MARILU HENNER, AUTHOR, ACTRESS is an award-winning star of stage, screen and television (TV’s Taxi and Evening Shade, Broadway’s Chicago) and New York Times best-selling author of 7 books dealing with restoring and maintaining health and raising healthy children (Total Health Makeover, Marilu Henner’s 30-Day Total Health Makeover, Healthy Life Kitchen, Healthy Holidays and Healthy Kids to name a few).
These books address her years of being overweight and stifled by bad health and her journey of discovery to good health. They are stories of Marilu’s own trial and error, noting the connections made and compulsions untangled through knowledge, observation, and understanding. It helps us reevaluate our ideas of fitness, debunks the quick-fix diet, and gives us a holistic approach to health that can be maintained for a lifetime. Her philosophy is culled from years of experience, and it is all based on a personal quest to combat unnecessary health risks and adapt an overall “sense” of our body’s needs.
She has co-starred with some of Hollywood’s leading men and worked with some of the best directors in Hollywood and on Broadway. She believes that with good health you can do it all. She has an incredible amount of energy, replenished constantly with good health and compatible habits. It is the key to managing the hectic pace of being Marilu Henner.
