The Skinny

For The Skinny, renowned obesity expert Louis Aronne, MD., gave me a challenge. He wanted to write a honest diet book. That meant no gimmicks and no exaggerated pound promises (Lose 10 pounds in 10 days!). He wanted to tell the truth about weight loss–that it was hard. It was a message that–until then–publishers had not been quick to embrace. I worked with Dr. Aronne to write a book that was honest, helpful, memorable and commercially appealing. The end result: a #3 New York Times bestseller.
