Summary

For most of us, the radical changes called for by weight-loss gimmicks-whether focused on diet, exercise, or even pop psychology-are unrealistic. But Small Changes, Big Results is about reality-the reality of what you want to do, what you can do, and what works.

Author Biography

Ellie Krieger received her undergraduate degree from Cornell and her master’s in nutrition from Columbia, and is a registered dietitian who teaches nutrition at New York University. Ellie was a fashion model for Wilhelmina, then turned her attention to a TV career as host of the nationally syndicated Living Better in 2001 and 2002. She had a New York City–based nutrition counseling practice, and she’s been an on-air fitness expert for, among other outlets, Today, CNN, Food Network’s In Food Today, and CBS’s The Early Show. She has been featured or quoted in print outlets from Self, Fitness, Prevention, Glamour, and Ladies’ Home Journal to GQ and Men’s Journal. Ellie is in her late thirties, married to an Outward Bound expedition leader, and the mother of young Isabella. This is her first book.
