thetruthaboutweightloss The Truth About Weight Loss – (2015, Amazon #1 Best Seller – Exercise & Fitness, Weight Loss Diets). This is my book geared specifically towards beginners.

If you want to lose weight (and keep it off long term), you’ve got to ditch the fads and go to the plan that’s been proven to work, time and time again. The Truth About Weight Loss cuts through the diet industry dogma and lays out a simple, step-by-step plan that’s easy to follow and gets real world results. Learn to make fat loss work for your lifestyle and achieve your lean dreams, for good. Available on Kindle and in paperback.
