Times best selling author and renowned nutritionist, Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., C.N.S.  These events will take place at the most prominent health food stores in the Greater Boston area during the week of June 21st.

Ann Louise Gittleman is a leading specialist in the areas of Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) research and supplementation and has helped millions of Americans achieve better health and weight loss through the use of healthy fats, such as those found in nutritional oils. The use of essential and healthy fats has been a continuing major theme throughout Gittleman’s distinguished career.


With a passion for healthy living and an extraordinary breadth of knowledge regarding all aspects of nutrition, Gittleman has written over 20 books, including the international best sellers, The Fat Flush Plan and Before The Change. Highly respected as a dynamic speaker and savvy media personality, Ann Louise will be visiting premier centers of influence and health information in key Boston area communities.  Her lectures will focus on the importance of EFA supplementation for overall health and weight loss.  The lectures will be followed by a Q&A period and a book signing.


Ann Louise Gittleman’s Fat Flush Plan has recently been featured in Time Magazine (May 3, 2004) and Glamour (June 2004). She has appeared on CNN Headline News, Dr Phil, and The View.  Gittleman is also a well-known columnist for First for Women Magazine. Her wildly popular Fat Flush program is even referred to in the brand new Paramount film, Mean Girls.
