Just got back from Anderson’s Book Shop in Naperville, Illinois where I co-presented with the awesome, Nicki Anderson. Nicki is a personal trainer and was most recently on the Dr. Oz show. She has helped thousands achieve their health and fitness goals with her realistic and consistent approach. Nicki and I share the same “101” approach  – with her newest book Single Step Weight Loss Solution with 101 tips and my 101 Optimal Life Foods – we made a great team telling the audience at Anderson’s that you don’t have to go to extremes to meet your health and fitness goals.

 I love Nicki’s shirt “Dieting Sucks“. And so does wearing a size large when you are an extra large! Ha. But my wife will look forward t wearing as a workout shirt.

You can see on the table that I brought some brownies to the event and yes, they were the famous “Beanie Greenie” brownies fron my recipe contributor, Deb Schiff of Altered Plates. They were a big hit!


And one of the neatest things was I got to meet Sean Wilson of Learn Fitness.  Sean has lost over 150 pounds by adopting simular philosophies as found in the 101 Foods approach and by being tenacious about exercising. Sean picked up on a Tweet I sent out about the event and luckily, lived near by. Congrats to Sean on his wonderful accomplishements and also for being a supporter of my work. In fact, Sean picked up two books for himself and two books to be given away on his blog. You can follow Sean on Twitter @learnfitness.

Thanks, Anderson’s! Had a great time!!!

I’m really having fun with this new blog\website. One of the neat things I like is being able to post pictures, videos and podcasts right into the posts.

There were so many cool interviews I had the opportunity to conduct last year that I thought I’d dust a few of them off and share them with you again.

WYLL is a local station here in Chicago where I hosted a radio show that broadcasted many of these interviews and many of my followers told me that sometimes they couldn’t catch the show at the times it ran. So, the good news is that I made podcasts out of all the shows and my game plan is to archive all of them here on this site under “podcasts”.

The game plan is also to do all new podcasts and videos this year too as a result of some very exciting partnerships that are in the works – I’ll let you know more about them as soon as I can 😉

In the meantime, please enjoy my wonderful conversation with Mike Roizen, MD, creator of Real Age and YOU: The Owner’s Manual and Mollie Katzen, celebrated James Beard award-winning cookbook author, talking about the health and culinary benefits of walnuts.
