Public Dieting, Blogs and Japanese Ministers

In a drastic step againts ummm... obesity? Two Japanese Ministers are going on a Public Diet and their progress will be minitored on a blog.

Vice-ministers Noritoshi Ishida and Keizo Takemi have pledged to shed at least 5kg (11lb) each.
They will chart their progress in a blog on the ministry website over the next six months.
The site will include information on how much exercise the men take each day and what they drink.
"I can't run or hide any longer, once the blog starts," Mr Takemi said.
The vice-minister, who is 166cm (5ft 5in) tall and weighs 84kg, said he had to lead from the front.
"Considering my position as a vice-minister of health, I felt I had to do something about it," Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun quoted him as saying.
Mr Ishida says he will walk for 10 minutes every day and stop using elevators.[more]

Should we suggest the same to our Aviation ministry? It would be such fun! Only Desi Voyeurs will have a heyday!
