The Skinny on Weight Loss:: One Woman's Journey to Fat and Back

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, May 14, 2001 - Health & Fitness - 148 pages

This honest memoir of the narrator ́s 100 lb. weight loss success departs from the typical food-focused diet book. Part autobiographical, part essay, sometimes a rant, it simply and clearly explains the science that effects body weight, and offers compelling reasons to get off the excess. Rather than sales pitches for exotic diet supplements, exercise contraptions or seldom used tapes, it gives tried and true strategies to stop overeating, served up with generous helpings of inspiration. It ́s an easy read with humorous moments and is filled with insights for choosing and using the foods you need.

WHAT OTHERS WROTE:

"This is not your ordinary weight loss book. A fresh

approach, very well written, inspiring. I ́m living by it."

Dwayne Holman, state association educational director

"I thought it was going to be dull. Instead I found it

engaging and readable--a real page turner."

Helen Morton, newspaper book critic

"Loved it. Using it. Want copies for all my friends!"

Frieda Werden, radio producer W.I.N.G.S.

Women ́s International News Gathering Service

"My favorite line is: ́We are in really deep trouble

when the least knowledgeable and the immature have

taken over the lead dog position in deciding for the

pack what ́s for dinner. ́"

Bonnie Orr, screenwriter

“Finally, a diet book that makes sense...a practical

guide...made very easy to understand and implement

...quite entertaining. I recommend it highly...”

Helen Dagley, RN
