What People Say About Gregg McBride

“Gregg is able to detail the family and social diversities he faced as well as many of the actual binges that he partook in to keep himself from being all that he had the potential to be. And oh, what potential that is. That same potential is available for all of us—no matter how many times we’ve tried to succeed in the past. This time can be different. It was for Gregg. It can be for you. Personally, I can’t help but be motivated every time I re-familiarize myself with Gregg’s story.”
—Joy Bauer, MS, RD, CDN, Nutrition and Health Expert for NBC’s The Today Show, New York Times best-selling author of “Joy Bauer’s Food Cures and Your Inner Skinny” and Contributing Editor/Monthly Columnist to Woman’s Day
