More About the Author

Although it might be hard to believe that a formerly morbidly obese person could earn national acclaim for helping hundreds of people take control of their health and habits, Charles D'Angelo has done exactly that.

A decade ago, the idea of such a bright and promising future would have been incomprehensible to Charles. He was a teenager, morbidly obese, miserable and had resigned himself to lifetime of lonely nights spent gorging on junk food in front of the TV.

It took one sudden, terrifying experience to help Charles make the decision that saved his life. In a matter of years, he was able to change not only his body - going from wearing a size-50 pant to having an enviably lean, muscular physique - but also his entire world. Through his own transformation, which included extensive studies of the masters of psychology, Charles learned that success starts in the mind. Armed with this newfound knowledge, determination and an arsenal of valuable strategies, he set out on a mission to improve as many lives as possible.

With each new success story, Charles became known for creating remarkable transformations in the minds, bodies, and spirits of all those he coached.While he's not a doctor, personal trainer, dietician, or nutritionist, his success in helping people transform surpasses that of many of the nation's most respected professionals in these fields.

In fact, many doctors, therapists, dieticians and personal trainers have sought his personal counsel and even recommended his approach to healthy living. His secret? Fitness success is not found in the science of nutrition, it's found in the mastering of your own thoughts!

Many of Charles' clients, including CEOs and nationally recognized politicians, have traveled thousands of miles to seek his help as their personal coach. Although he regrets that he can't counsel the country's more than 200 million overweight citizens personally, he knows that by sharing the strategies that have helped so many in Think and Grow Thin, he will be well on his way to creating a healthier, happier world.

KNOW YE THIS :

I have been a client of Charles for several months now, and I have lost over 40 pounds using the system outlined in this book.

When I began the program outlined in this book I was :

1) Clinically Obese
2) Poorly Controlled Diabetic with an A1C of 9.6
3) Poorly Controlled High Blood Pressure
4) Poorly Controlled High Cholesterol
5) Was taking 7 (SEVEN!) Oral Medications. 3 For Diabetes. 2 for High BP. 2 for High Cholesterol

12 Weeks Later :

1) Medically Diagnosed : No Longer Obese. 42 lbs dropped.
2) Medically Diagnosed : No More High BP - WITHOUT Medication. BP = 110/65
3) Medically Diagnosed : No Longer Diabetic - WITHOUT Medication. A1C = 4.2
4) Medically Diagnosed : No More High Cholesterol - WITHOUT Medication. Chol = 141
5) Taking 0 (ZERO!) Medications (doctor urged me to keep taking 1 BP med as a "preventative")

Simply put - this program works.

This is no fad, no gimmick, and does not come in a bottle.

When people ask me how this system works - I jokingly tell them Its two miracle drugs: One is called "exercise" and the other is called "eating right".
That is exactly what you will find in these pages. A simple, straightforward method of exercising and eating right that works.

The menu is simple and straightforward and contains only common items from your every day grocery store. Period. Nothing exotic. Nothing expensive. Nor will you starve to death. The "refuel" night insures that you have one meal a week where you can eat pretty much anything you like (except FRIED foods!) without guilt, and without destroying a week of hard work. It works. Period.

In March 2009 I was diagnosed with lupus, sjorgens and osteoarthritis in both knees. After years of symptoms I was happy to hear that something was actually wrong and I was not crazy. After one year of being "treated" by various doctors of various specialties I was miserable and simply did not want to live a life in pain anymore. My boss and mentor shared the best secret with me: Charles D'Angelo. Since mid February 2009, I have lost 86 pounds to date. But what's better is that my latest lab work shows normal inflammation and antibody levels. I have always been overweight. I have tried numerous diets and weight-loss systems. This is doable. It has changed my life. Not just my weight, or lab results, my entire life. D'Angelo's tools have helped me re-prioritize many aspects in my life and the end result is a happier, higher quality existence. I can never thank him enough. HIGHLY recommended for people who have had a lifelong struggle with weight. It works, period.

Charles D'Angelo's "Think and Grow Thin" is an outstanding resource for those who are serious about wanting to lose weight and improve their health. Charles' personal story will touch and inspire you and his practical strategies will help you achieve your goal. He has a great style of writing - very engaging - and the book is filled with strategies, success stories, menu plans, recipes, and exercise tips. Most importantly, his approach will change the way you THINK about food. I have two good friends who have been successful working with Charles - both lost over 70 pounds. I had just about given up hope of ever losing this weight. BUT I've been following Charles' plan just over 12 weeks and have lost 40 pounds (halfway to my goal!) I highly recommend this book and his plan for anyone who wants to lose weight. It works!

UPDATE March 2013
I'm coming up on the one year mark in a few weeks. Total weight loss was 82 pounds. Have kept the weight off - by being vigilant and by working out a ton. This plan works folks. When you decide you're ready to lose, Charles can help. Definitely recommend working with Charles one-on-one if you can. If that won't work, pick up the book, find a friend to help hold you accountable, and get on the road to health and fitness. Working with Charles changed my life dramatically. . .and if I can do it, you can do it.

UPDATE: March 2014
Yep . . close to the two year mark. I am about 5 pounds over my goal weight. Still. When I have a few pounds creep up, I go back on the plan. My life has TOTALLY changed as a result of working with Charles. I spend lots of time at the gym now - because I want to! I will say it again: If I can do it, YOU can do it. Just stay focused on the goal, and stay committed. The pounds will fall off.

TODAY IS DEC 12, 2011.

SPEAKING from a personal "Journey with Charles" AS A PATIENT since July 1, 2011, I MYSELF am a physician and surgeon in practice for 20+ years AND have tried multiple weight loss and life control routines.
.
CHARLES D'ANGELO helped ME to gain control over my eating and its effect on my life, again I reiterate, HELPED ME to do it and realize the proper techniques! As he states, he EMPOWERS YOU and gives you all the right tools for success because yes, ONLY YOU CAN DO IT!! I HAVE LOST 81 LBS SINCE JULY 1, 2011 WITH ONLY PROPER DIET AND LIMITED SENSIBLE EXERCISE.
It's ALL IN THE BOOK IN WONDERFUL AND EASY TO FOLLOW DETAIL but let me EMPHASIZE:

1) ACCOUNTABILTY !!!!!!

2) DON'T THINK ABOUT FOOD ALL THE TIME BUT BE PREPARED, HAVE THINGS READY FOR CONSUMPTION WITHIN A BUSY SCHEDULE AND LIMIT YOURSELF TO THOSE PORTIONS

3) EXERCISE IS VITAL COMPONENT BUT MOST IMPORTANT ARE THE THINGS YOU EAT, THEIR QUANTITIES AND SPACED CONSUMPTION; WITH HIS PLAN YOU ARE SATIATED WITH NORMAL FOODS EASY TO OBTAIN IN ANY GROCERY

DON'T PUT OFF THE JOURNEY ANY LONGER. THERE ARE YEARS OF PRODUCTIVE HAPPINESS FOR THOSE WHO DARE TO ALLOW THEMSELVES THE OPPORTUNITY. YOU CAN GAIN CONTROL.

CHECK IT OUT!!
