Colleen Fields

Colleen FieldsColleen Fields is a lifelong food enthusiast and healthy lifestyle convert who has lost more  than 100 pounds and gone from a size 26w to a size 12 by marrying these two passions. As a single, working mother of two, Colleen struggled with her weight for years and tried every diet out there without success. Always enjoying  cooking and good food,  she found herself a constant  companion at her mother’s side in the kitchen as a young child.  Beginning  her weight loss journey, she realized that her cooking style needed to change. Frustrated to find the only “healthy” cookbooks and television shows available focused on deprivational diets rather than behavioral changes she began experimenting and creating her own healthy dishes and sharing her triumphs and newly developed scrumptious dishes through her online networks. Today, she maintains her healthy weight and offers her recipes for success through her food blog,, videos, and cookbooks. Colleen hopes to serve as inspiration, offering simple, sustainable tools, obtainable healthy and weight loss goals and, a clear message for those struggling with the same issues she faced most of her adult life.
