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.

Ok, I am going to give this to you straight. Maybe you are on the fence about purchasing this book. Afterall, there are so many "diet" books that promise miracle weight loss. It is all so frustrating AND confusing. Before I met Charles I tried Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, NutraSystem, Adkins, Southbeach, Cabbage Soup, Mayo Clinic, you name it! Then I found Charles. Before he wrote this book, I paid a healthy sum to have him as my weight coach. I had heard that Charles worked with "celebrity" clients, so I was intrigued, but skeptical. But I was really at the end of myself, borderline diabetes, high blood pressure, and I did good just to get out of bed in the morning. I topped out at 390 pounds and was headed dangerously down a collision course.

When I first heard Charles lay out his plan, I was surprised by its simplicity. I wasn't sure I could eat like that and still lose weight. Well, within a couple of weeks I was down close to 23 pounds! Wow, I thought, I can do this! Was it easy? No. But finally, FINALLY, I had a plan that was workable, and successful for me.

Fast forward a few months. I moved away and could no longer meet with Charles face to face. I talked with him by phone a few times, and his advise was always dead on. He helped me understand that weight loss is as much a mental issue as a physiological one. You have to make some decisions about how you are going to approach life. But when you do, the World looks different!

I recently entered a contest on a site that rewards people for losing weight. Five family members signed up with a goal of losing 16.6% of our body weight in 12 weeks! I was thrilled to find that Charles had written a book. All of those principles that I paid big bucks to find out, and it was all right there in a book.
