Let's face it, diets are the very definition of deprivation, and this is why they are not sustainable for long term weight loss. A healthy lifestyle does not relegate you to a life of rabbit food, rather it means making smart choices and practicing moderation. In this cookbook, I will show you how easy it is to make healthy, delicious, and filling dishes that won’t leave you feeling deprived. Bonus videos provide additional tips and techniques to make recipes foolproof for even the novice kitchen chef.

Colleen Fields is a lifelong food enthusiast and healthy lifestyle convert who has lost more than 100 pounds and gone from a size 26w to a size 12 by marrying these two passions. As a single, working mother of two, Colleen struggled with her weight for years and tried every diet out there without success. Always enjoying cooking and good food, she found herself a constant companion at her mother’s side in the kitchen as a young child. Beginning her weight loss journey, she realized that her cooking style needed to change. Frustrated to find the only “healthy” cookbooks and television shows available focused on deprivational diets rather than behavioral changes, she began experimenting and creating her own healthy dishes and sharing her triumphs and newly developed scrumptious dishes through her online networks.
Today, she maintains her healthy weight and offers her recipes for success through her food blog, www.colleens-kitchen.com, videos, and cookbooks now available on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com Colleen hopes to serve as inspiration, offering simple, sustainable tools, obtainable healthy and weight loss goals and, a clear message for those struggling with the same issues she faced most of her adult life.
“There is NOTHING wrong with YOU, fad diets simply DON’T WORK. When you stop depriving yourself and learn to prepare healthy meals while making small yet impactful lifestyle choices, your whole world will change.”
“If I can turn my life around and overcome morbid obesity, so can you. You aren’t alone in this journey,” Colleen Fields, Healthy Recipe and Lifestyle Expert, Cookbook Author and Blogger.
