Foreword for Dr. Lee Coyne’s book by Elaine Kupser

I have worked with Dr. Lee Coyne since the early 1980's, during the fitness boom, while working in the health club industry. Dr. Coyne would speak to our members on health and nutrition, and I remember how all of us literally hung onto his every word, absorbing as much as possible from this wonderful expert. Lee was truly ahead of his time.

When I founded IMPACT Magazine in 1991, I knew that I would want Dr. Coyne on our prestigious list of advisory board members, and I was grateful when he accepted. Over the years, Dr. Coyne has contributed exceptional editorial pieces on health and nutrition for our readers, easily becoming one of IMPACT's most popular contributors.

As the publisher of a highly credible health & fitness magazine, where our readers count on us for leading edge editorial content, there is no one who has delivered like Dr. Lee Coyne, issue after issue.

Dr. Coyne delivers information that is research-based, "matter-of-fact", interesting, highly valuable, and most of all, trustworthy.

Whether a person is looking for weight management, nutrition for athletics, or good basic health and nutrition advice, I don't know anyone that I would turn to before Dr. Coyne.

I have personally changed the way I eat, from day to day, to training for sport, because of the incredible information I have learned from Dr. Lee Coyne. He is my “nutrition coach” and helped me prepare for my first two marathons this year . His advice was invaluable. From this day forward, I will never eat another meal without my protein!

Foreword #2 for Dr. Lee Coyne’s book

It is not everyday that you cross paths with someone so adept and accomplished in their field that every time you hear them speak you learn something. Dr. Lee Coyne is one of those people.

The dieting and weight-loss fads that have taken over the market place have completely fooled people into believing that a “quick fix” exists. Dr. Coyne has taught myself as well as hundreds of my clients that the only fix is a lifestyle change and that nutrition is 80% of health. I have documented my client’s results in Fit Start and the daily newspapers and let over a quarter million people per issue be the judge of how we have done. With Dr. Coyne leading the way, the results, as usual are fantastic. I believe and teach that in meeting your goals, you get out what you put in, and Dr. Coyne has illustrated how to effectively make simple changes so effort is directed correctly.

All too many times people subscribe to gym memberships and exercise videos and soon give up because they can’t seem to lose weight or change their bodies composition. I have seen enormous changes in people’s physiques, health and outlook on life by simply applying Dr. Coyne's fundamental nutrition tips. What is amazing is that, as he says, Dr. Coyne is an educator not an innovator, and that is where his gift lies. Making people understand how their body works and how to best get the most out of it.

I have also seen countless individuals eliminate cholesterol medications, diabetes medications, stomach distress and a host of other conditions, entirely from their lives. When you focus on treating your body as an asset the weight loss or other goals fall into place.

If health is a priority for you, follow these simple but highly effective tips and let Dr. Coyne show you how to achieve it.
