More About the Author

Cheryl Forberg RD is a New York Times bestselling author, a James Beard award-winning chef, nutritionist and culinary consultant for NBC's The Biggest Loser. Her role is to help overweight contestants transform their bodies, health and ultimately, their lives. A culinary expert and registered dietitian, she has shared cooking and nutrition tips with the contestants and viewers for eleven seasons.

Cheryl received her culinary education at the California Culinary Academy (CCA) in San Francisco. After graduating from the CCA, she embarked on a European apprenticeship journey, which culminated in stints at top French restaurants from Champagne to Strasbourg. Upon return to the United States, Ms. Forberg was chosen for the opening team of Postrio, Wolfgang Puck's first venture in northern California.

Cheryl's passionate interest in healthy cooking led to an exodus from restaurant kitchens and an entrée to some of the most prestigious households in America. During this period she held the coveted position of Private Chef for Lucasfilm, Ltd. in northern California. She went on to earn a degree in Nutrition and Clinical Dietetics and an RD (registered dietitian) credential from the University of California at Berkeley. As a former research dietitian at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, she had the opportunity to integrate her scientific background into recipe creation for a variety of dietary protocols. This distinctive skill set enabled her to extend her culinary expertise beyond celebrated restaurant kitchens into the creation of inspired recipes that are also healthful. She has developed a clear and concise recipe format, easily understood by novice students.

Cheryl is a food and nutrition journalist, and her writing and recipes have appeared in mainstream culinary and health publications, including Sunset, Health, and Prevention magazines as well as the Washington Post. She is on the advisory board for Prevention magazine.

Cheryl co-wrote the eating plan for The Biggest Loser. She has written or contributed to thirteen books, including several NYT bestsellers - The Biggest Loser: The Weight Loss Program, The Biggest Loser Complete Calorie Counter, The Biggest Loser 30-Day Jump Start and Positively Ageless: A 28-Day Plan for a Younger, Slimmer, Sexier You.

I saw her on television and she really knows her stuff.

I LOVE this book and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to eat the right foods to stay healthy and live longer, the natural way!
Dora D.
The easy to understand examples (like the oxidizing apple...) are great, and the no-nonsense research is fascinating and well-written.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This very readable, friendly book gives positive advice---not so much "do not" but "do this!" to feel and look great. The recipes and menus are not only inspiring and do-able, but sound more like daily, delicious indulgences than a spartan regimen. In addition to tempting dishes for the table, the author includes delicious kitchen-inspired 'spa' treatments--masks, scrubs and body rubs that are mouthwatering. I will recommend this book also for my younger-than-boomer-generation friends who want to maintain being their best.

I felt like a new person after following Dr. Cheryl's nutritional advice. I lost weight, but more importantly, I looked great! Everyone commented on how much I glowed after a few weeks of following the plan.

Finally! A book by someone who's knowledgeable about the subject of antiaging nutrition. I saw her on television and she really knows her stuff.
I've read a few popular antiaging books and I liked Positively Ageless better because it is written from the perspective of a nutritionist who is also a professional chef. She makes the subject easy and logical to understand. Her recipes sound and taste great. I even made two of them myself so far which is a first for me.

Cheryl Forberg has done it again! Having written or contributed to 9 books, Cheryl has once again given us a book packed with health information from start to finish! Everything for a woman's good health has been included and documented in this excellent and must read book. This book is packed with encouraging
chapters on improving good health and preventing measures that would be damaging to a womans health.
What to eat, how to diet, and how to improve appearance and energy levels are all here for taking and applying. Many questions on a womans health and illness are written in great detail with medical back-up and expertise. I highly recommend this positive read which so beautifully answers questions on many health levels and leaves one feeling, "yes, I can!"

Having read Stop the Clock Cooking a few years ago, I was excited to see this new book by this author. The book not only talks about food choices and recommendations, but about the science behind them and their impact on key body functions...easy and not complicated.

First we want to grow up; then, we want to look younger! Positively Ageless gives advice on how to take care of ourselves inside and out. I've met Cheryl Forberg and she is a perfect example of practicing what she preaches. This book touches upon every aspect of maintaining health and the recipes are doable and delicious. That's what I want to be --'positively ageless'. Thanks.

As the editor of DolceDolce.com I reveiw dozens of anti-aging books as well as cook books. Cheryl as captured the best of both. Her recipes are mouth watering. You can tell a chef was at work in this book. Her health information is fabulous. She doesn't miss a trick: skin, hair bones, weight, she covers it all. She lets you know what and how to eat to stay healthy, vital, vigorous, --and ageless. This is a great reference book for women of all ages; shop with it and cook with it!

For those of us wanting to keep our bodies healthy and as "ageless" as we can, this book is a hit! The easy to understand examples (like the oxidizing apple...) are great, and the no-nonsense research is fascinating and well-written. And the recipes are terrific too -- so far, of the 4 I've tried, all are yummy! Great book...
