Live chat: Jimmy Orr, Tony Pierce on losing weight

January 18, 2011 |  3:56 pm

Tony-salad Times editors Jimmy Orr and Tony Pierce are losing weight (or at least, trying to), and are writing about it daily on Booster Shots. As Jimmy pointed out on Tuesday, they've had a lot of support so far:

   LisaFlorida writes to Tony:  "Your diet is crap.  You should see a dietician."
    "Oatmeal is not a diet food," AmyAlkon writes me.  (By the way I was reading this while eating my morning oatmeal.)
    Tony and I appreciate the comments.

On Thursday, they'll be chatting with readers at 1 p.m. Stop by and share your own diet and fitness tips.
