Bikini-Clad Women Urge Healthier Diet

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The campaign to fight obesity in Oklahoma City is getting some unexpected help from two women wearing lettuce bikinis.

Two campaign workers for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals served up vegetarian hot dogs Wednesday outside the state Capitol to encourage residents to have healthier diets.

Twenty-four-year-old Virginia Fort of Norfolk, Va., says there are numerous environmental and health benefits associated with replacing meat in the diet with fruits and vegetables.

Fort was joined by 27-year-old Amanda Fortino of Los Angeles, and both were wearing green bikinis with fabric made to look like lettuce.

Legislative assistant Kyle Mead tried one of the veggie dogs and says it was a decent alternative to his normal lunch - a ham sandwich and a bag of chips.
