The Psychology of Dieting

Edward Gemdjian

Needless to say when I found out ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary series was doing a piece on Jones, directed by John Singleton no less, I was extremely excited. I even got my girlfriend to watch it with me. After an hour full of dramatic speeches in front of high school students and a story about how she landed herself in solitary confinement during her stint in prison, Cathy and I looked at each other with confusion. “Is it over? What about…”
