5:30 a.m.-10 a.m. Monday-Friday

Jeff and Jenn have been waking up Cincinnati since 2002. You’d think that between the two of them, plus Fritsch, there would be quite a few cups of coffee in the studio. But for some reason it’s Sharpies that are the mainstay in the Q studio during those early morning hours.

One of Jenn’s favorite moments with Q was arranging the first Autism Speaks walk in Cincinnati when more than 3,000 people came out in the pouring rain to support families like hers who are living with autism. It’s being involved with events like this, as well as Bras Across the Bridge and the Cincinnati MDA Muscle Walk that make Jeff, Jenn and Fritsch so proud to call Q102 their radio home.

But when they’re not with Q, Fritsch loves taking in everything Cincinnati has to offer, from going to Bengals and Reds games to enjoying summer concerts at Riverbend. She especially loves her Skyline (“Extra hot sauce, please!”).

You’ll find Jenn most often hanging out with her awesome son, Jakob, or working on her many hidden talents which include tap dancing, belting out show tunes, fitting her whole fist in her mouth and knowing the number of every value meal at McDonald’s, Arby’s and Wendy’s.

A self-professed foodie, Jeff’s favorite place in Cincinnati is the chef’s table at Boca. Besides his love for food, he also possesses an uncanny sense of direction. “You can drop me anywhere in the country blindfolded,” he says. “I’ll always find my way back.” Sounds like a challenge!

Does posting food pictures help you lose weight?

Why Looking at Pictures of Food Could Make People Lose Weight

(SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH) We all know people who can’t go to a restaurant without taking a picture of every dish they’re about to eat, then posting it to the Internet. But does looking at all this “food porn” make you lose your appetite?

BrighamYoungUniversity professor Ryan Elder asked 230 people to look at pictures of food and rate them. Half the people were shown 60 pictures of sweets (cakes, truffles, and cookies).  The other half were shown 60 pictures of salty foods (chips, pretzels, and French fries).

After they’d looked at these pictures, both groups of people were given a small bag of peanuts and asked to rate how much they enjoyed eating them. Ryan found that the people who’d looked at pictures of the salty food consistently said they got less enjoyment from eating the peanuts.

Ryan says this is because looking at picture after picture of certain foods – even if it’s someone else’s food – causes “sensory boredom,” which makes people less inclined to eat these foods  — and get less enjoyment from eating them. And the more pictures they were shown, the more their appetite was suppressed.

He believes that people’s desire for certain foods could be reduced by looking at these pictures – and this could help them control their weight.
