Bob Greene - National Chocolate & Heart Health Month
Some of you may already know me from the books I've written. My first book, published in 1996 and co-authored with Oprah Winfrey, was Make the Connection: Ten Steps To A Better Body And A Better Life. It is about how to live a healthier life, and also about how I met Oprah and began working with her in her lifelong battle against weight. Oprah and I were thrilled when the book became #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers list, and we went on to write another, A Journal of Daily Renewal: The Companion to Make the Connection. More recently, you may have seen my articles in O Magazine-I'm a regular contributor-- and hopefully you've seen and read my other books, among them Keep the Connection: Choices for a Better Body and a Healthier Life; Get With the Program!; and Get With the Program!: Guide to Good Eating. To my delight, both Get With the Program! books have been The New York Times and Amazon.com best sellers.
Anyone whose books have been popular would be overjoyed, but I am particularly happy about their successes because it means my message is getting out. It's my goal to help as many people as possible commit to a healthier "and happier lifestyle. I don't want to say I'm a fanatic on the subject, but I do truly believe that exercising and eating healthfully can change your life for the better. I want you to know that making health-conscious choices can ultimately make you look and feel absolutely wonderful.
