No Diet Fad or Fake Fitness Product will be Safe from the Wrath of the Fed Up Female!
67% of Americans are suffering with being overweight or obese – and 100% of profit-driven marketers looking to get into their pockets know it.
They sell millions of books each year touting their fool-proof weight loss plans, they push fast weight loss pills, magic foods and miracle machines that promise to rid the desperate consumer of unwanted fat in the blink of an eye, and they put television shows on the air that portray lightning fast weight losses as the norm.
It is the mission of the Fed Up Female video blog to debunk every diet myth and fracture every fitness fairy tale, one by one.
Check out this video blog for cold hard dishes full of the truth, and nothing but the delicious truth!
The Fed Up Female blog features video excerpts from Michelle Pearl’s upcoming book of the same name. Pearl is also author of Wake Up! You’re Probably Never Going to Look Like That: How to be Happier, Healthier and Imperfectly Fit Second Edition. In Wake Up! Pearl shares how she lost over 100 pounds twice in her life, and kept those pounds off the second time around. The foreword for the book was written by Kai Hibbard, the 3rd season runner-up on NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
A fitness expert and entrepreneur, Pearl is also a former award-winning newspaper columnist, having won Society of Professional Journalists awards for writing one of the best feature columns in her region of Southern California in 2005 and 2006.
Ms. Pearl holds a rare triple certification which includes credentials as an American Council on Exercise (ACE®) Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), an ACE® certified Group Fitness Instructor (GFI), and the advanced certification of an ACE® Lifestyle and Weight Management Coach (LWMC).
