About the Author
Cassy Joy Garcia is the creative force behind the popular food blog, fedandfit.com. She is a Nutrition Consultant, creator of "The Fed+Fit Project: A 28-Day Food and Fitness Self Study," and voice behind the weekly Fed+Fit Podcast.
After years of fruitless dieting, Cassy found herself 24 years old, with extreme joint pain, fatigue, mental fog, and at her largest, most uncomfortable size. In an effort to learn more about why her health was declining, she took to nutrition research. After just one year of implementing her newfound wellness practices, she lost 10 dress sizes, lived pain-free, and experienced more energy than ever before. Eager to share her healthy living secrets with the world, she started her recipe blog, fedandfit.com, in 2011.
Since then, she has become a Nutrition Consultant and leads people through her Fed+Fit Project each month so that they, too, can achieve their health and wellness goals without ever dieting again. She also regularly shares valuable free information on her weekly Podcast, blog, YouTube series, and social media outlets.
Juli Bauer was once called the Chelsea Handler of Paleo. She's not sure if it was intended as a compliment, but that is how she is taking it. Juli is out to make you laugh on her website and in her newest cookbook. And if you don't laugh, she'll teach you how. Juli is the New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Kitchen and the creator of one of the most-visited Paleo websites, PaleOMG. She started her website to share her homemade Paleo meals, but now it's where she shares her life stories and experiences. From fitness to fashion to body image issues, you'll find it all on paleomg.com. When Juli isn't in the kitchen, she's coaching or working out in her CrossFit gym, feeding her passion for fitness. Or you'll find her on the couch, cuddling with her French bulldog, Jackson. They are best friends. They reside together in Denver, Colorado, continuously loving the sunshine.

Should be titled Fed&Fit&Free—free of self-sabotaging expectations, free of one-size-fits-all rules, and free to find your own way to a you whom you love. You have plenty of info and support in the book and online, and if you need a more directive plan to be successful, that’s there, too. I failed, failed, failed—on a huge array of plans, as well as some that I designed for myself from all the knowledge I gained through the previous failures. This is the first and only resource that’s worked for me for more than a week or so. My energy level has sky-rocketed—although I admit that the first few days of changing out a post-work, feet-up glass of wine for a short walk with my dog were painful. Now, I find the walk just as relaxing and plan to stick with it past the more stringent, first 30 days. Buy a paper copy so you can easily make notes on the recipes and elsewhere about what works for you. Page flag info you want to reread for inspiration. I HATE journaling, but I am keeping a very minimalist list of insights about foods that make me feel better, not-so-good or downright yucky—no matter how good they still taste going down :) BTW, food is only one of four pillars. Garcia’s choice is Paleo, which works for me because I love meat, but I’m sure it would also work for vegans and vegetarians with other non-stressor protein sources. The point is to eliminate chemicals and natural substances, like gluten, that cause many folks problems for one month so that you can be in control as you reintroduce them (if you decide you want to) and see which you can eat without feeling ill effects. Two of the other pillars are water and sleep. Couldn’t be easier, unless I could learn to drink water in my sleep, LOL. I started those first; I immediately felt better; and that gave me a boost to introduce exercise and, finally, food. The recipes are yummy and easy if you cook at all. Organics are spendy if you aren’t already eating them, but you can do this on a budget with a little label reading and the cost-controlling advice both in the book and online. Garcia changed her life and now she and co-author Bauer are changing mine. Thank you both!!
