My name is Cate Brizzell, and I'm the author of "Real People Don't Diet!".
As you can see from my photo, I'm a Real Person. At least, I hope I look real--otherwise my photo editing skills are really out of whack. :-)
The idea for the e-book and companion website came along in late 2006, after family and friends kept asking "How did you manage to lose so much weight?" during holiday gatherings.
My husband said, "You should write a book and just send it to all of them."
And I figured, why not?
And then I figured, wouldn't a lot of people be helped by this information, if they could get their hands on it?
I mean, if a simple eating formula that one can adopt for life produced such radical results for us, wouldn't it work for just about anyone trying to lose weight without dieting?
So the book was born.
And then the website.
In case you're wondering whether or not I have a nanny, or a cook, or a housekeeper, I want to assure I most certainly do not! (Yet.)
I'm also solidly middle-class (for now).
I'm middle-aged (but obviously look much younger, don't you agree?) and I don't exercise at all--I'm not the outdoorsy type.
I have three elementary-aged kids that keep me very busy, and a husband that requires his share of attention, as well. :-)
So you see, if I'm just an average, ordinary person like you...
...then MY story can be YOUR story!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find what you're looking for.
