Author: Dianne Bailey, CSCS
Book: Eating Simply



Please tell us a little about yourself and what prompted you to write a book:

I am the owner and head trainer at The Conditioning Classroom, a personal training studio in Denver, CO.  We always discuss nutrition with our clients and they were always bugging us to share recipes with them.  So we decided to put our philosophy of eating, along with a few recipes, into a book.

Please tell us a little about your book:

If you have ever struggled with the idea of healthy eating… here is your motivation, your guide and your easy-to-read implementation tool that will make every day a simply healthy day, adding vitality to you and everyone in your family! Discover: How to Eat Simply for weight loss Tips to simplify your food life A Pick and Choose list for simple meal creation Sample simple meals How to create a simple refrigerator salad bar 34 simple recipes and lots more.

How long did it take you to finish your book?

About 6 months.

Do you offer your book as an ebook? Yes

What has been the most challenging aspect of self-publishing and what suggestions would you give to a new author?

Our book needed to be very graphically oriented.  It needed to be visually appealing and inviting . . . not just words on a page.  So, our relationship with our graphic designer was critical in this process.  Know your own talents and then be willing to hire other professionals to help with the things that are not your strengths.
