I'm not an educated person, I'm not a doctor or a dietician. I'm just a mum with a dream and I made my dream come true.
Young Melbourne wife and mother Karen Gatt was once so overweight at 136 kilos that she could barely walk to the letterbox. Her dream was to lose weight and live a normal, happy life – but even though she tried every diet plan, weight-loss potion, pill or gimmick, nothing worked. Then she took matters into her own hands and shed 67 kilos, safely, sensibly and permanently. She simply devised an easy-to-follow, highly effective system for healthy eating, and began regular exercise – power walking around the clothesline in her backyard.
The Clothesline Diet was first published in Australia in 2002. It became an instant hit, with its easy-to-understand message and fantastic success rate for all who tried Karen's program. In the seven years since, Karen has become a well-known face in the media extolling her diet and has tens of thousands of fans and followers across Australia. Her book is due to be published in the US in March 2010, with huge hype from the US publishers. Our new edition will contain more material from Karen that brings her story up to date.
