Welcome!

This site provides practical, straightforward advice for losing weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle. It also provides insight and perspectives on the powerful forces that are contributing to the obesity epidemic.

Like the book I’m Fat, Help Me, this website is only for you if you can handle it, and if you are willing to make significant changes in the way you think, live, eat, and move. You won’t find cute charts, calorie counters, or tasty recipes; nor will you find unrealistic sensationalized success stories. What you will find is honest advice, ideas, and information to inspire you to take accountability for making changes that will make a difference.

Check out Laura Michina’s blog, her book, and an array of resources to help you.
