While I don’t hold any of the fancy nutrition titles (I’ll leave that to Beth and our guest bloggers), I’m passionate about eating healthy and living an active lifestyle. When I’m not bringing you the latest nutrition news, you can find me combing through Pinterest for the newest low-cal recipes or at the CrossFit gym. My absolute favorite food is dark chocolate and my favorite meal of the day is breakfast! I’m originally from New York but my home is in Atlanta now. Feel free to send me an email or comment on one of the posts if you have any questions!
Blogger, Lauren Godinez
In recent years, I’ve become obsessed with eating healthy and making fitness a part of my daily life. Like Katie, I also don’t have any fancy nutrition titles, but I do a lot of reading and research into what will help me get into –and stay in– the best shape of my life. And yes, my witty sense of humor plays into my posts -it keeps it fun. Aside from blogging, you can find me hunting down low-carb/high protein recipes and doing circuit training at my local gym. I love rock n’ roll, I love to travel and I adore watching sports (MLB, NHL, UFC, NCAA Football). Tweet me @SkinnyOnLowCal if you have any questions!

About The Calorie Control Council
From low-cal and sugar-free foods and beverages, recipes and exercise, to facts about calories – theskinnyonlowcal.org covers important tips and advice you need to know about making a healthy lifestyle work for you. With all of the conflicting information floating around the Internet and in the media about dieting, weight loss and calories, it’s hard to discern what really works and what doesn’t. And how to separate fact from fiction. Here you will get “the skinny” on topics such as calories, how to lose weight and keep it off, and specific information about low-calorie sweeteners (such as aspartame, which is used as a sugar substitute in so many of your favorite sugar-free foods and beverages). And along with factual information, theskinnyonlowcal.org provides tools such as calorie calculators and calorie counters to guide you toward sensible, healthy and sustainable weight loss.
theskinnyonlowcal.org is brought to you by the Calorie Control Council, a non-profit international trade association established in 1966. The Calorie Control Council is comprised of companies that make low-calorie, reduced-fat and lighter versions of your favorite foods and beverages. Since its inception, the Council has fostered communication among a wide variety of audiences about the importance of “sensible dieting” – controlling calories, increasing physical activity and making permanent changes in eating and exercise habits. For more than four decades, the Council has served as a respected and credible information source about healthy lifestyles, weight management, low calorie sweeteners, and obesity issues.
