I am working on getting back on track and I have a great little book to help me along the way. Bernadette Fiser's book, The Little Book of BIG Weight Loss is a available now and the timing is perfect for helping you stick to those New Year's Resolutions. Here is the scoop...
Bern Fisers, a devoted mother and successful makeup artist for celebrities such as Cindi Lauper, Ruby Rose, Richard Branson for more than two decades, struggled with her weight for most of her life and came close to 300 pounds at her heaviest. When faced with some serious health problems, she knew she had to make some dramatic life changes, and she turned to her famous clients for their advice. Bern lost 66 pounds in 30 weeks by following a custom diet she created using her clients’ tips in combination with her doctor’s guidance, information from medical journals, and her own strategies that she tested and found doable for herself in the long run. She’s successfully kept the excess weight off for a year, and her eye-popping “before and after” pictures and interviews about her journey can be found at www.thelittlebookofbigweightloss.com.
Nearly 40 percent of American adults carry enough extra weight to warrant a diagnosis of obesity. That’s the highest obesity rate among the world’s affluent nations, and it’s already shortening Americans’ lifespans by driving up rates of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancers, arthritis and dementia. THE LITTLE BOOK OF BIG WEIGHT LOSS presents an opportunity for American readers to take hold of Bern’s advice and make the same dramatic changes that improved her life and countless others’ lives around the world.
Skipping the long and involved explanations and directions of the typical 300+ page weight loss manual, Bern Fisers presents listicle-like advice that she followed to develop better eating habits. Individually, the techniques in her book are not new, but it’s the winning combination of these 31 tips that creates superfast weight loss, and as a by-product, vastly improved health. Providing sections covering both the physical and mental aspects of losing weight, plus recommendations of food and ingredients to have on hand and suggested meal plans, Bern explains what to do, why each tip is important and—with absolute candor— how she made each tip work for her. Her rules range from removing refined sugar from one’s diet and fasting from 7 PM to 10 AM, to drinking coffee first thing in the morning and eating leafy greens with good fats. Most importantly, she says: “remember, if you slip up: tomorrow is another day and another chance to be healthy. in other words, be kind to yourself and make yourself a priority.”
With its whimsical and appealing design combined with the author’s no-nonsense attitude, THE LITTLE BOOK OF BIG WEIGHT LOSS reads like written encouragement from your very best friend. For anyone who has tried and failed to lose weight and keep it off, this book, with its fresh, “can do” approach to dieting and sustainable health benefits, is a valuable resource for fulfilling one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions. Bern’s rules are easy, they’re helpful, and they work. Just look at her then, and now!
