Reluctantly Healthy, which began as an exercise Web series of the same title, features the host hesitantly trying the latest exercise trends, such as "hooping" (exercising with hula hoops), and learning how to make healthier versions of common foods, such as salad dressings. She also spends time chatting with experts to learn more about specific foods and food combinations.

It's informative, but much of it is offered in a stylized, Southern California context, which makes it feel disconnected from most people's everyday lives. Nonetheless, folks looking for new ways to charge up their healthy lifestyles may find something useful here.
