My name is Cathy. I
studied Nutrition and Food Science at Cornell University and
received my Bachelor of Science degree in 1981.
With what I had learned
at Cornell, I was able to lose the weight I had put on during
my college years and maintain my weight nicely until I became
pregnant with my son.
At the time, I did not worry about gaining -- but after his birth,
I had some serious
weight to lose. I began reading every diet book I could get my
hands on and spent
hours in the library researching scientific methods of weight
Once again, I brought
my weight under control and felt that I could help others lose
weight also. I began counseling weight loss at local fitness centers.
found that I had to develop all of my own educational materials,
diets were incomplete and contained more sensationalism than science.
I compiled everything I found out about losing weight into a book
permanent weight control. A combination of scientific fact, education,
and dietary balance.
