Md. county offering seniors weight loss program

/ Source: The Associated Press

Five senior centers in Carroll County are now offering a weight loss challenge program based on the television show "The Biggest Loser."

The program in Carroll County is called "Lose 2 Win" and is inspired by the reality show that takes overweight contestants and puts them through a rigorous training program to lose weight.

The sixth month "Lose 2 Win" program was developed by University of Maryland Food Supplement Nutrition Educator Terry Serio. Participants earn points they can redeem for prizes on the last day of class. They get a point for every pound lost as well as things like attending class and weighing themselves.

So far 10 seniors have signed up for the program.
