audrey Johns Publishes her first book: Lose weight by eating By Heather Young
udrey Johns’ first cookbook, “Lose Weight by Eating,” was released in mid-April and is already into its second print run after selling out with numerous retailers both online and in-store.
Her cookbook, which was published with William Morrow, a subsidiary of HarperCollins Publishers, was a labor of love after she lost 150 pounds by tweaking the ingredients of her favorite foods, which allowed her to eat more, while not taking in more calories. “I want to have all the food I want and not feel guilty,” Johns said. After moving to Atascadero from Southern California, she found that in order to get a lot of the ethnic food she loved, and craved, she had to make it herself. “Basically, I lost 150 pounds just by eating,” Johns said. “I was not able to go to the gym [because I was having surgeries].”
