Experience

Lisa Lillien is a former writer for Verywell Fit covering healthy eating. She's a New York Times bestselling author and the creator of the Hungry Girl brand, a free daily email service that entertains and informs hungry people everywhere. Lisa is a typical woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. She considers herself a “foodologist,” not because she has some kind of fancy degree, but because she is obsessed with food—how wonderful it is, and how much she enjoys eating.

Nearly 3 million email subscribers and social media followers eagerly await Hungry Girl’s recipes, food finds, and tips & tricks each weekday. What started as a daily email to friends and family has turned into a nationwide, multimedia phenomenon!

Lisa is the author of 11 New York Times best-selling books—six of which debuted at number one on the list. Her newest book, "Hungry Girl Clean & Hungry: Easy All-Natural Recipes for Healthy Eating in the Real World," was released in April of 2016. She has also starred in a top-rated cooking show on both Food Network and Cooking Channel.

A self-proclaimed "mad scientist" in the kitchen, Lisa dishes out easy and delicious recipes, healthy eating tips and tricks, supermarket finds, and survival guides for real-world eating situations.

Hungry Girl is not a nutritionist. She's just hungry.
