Linda Goff had to find budget-friendly way to lose half of her body weight and keep it off for good. The Skinny Budget Diet was born.

About the Author

Linda Goff was obese for more than 20 years. She was told by a professor at one of the top journalism schools in the nation that her “look” wasn’t professional enough for television. When Linda left the university, she believed she had wasted four years of her life and thousands of dollars on an education that she could never use because of her size. God had other plans.
After her 155-pound weight loss, Linda quietly began writing again. She was hooked. A blog grew into a talk show on the CTN network and a weekly newspaper column - reaching thousands of readers every week with her message of healthy weight loss. Now Linda speaks with groups around the country and runs a comfort food test kitchen with her family and friends as official “tasters.” To get her latest low-cal comfort recipes, visit

Linda Goff, author of The Skinny Budget Diet, has been featured in Prevention and Women’s World Magazines, and has been a guest on NBC’s Today Show – all as advertised on her books front cover. Why all the attention? Well, because once upon a time, Linda was obese. Due to this fact, Goff’s conversationally informative book is ideal for anyone struggling with obesity who has tried diet after diet with little or no success. Despite what the book’s title claims, Goff says she does not offer yet another fad diet, but a way to gradually change eating and exercise habits in order to stay healthier and stronger, longer. While most of her tips are geared for readers who are heavily obese and may not know where to begin when it comes to weight loss, there are plenty of suggestions that can help those with only a few pounds to lose get them off and keep them away. With suggestions about everything from starting small and staying persistent to how and when to go grocery shopping, Goff weaves a vein of budget-saving asides throughout a book that more closely focuses on weight management, in the hopes that many of her overweight readers will find it easier to both lose weight and save money by skipping the drive thru and spending a few more minutes planning out meals before that trip to the supermarket. Although it isn’t necessary to buy a book to figure out Goff’s basic premise – that in order to lose weight all that’s necessary is to burn more calories than are consumed each day – The Skinny Budget Diet does provide quite a few practical tips for how to encourage yourself to do so and save some money in the process.

She told her personal story which was interesting but this is not a diet plan and had nothing to do with dieting on a budget.
