Author Graydon Millerabout this book: I wrote for somebody just like you. It's your cheat sheet, the skinny on skinny—truly a diet to lighten up your mind and body. That is my simple message: lighten up now. My passion is sharing what I have learned so you can get where you want to be, exponentially faster, better, easier. It's that simple. I have the profound belief you can do it. If not you, who? If not now, when?

The Grady Diet all started when I gained weight for a movie role, and afterward, the extra 30 pounds gained for the movie didn't come off as planned. Pretty funny, huh? I groped for a way to lick the weight and endured frustrations. I read, talked to people, kept my ears tuned for good tips and put them into action. Pretty soon I assembled an offbeat set of habits and practices that worked for me and discovered foods that made me feel good and that I could eat without deprivation. Also, I had the phenomenal results to display: I dropped 70 pounds and seven pants sizes in under a year.

People kept asking me for my secret. From a little seed the book grew and flowered—ten tips I wrote up for a guy at the dry cleaners who was taken aback by how many inches a pair of my suit pants had to be taken in. From there, the Grady Diet grew into a couple of comical how-to essays: how to gain and how to lose. It debuted as a large-font pamphlet at the West Hollywood book Fair in 2008. Fast-forward to the eBook now exclusively on Kindle, full of new information and discoveries, cartoons, and Sparky's ladder—an at-a-glance chart of seven key steps of the Grady Diet. This book grew magically, effortlessly as stone soup seasoned by the Grady difference, levity applied to the usually dour topic of dieting—all because people like you kept asking my secret.

Maybe you now have a pebble in your shoe: lingering unhappiness about your shape and how you feel. Be ready when you open Lighten Up Now to relinquish all that. I hope to share with you the shamelessly simple steps to remove that pebble for good and attain a true and lasting state of contentment with yourself.
