Lisa Lillien Guides Listeners To Guilt-Free Foods In The Grocery Store From Her Book Hungry Girl Supermarket Survival


Lisa Lillien is not a nutritionist—she’s just hungry.

Lisa describes herself as “just an average female,” struggling with the same food issues most females struggle with every day. She considers herself a foodologist…not because she has some kind of fancy degree, but because she is obsessed with food. Food is her passion and it has been her lifelong obsession.

I love food because food is delicious. My mantra, as many of my friends know, is “I’m hungry!” Because I obsess over food, I learn about it, read about it, research it, dream about it. Nothing gives me a thrill like discovering a new low cal snack or assembling a no fat pizza! Over the years my food obsession has caused me to accumulate approximately a zillion diet and food tips, and because I am not only hungry, but also very nice, I want to share them with you.

She struggled with weight issues for most of my life, and aside from the occasional slice of molten chocolate cake, she finally has it under control.

About three years ago she decided to change her way of eating and for a full year she gave up flour, bread, pasta and starches. She said bye-bye to dry carbs and hello to 14 glasses of water a day and she dropped almost 30 lbs. (and three sizes). Now she basically follows the Weight Watchers point system and strives to keep her dry carb intake to a minimum.

Losing and maintaining weight is not a temporary change—it’s a lifestyle— but it doesn’t mean that life gets less fun. She scour supermarkets, restaurants and more to fulfill the cravings of her former lifestyle with replacement choices—from low calorie ice cream sundaes to low carb donuts, she’s always at the forefront of the latest trends in food and dieting, living the Hungry Girl lifestyle and loving what she eats!
