Fifteen years ago I met an amazing woman during the most trying period of my life. We both lost a son within a few months of each other and found ourselves on the same online pregnancy loss support board. Through the years, we have watched each other grow and change and do things in our respective lives that I'm sure we never dreamed we would do before our losses. One thing Maureen "Moe" Jeanson did was to transform her personal fitness.
I am an emotional eater. Following my loss, I gained and gained and gained. I wasn't just overweight. I was fat. A year later, I was tired of it and found a diet I could live with. It worked and I lost 46 pounds. But it wasn't a life change. I then got pregnant with my youngest and the pounds piled on again. And this time they stayed. I couldn't get back into the diet once my baby was born. We've all heard diets don't work. And I can tell you it is true.

I have never heard the term "foodie evangelist" but this is exactly what Moe is. I thought I understood the ins-and-outs of real food eating but she taught me a thing or two. Moe writes in a style that makes you feel like she's right there talking to you. And that's what I need. A guide, a cheerleader, a friend - encouraging me to do better for me and my family.
Peek inside the book or just go search her website for many a tasty recipe! The book splits the recipes up into categories and even gives a nutritional value pie chart - for this visual gal, it is quite a help!
