About Francy Pillo-Blocka

I’m a non-finger wagging, relatable dietitian, funny, femme, foodie, aficionado, successful weight loser and nutrition communicator who tells it like it is. I balance work, spouse, family, house, travel, budgets, home, food and the works just like you do!

I am a north of 50, food lovin’ Italian, flexitarian, married to a food lovin’ Ukrainian, international man of mystery, who doubles as my tech support, photographer, confidant – the rock that I roll with. Dealing with work, food, fun, travelling and family (with a side order of guilt) is standard procedure. I tote a lunch to work and cook dinner most weeknights.

I’m a registered dietitian (RD) by trade with 25 years of experience in counselling, corporate, food and nutrition policy and communications. I'm on the popular Cookspiration App development team and am “Francy the Foodie” for AboutKidsHealth at Sick Kids Hospital. I am a member and co-chair of Health Canada’s Food Expert Advisory Committee (FEAC) and past President and CEO of the Canadian Council of Food and Nutrition (CCFN), Francy Pillo-Blocka RD FDC by name. I have an opinion on most things “food”. And oh, I’m a blogger by night at "Through Thick and Thin".

This book is so great, so easy and so relatable I hope everyone reads it.

There are so many books available that aim to motive people and help them plan but this book really makes it make sense and makes it so manageable!
I don't think I have ever lost weight I have had various ranges of consumption and activity but my weight/body has been either constant or increasing… I finally see evidence that I have control!

I bought this for my wife and she absolutely loves it! She finds it both funny and informative. She has begun to incorporate some of the tips and tricks into her daily routine and is feeling better for it. I am looking forward to reading it when she is finished.

This book is geared towards women but the message of how to control your weight by adjusting some of your eating and exercising habits is effective for both genders. As a man reading this book I found it to be very informative in an easy to read and entertaining format. Francy Pillo-Blocka uses humor and personal experiences to show how easy it is to follow this method to reach a person's weight and health goals.
