Things You Need to Watch and Read...
Piper Meets HG - This is a MUST-WATCH for HG fans. Seriously. If you don't
know Piper of PipersPicks.tv, you should. She's a sassy and adorable 9-year-
old who has her own web show. She mostly focuses on entertainment for
tweens, but she recently devoted an entire episode to Hungry Girl. Lisa &
Piper got together for a candid interview and some Double-Trouble Chocolate
Trifle mischief. Check it all out here, and prepare to fall in love with Piper
Reese. Also, if you have kids (or know any!), make sure they tune in to see
Piper's past episodes. Piper's Picks = good times. (BTW, Super Hungry Girl
makes a VERY RARE appearance in this video!) CLICK, CLICK, CLICK!!!!
What's Your Diet Type? - This book by Heather K. Jones, a registered
dietitian and true HG pal, comes out TOMORROW. Along with co-authors Mary
Miscisin and Ed Redard, Heather helps you determine your diet personality
and matches you up with a plan for achieving your weight management
goals. This book is very useful, super-interesting, and easy to read. Hungry
Girl 200 Under 200 isn't the only must-read release this season...
You the Movie - We know this isn't really food-related, but IT'S COOL. HG's
Lisa recently met Melora Hardin (a.k.a. Jan from The Office) on a flight from
LA to NY. While chatting over guilt-free plane snacks, Melora spilled the
beans about her newest project called You, a film she directed, produced,
and stars in along with her husband (who also wrote it). It is a completely
BEAUTIFUL movie, so we had to tell YOU the subscribers all about it. Click
here to see a trailer, and here to order or download the film. TOTALLY worth

heard of Bob Greene, Oprah's personal trainer and the man behind The Best
Life Diet. Bob touts the real-world approach to eating better and dieting that
HG is all about. You've probably seen his seal of approval on a slew of our
favorite food finds like The Skinny Cow Truffle Bars (mmmmmmm). And he's

additions that are lower in sugar, sodium, and/or fat. New stuff will include
turkey bacon, chicken sausage, wheat pancakes, egg whites, fresh fruit,
dippable veggie sticks (great for kids), and more. Good deal, D! But
remember, just because something's labeled "healthy," doesn't necessarily
mean it's guilt-free. So keep an eye out for the nutritionals! ***Ever wonder

extracted and piled up on a table?! Even if you haven't, you'll likely find this
website mesmerizing. Click here to see the ALARMING amounts of sugar
found in everyday foods. ACK! ***Heads up! Select Starbucks locations are
