Restaurateurs: They’re Fat Just Like Us


We were hoping Roger Berkowitz and Lydia Shire might disclose some truly wild New Year’s resolutions on their Herald blogs (Berkowitz moves to the Berkshires and takes a vow of silence! Shire goes blonde!), but no. Seems both of ‘em just really want to lose weight. Berkowitz confesses that he’s—gasp—eight pounds overweight. As such, Berkowitz has embarked upon a diet of “Lots of healthy protein (fish) [shocker!], less carbs and sugar (desserts).” As for Shire, well, she was told by her doctor that it was time to diet and exercise. So she made herself a salad. With bacon, of course. [Herald]
