About this title


“For most of my adult life, I was incarcerated in a body that wasn’t mine. My crime was food addiction. My weapons were a knife, spoon, and fork. My modus operandi was to eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted it, and to live as sedentary a life as possible. Much like a hardened criminal, I was given the maximum sentence with no chance of parole.” Who Are You Calling Obese? is the poignant and brutally honest story of one woman’s triumph over obesity and food addiction. This once obese single mom takes you inside the mind of a food addict. You will experience firsthand the shame, ridicule, and rejection felt daily by those who suffer from this debilitating illness. And you will shout for joy over the power of the human spirit to rise, like a phoenix from the ashes, when enough is enough. Who Are You Calling Obese? will.... · Help you understand the difference between being overweight and being obese · Expose the lengths a person will go to in order to deny an obesity diagnosis · Uncover unresolved issues that lead to obesity · Help you identify friends and family members that may be suffering from food addiction · Arm you with the tools and mindset to win the battle over obesity

About the Author:

As a certified personal trainer with the American Council on Exercise and a fitness enthusiast, Gwen Allman has inspired numerous transformations since beginning her weight loss journey. After receiving her exercise science certification from Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio, Gwen became a compassionate and outspoken advocate for exercise and nutrition education for the obese and morbidly obese client. She has worked diligently with the YMCA’s Move to Lose program; taught on the importance of sound nutrition and exercise to participants in the American Diabetes Association’s educational classes; developed individualized programs for countless clients who not only struggle with body image, but with emotional issues that are at the root of their overeating; all while enthusiastically supporting the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society with her donations and participation in their charity events. An ardent believer in the power of your words to transform your life, Gwen has garnered the trust and respect of clients and colleagues alike, who are inspired by her determination and zeal. “I’m not content with my own personal success if I can’t duplicate that same success in the lives of the people around me.” Through her Team Allman “Marathoners on a Mission” foundation and personal websites, Gwen has worked tirelessly to inspire others by openly sharing her personal stories of triumphs and defeat. Not one to hold anything back, Gwen has allowed readers and viewers inside her struggle with obesity, food addiction, relationships, and family. Her candid transparency has drawn a captive audience to her online websites. Gwen’s philosophy to lead by example has made her a hero, of sorts, to those prone to believe that conquering obesity is impossible. She is determined to see an end to obesity, and the illnesses associated with it, in her lifetime. Gwen Allman is also an accomplished classical pianist, singer, and songwriter. She has performed and traveled extensively with some of Dayton, Ohio’s well-known recording artists of the 70s and 80s.
