About the Author
Barbara Tessari is passionate about helping people improve the quality of their life. Her inspiration came after overcoming her own battles with her unhealthy behaviors and the revelation that taking care of her personal self positively impacted every aspect of her life. Barbara is a Certified Employee Benefit Specialist, Personal Trainer, Certified Wellness Coach, Motivational Speaker and Author. In 2002 she wrote the book, The Pizza and Ice Cream Diet, revealing the myths lies and deceptions of the food and diet industry. Barbara spreads her message with a wide range of Lifestyle speaking topics and offers entertaining Cooking Shows on preparing economical, healthier meals in 20 minutes or less. She is also a Workplace Wellness Consultant and speaks to corporate executives on the benefits of promoting health and well-being as part of their corporate culture to reduce health care costs and improve productivity.
In this book, Barbara focuses on basics like calories in vs. calories out, basic nutrition, and making the decision to be more physically active. She reminds of things like "Grandma's Rules" which were Eat three square meals a day, no dessert unless you finish dinner, eat all your veggies, don't spoil your dinner, go out and play, etc.
Basically, rather than throwing some new wonder diet at you or promoting the newest 'silver bullet' that will create a new you, Barbara takes us back to common sense and good nutrition. In other words, common sense. Years ago when these rules were the norm, obesity wasn't the epidemic it is today. She demonstrates to the reader that diet and exercise have gotten so complicated and confusing that people just don't do them.
I liked this book from the standpoint that it was simple and cut through all the information that we receive constantly from the media on the do's and don'ts. Most of the information we receive on a daily basis is very biased and often is contradictory.
This book is easy to read and is easy to understand. Barbara takes us back to the basics and good old fashioned common sense. This is a great book!
