Foreword to Thinking Skinny by nationally known speaker and registered dietician, Laurie Beebe:
“Anyone who has ever tried losing weight knows how difficult and frustrating it can be. Anyone who has successfully lost weight and kept if off knows what it really takes. In Thinking Skinny, Nadia takes us through her personal journey and shows us what worked for her.
This is not another diet book—it is a perspective on weight loss from a person who has accomplished what she set out to do, and more! Within these pages you will find the keys to long-term weight loss. Nadia goes beyond healthy eating and physical activity to the deeper aspects that work to achieve success in any area of life—goal setting, self-monitoring, and most of all, faith and belief in one’s self.
She addresses these important components that are missing from all the typical “quick weight loss” diet plans, as she tells her story of struggle and triumph. The reactions of friends and relatives; the discovery of a new, thinner person within: these are all parts of the episode we become privy to that are seldom shared.
In this book you will find accurate nutritional facts, tips to become more active, delicious recipes, and the personal story of a woman who lost weight by “thinking skinny.” Additionally you will discover inspiration to follow the path that worked for Nadia, or perhaps choose among her strategies to design your own blueprint for weight loss success.”
