“As an obese Mom, and an RN with an obese child, I am pleased with how the F.A.S.T Diet has been able to help my daughter, Monica. She has been battling weight since she was 7 and has never been motivated to stick to a program. Even the threat of spending her life after 30 in a wheelchair didn't get her to take losing weight seriously. The accountability in the F.A.S.T Diet helped change that by encouraging her to succeed and not let a teammate down. The book is very easy to understand and provides a framework for accountability that works.”
— Mary Igo, RN
“The Dean family has boiled weight-loss down to the basics. Instead of looking for a gimmick or a pill or a magic elixir, they give you a program that will work. Do their program. You will lose weight. And, you might just have some fun along the way, too.”
— Bruce Godfrey, DC
“After losing more than 60 pounds and five dress sizes in five months on the F.A.S.T. Diet, I am healthier than I have been in years. I feel better and have more energy! The F.A.S.T. Diet will be inspiration for anyone struggling to lose weight and get healthy. It's a simple approach to lifestyle changes you can actually live with.”
— Elaine Pritchard, RN
“The F.A.S.T Diet is doable, very practical and creates the kind of support that is essential for success.”

"As a family physician, I have daily opportunities to treat patients who need to lose weight and those who are coming to me for help losing weight. The number one problem with weight loss is not lack of knowledge of how to lose weight -- it is a lack of accountability and/or support system. People tell me that they can do it on their own, they don't need a program or a doctor or a group. When I hear these claims I know failure is around the corner (rarely can a person do it on their own). I believe that good accountability, like that used in the F.A.S.T Diet, helps override all of the excuses that derail good diets.

Your book is really a very big relief for me. I have spent the last several years trying to find a way to cram all of this information and education into a 15 minute appointment without running late. The patient and I often feel frustrated at the lack of time to completely cover these points. I will definitely use this in my practice!”
