Biggest Loser Contestant to Appear on EBTV’s Wellness Spotlight

Posted August 04, 2011 B By John Saccenti

Join NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” contestant Jay Jacobs throughout August on EBTV’s “Wellness Spotlight,” hosted by Dr. Ken Freedman.

Jacobs, a New Jersey native, lost almost 200 pounds while a contestant on the program and will discuss his experience on the TV show, the audition process as well as the rigorous 6 to 8 hour a day exercise schedule, the gourmet food the contestants had to cook for themselves and more.

Most importantly, anyone interested in losing weight--or making a positive change in their lifestyle—will benefit from Jay’s compelling distinctions, attitudes, and actions that enabled him to positively transform himself, his health, and his future.   

“Wellness Spotlight” is hosted by Dr. Ken Freedman, President of the East Brunswick Advisory Health Council. Dr. Freedman made contact with Mr. Jacobs’ agent and arranged for his appearance on the program. “I feel Jay Jacobs’ story is one that has lessons for all of us, especially at a time when more and more people want to take control of their health and life,” said Dr. Freedman. “Wellness Spotlight” offers interviews with experts in a variety of professions who relay key information that can naturally enhance a person’s level of physical, mental and social wellbeing. East Brunswick residents can view “Wellness Spotlight” on Comcast Channel 3 and on FiOS Channel 37 in August: Sundays & Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m.; Tuesdays at 7 p.m.; and Fridays at 4 p.m. People anywhere can view the program as video on demand at
