Featured Title

In her latest book, From Fat to Fit: Turn Yourself into a Weapon of Mass Reduction, Carole is on a mission to communicate her empowering message: "You and your friends can have fun, get fit and lose weight!"

Just before turning 60, Carole totally remade her life. After chronicling her 62-pound weight loss—shrinking from a size 18 to a size 6—in weekly newspaper articles, she inspired more than 1,000 people to team up and lose nearly 8,000 pounds of fat in two months.

Dr. Henry S. Lodge, coauthor of the New York Times Best Seller Younger Next Year and Younger Next Year for Women, calls it "a remarkable book about the remarkable person inside each of us. Whenever you decide to take charge of the rest of your life, Carole Carson will be waiting to show you the way."

From Fat to Fit was named a finalist in the health and fitness category of the National Best Book 2007 Awards, sponsored by USABookNews.com
