​Amanda Rose, Ph.D., is an avid food forager and founder of the weight loss community "Eat Like a Bear!", after having lost 140 pounds. A community primarily of older women, Amanda teaches an eating approach that combines a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting in a meal type she calls "The Ridiculously Big Salad," which already has over a dozen triple-digit (100+ pound) weight loss success cases behind it. The tagline for the community is: "No surgery, no drugs, no branded products. Required: Your own bootstraps." Indded, the approach is simple and requires no special foods, only strategic shopping. Beware: You may lose weight and save money at the same time. Find her book in print in the spring of 2020 and her online class here
