Losing it

If you’ll recall, a few weeks back I reported on my being selected to test iLose, a revolutionary weight loss program being developed by Apple’s iTunes empire in conjunction with Bakersfield-Area Weight-Loss Labs (BAWLL). iLose combines iPod technology with Apple’s vast iTunes inventory and BAWLL’s 40-plus years of weight-loss expertise. Three weeks after a representative from Apple contacted me and set up my participation in a Phase II study on this digital weight-loss program I lost 6 pounds and gained a wealth of great tracks to load onto my iPod! I’m now halfway through my second month on the program and I’ve lost even more weight while downing yet another batch of calorie-free digital tunes!

This month’s selection kicks off with some mellower tracks, like an outtake from The Basement Tapes and a “twofer” of LA-style rock by an obscure 1977 by a band called Anonymous. Soon enough, The Small Faces and Finn’s Motel crank up the energy. Why don’t you load these tracks into your iPod, take a walk now and then, and tell me if you don’t start shedding pounds like I have. You, too, can lose!

A sample of the playlist from my most recent iLose session follows. Consider it your trial version of this possibly revolutionary weight-loss program!
