ABC News Correspondent Mara Schiavocampo seems to have it all together! She's a working mom and wife, successfully balancing her personal life with her professional role on ABC Network News.  But in her new book, “Thinspired: How I Lost 90 Pounds" she shares her personal journey of self acceptance and weight loss.

 
In her book, Mara shares her "Magic Formula" to weigh loss, which is mainly focused on the food you eat!

As a television broadcaster, I am constantly searching for tips from other journalists on how to balance a hectic work schedule with a busy personal life.  Mara was completely transparent, as she shared her struggle with her own eating disorder while finding balance in her life.  She described herself as a binge eater, addicted to twinkies, donuts and pizza.  She now lives by the motto, "Great Bodies are made in the kitchen not the gym! " She says the biggest factor to her 90 pound weight loss was changing her diet!  After reading the book, I wanted to learn more!   ABC News featured Schiavocampo, by sharing her personal images of her food and family!
