My first book, Diets Are Fattening focused on "Why" you should stop dieting and build your healthy Thin Mentality. My new workbook focuses on "How."

The Original Diets Are Fattening – Book

I wrote my first book, Diets Are Fattening, to illuminate the unspoken consequences of dieting. Tens of thousands of people have emailed me, or followed me on social media, to express their support and appreciation for this perspective.

Please read these reviews of my first book from people just like you!

About the Author

Meg "gets into the heads" of dieters and turns their world upside down: Everything you have done to lose weight has backfired on you.Her experience as a dieter and as a manager for Nutrisystem gives Meg a unique perspective on the world of dieting. She has used this insight to develop strategies that guide people back to their ideal weight range and peace with food.

In addition to her work at Nutrisystem, Meg worked in the fitness industry as a trainer and instructor. She is a graduate of Georgetown University and holds a Master's Degree in Communication. She lives with her husband in Cincinnati and has three (almost grown!) children.
