Sarah O’Connell and Dave Kruger interview Millbrook Rotarian Ellie Savoy, author of the International Best-Seller Stop Dieting, Start Living: 5 Foundations for your Health to Permanently Lose Weight Without Dieting, Starvation, or Suffering in Silence, as well as portions of other self-help books. Ms. Savoy is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach who not only coaches individuals, but also offers short courses. Her life took a turn for the better in 2011, when—30 pounds overweight—she face possible surgery, but decided to practice healthy eating and a better lifestyle instead. She has a lot of common-sense advice, which most of us would do well to follow. The basic program is to stop dieting and make the best choices in food and lifestyle. Exercise and sleep are also important, but should be routine rather than taking a special effort. Good health is everyone’s number-one asset in life, so make your own body your first priority.

Radio Rotary Interviews Certified Holistic Health Coach and Millbrook Rotarian Ellie Savoy, author of Stop Dieting Start Living: 5 Foundations for Your Health, to Permanently Lose Weight Without Dieting, Starvation or Suffering in Silence. Ms. Savoy argues that dieting does not work because it has a beginning and an end. Instead, we should stop living on autopilot and become aware of our own body. Her best-selling book tells how she did that for herself and how the reader can do the same. The key is to invest in yourself by eating real food.

The RadioRotary co-hosts interview author and motivational speaker Jesse Saperstein about his new book: Getting a Life with Asperger’s: Lessons Learned on the Bumpy road to Adulthood, a guide to leaving “the road to loserville” written by someone who has experienced the problems of a person with Asperger’s as he made important life transitions. Mr. Saperstein was diagnosed with Asperger’s at age 14, just two years after psychologists formally recognized the condition. Despite bullying by others and failing at the first two professions he tried (described in his first book, Atypical), he learned how to manage his condition and in this book offers his advice. The interview also deals with his hopes for introducing a muppet with Asperger’s into the Sesame Street cast.

Marion Licchiello, author of Anyone Can! Live a Happier Life, describes one of the major elements needed to live a happier life: changing thoughts from the negative to the positive. Ms. Licchiello once spent nine months in bed as a result of a severe case of Lyme disease, during which time she learned that thinking positively led her to happiness. Using additional examples, including more from her own life, the author points out that people’s stories vary considerably in how they turned their life around through their thought-changing process that can ultimately make the world a better place.
