My dear friend Dr. Melina Jampolis is going to be back on Regis and Kelly for the 4th time. She’s the person who introduced me to the producers and got me on the show when my book came out. I wont be on the show this time, but I will be in the green room hanging out with Jack Black!
Dr. Melina Jampolis is a San Francisco, California, physician nutrition specialist – a specialty practiced by only about 200 physicians in the United States. She focuses exclusively on nutrition for weight loss and disease prevention and treatment.
Melina believes wholeheartedly in the role of nutrition in preventive medicine and achieving optimal health. She teaches a realistic, balanced and manageable lifestyle-based eating and exercise program and has helped thousands of clients improve their health and well-being over the past several years. Her real passion is to bridge the gap between the experts who talk about the latest nutrition and diet research and the “real-life” food and exercise choices that people face daily.
She lectures throughout the country and has written for various publications about nutrition and weight-loss-related topics, discussing strategies for healthy holiday eating, healthy kids’ snacks, easy breakfasts on the go and nutrition in the news. She is also the author of “The No-Time-to-Lose Diet: The Busy Person’s Guide to Permanent Weight Loss.” She hosted a program on the Discovery Network’s FitTV titled “FitTV’s Diet Doctor,” evaluating different diet plans and applying them to real people.
I am pretty darn lucky to have such an incredible friend! Make sure to watch her on the air Monday morning!
