Welcome to the online press kit for Doug Varrieur and Fat To Skinny!
The Simple Solution to America's Obesity Epidemic
Trapped in a vicious cycle of overeating, low self-esteem and out-of-control weight gain, Americans endure confusing advice from a diet industry pushing both low-fat and low-carb products, and yo-yo dieting that's destined to fail. Obesity, diabetes and related diseases rob us of health and vitality and threaten a healthcare disaster for our kids.
People seeking simple, easy-to-understand weight-loss solutions in a fast-paced world have found a friend and advocate in Doug Varrieur and his new book, FAT TO SKINNY Fast and Easy! Coming Jan. 1, 2012, Sterling Publishing will release a revised and expanded edition including more than 200 recipes, a 50-minute motivational CD, and amazing success stories of people who have lost fat using the principles Doug teaches.
A year later, after following the methods in FAT TO SKINNY, Sherri is out of the wheelchair, off the pain meds and has reclaimed her life. "I have done every diet in the world in the last 43 years and this is the first one that feels real, like it is my new life plan," she says. "The first month of changes is the hardest but after that you will see that it just becomes second nature."
Doug is not a doctor or nutritionist. He's an inquisitive entrepreneur with a big heart for people who are overweight just as he was for many years. He developed Fat To Skinny on his own, independent of those other low-carb diets, out of his drive to win his own battle with diabetes.
After winning the fight against fat and sharing how he did it in the first edition of FAT TO SKINNY, Doug issued a call on his free reader support forum at www.FATtoSKINNY.net for people with amazing stories to tell. "I want you to pretend that you're sitting in a room listening to stories from friends, because that's what these people will become to you," Doug says in the introduction to the new edition. "They will hold your hand and help guide you down the path to better health."
Filled with tasty recipes and inspirational messages from Doug and his fans, the new edition will be released just in time to help folks looking to start a healthy new life in the New Year.
Doug's regular guy appeal allows him to present information in a simple, easy-to-understand way that makes sense to everyone struggling to lose pounds. In a world of confusing and often conflicting diet messages, he believes simplicity is the key to his ability to reach people and save lives.
"We've beaten to death this diet thing for years and years and years, and it isn't getting better, it's getting worse," he says. "We have the highest obesity rates that we've ever had. The generation of children that are upcoming right now are expected to live a shorter life span than their parents for the first time in history."
No one can watch Doug's visual demonstration about the tons of sugar hidden in our foods, including supposedly "healthy" ones, and be unmoved. Pouring cups of sugar and stacking 5-pound bags on a scale, he graphically shows the 150 pounds that each of us consumes on average every year.
"People see that and they say 'I can't believe I'm eating that much sugar.'" Doug says. "This is about how to eliminate the one thing out of their diet that's making them fat. All of a sudden, it makes sense for the first time in their lives."
The proof that Fat To Skinny works is in the fat loss results of people across America who have heeded the advice of this successful businessman, former fat guy and "sugar whistleblower."

A devoted husband, father and family man, Doug has made it his "life's divine mission" to help ordinary folks lose weight, reverse insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes and get skinny and healthy so they can live longer, happier lives.
"In my lifetime, I can only pray to make a small dent in this gigantic, worldwide epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes," he says. "There are people out there who are sick, dying — people who are overweight and don't know what to do. The cool part about Fat To Skinny is that the book simply is the truth."
