David Medansky is a retired divorce attorney turned international best-selling author located just west of Phoenix in Waddell, Arizona. Several years ago, he had a doctor who told him he either needed to make some healthy changes or get a new doctor; and that was the start of his own weight-loss journey. David speaks about his experience with a sudden diet change and some of the ups and downs associated with that and how it led him to do additional research on the topic, comparing new and old literature. In the end, David wrote a book as he was inspired to share with others how to improve their eating habits so they can lose weight, have more energy, feel better, look better, and be healthier without going on a diet. David teaches how to eat healthier without needing to buy expensive meals, supplements, or products and without having to follow an exercise program or count calories. His latest book that will be forthcoming in November is filled with stories and anecdotes designed to help change the narrative people have running in their heads, taking negative thoughts and habits and switching them out for positive affirmations and declarations which, in turn, help with the mental battle of making good choices without needing to buy expensive meals, supplements, or products and without having to follow an exercise program or count calories.

In this episode, David talks about how he left his high-stress career and started writing books, first on strategies for the casino game craps, some novels, and now three books on healthy sustainable weight loss. He has done coaching with clients in person, on the phone, and online; but at this time, he is primarily pouring his wisdom into his books and hoping that the simple stories and easy-to-remember tips will truly help people. David shares some tips also for people who work from home now because of COVID-19 or other reasons and need to learn how to handle being around food and other distractions all day. Anyone interested in his books can find them by searching his name in Amazon and keep an eye out for his third book - Break the Chains of Dieting coming out in November.
