You will never have to look for a diet book again!

This handy pocket guide will be your go-to book for weight loss. It is so small that you could have a book in every room for fast and substantial reference.

In A Small Guide to Losing Big,  the author, Cheryl Forberg, RD  makes it easy – weight loss basics, nutrition tips, menus and recipes in a no nonsense pocket guide.

And this lady has a lot of talent. She was the nutritional consultant to the popular show the Biggest Loser for 15 seasons. During those seasons, she has uncovered stunning facts about typical eating and lifestyle habits that cause millions of Americans to gain thousands of pounds each year. She also knows how to interpret that information to promote weight loss. After seeing the success of so many people on The Biggest Loser, Cheryl now shares all of her secrets and insights into this handy small, yet big book.

From the words of one of the contestants on the show, take it right from the mouth of one who benefited from  Cheryl’s wisdom:

“As a contestant on season 14 of the Biggest Loser, I think I am quite qualified to speak on not only the food and recipes that Cheryl comes up with, but the kind of person that she is. I have spent a lot of time with Cheryl, whether it be on set of the show, hiking in the mountains, or chatting for hours on the phone when I was eliminated. I can’t begin to describe the effort she puts in to people. She goes above and beyond for others, and the same is true for her work. She takes special care to make sure that what you’re cooking and putting in your body is good for you, and promotes a healthy lifestyle because she honestly cares. I think it’s important that you know, that without her guidance I would not have the nutritional “know-how” that I do today and I could not be as successful as I am today. I feel it’s more important that you know the how good of a person she is and that the book that you’re about to buy is authored by someone who may not know you, but cares for your health and wants you to eat what’s good for you without sacrificing flavor. I can personally vouch for this, and all of her works because I use them. I used them when I was on the show, and I use them today in my continued success.”

With a testimonial like this — run – don’t walk to buy this book and learn from one of America’s top experts!
