I was recently interviewed by Authority Magazine for their series, "5 Things You Need To Do To Achieve A Healthy Body Weight, And Keep It Permanently."
It was an extremely fun and thought-provoking interview that delves into random aspects of my personal background as well as my guidance on working toward and maintaining a healthy body weight--both in terms of weight loss and weight gain.
