Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I am the perfect person to write this book because I have the education combined with experience. I have a formal training in nutrition with my master’s degree in nutritional sciences and my bachelor’s degree in dietetics. My experience comes from the fact that I needed to lose 40 pounds to lose to reach my ideal body weight. Frustrated that I knew what I should do, but didn’t know how to fit these strategies into my life, I started observing the habits of ‘thin people’.

These people were walking around in the body that I wanted. I wanted to know what they ate, how they ate it and when, what they drank, if they exercised, what kind of exercise they did, how they slept, handled stress, handled cravings, holidays, restaurants and parties. I spent 10,000 hours interviewing and studying their lifestyle habits.

After losing my excess body fat, I began to teach others these “THIN CHOICES” strategies at our local hospitals. After 15 years and numerous success stories, I decided these simple strategies needed to be shared with the millions of people who are so desperately searching for the magic bullet to permanent weight loss. I believe this book contains the magic bullet and I am glad to be the one to have discovered it.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: No other weight loss book offers the inside information on how a ‘thin person’ thinks and lives. If you want to be a successful real estate investor, you should study what the successful real estate investors are doing. If you want to be thin and healthy, do what the thin and healthy people are doing. It is almost too simple. Diets do not work, but living like a thin person will produce the same results for you as it does for them. It is a way-of-life, not a quick fix.

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
