New publicaion by recent alumna

Jennifer Otten, PhD, and a recent graduate of UVM, just had this major publication:

Effects of Television Viewing Reduction on Energy Intake and Expenditure in Overweight and Obese Adults
A Randomized Controlled Trial
Jennifer J. Otten, PhD, RD; Katherine E. Jones, MS; Benjamin Littenberg, MD; Jean Harvey-Berino, PhD, RD

Arch Intern Med. 2009;169(22):2109-2115. 

The bottom line: cutting back on TV viewing did good things for people's calorie intake and activity.

The article got some nice press attention, such as Science Daily, and US News and World Report.
