeler, and Biggest Loser Experts and Cast.

Other Books that were recently published include:

The Genius in All of Us: Why Everything You've Been Told About Genetics, Talent, and IQ Is Wrong This books isn't so much diet and health, but does bust stereotypes of being intelligent. In The Genius in All of Us Shenk beautifully explains why the nature-nurture debate is dead. It is not just the genes we are born with, but how we are raised and what opportunities are open to us that determine how smart we will become. Nurture and experience reshape our genes, and thus our brain. Shenk argues that the idea we are either born with genius or talent, or we aren’t, is simply untrue.
