Something About Me and My Book:
I published "The Anti-Diet" in 1971 (Nash) and, after 40 years decided I had more to say on the topic, that its time had come. In September 2012, I self-published "The Anti-Diet: learning to be in the moment with food." It is a completely innovative how-to -- no rules, no regimen. I say that awareness is the key to weight loss and advise readers to "listen to their own drummer" and be their own guru.

Bio: Anti-Diet Author Lynn Donovan McCann

Born before the boomer generation, Lynn Donovan survived mid-1950s adolescence, graduated from Bennington College with a major in Dance, and settled in New York City, for good.  Her early career included work for stage, TV and film.  In the late 1960s, she took a day job, and her star rose as a copywriter at the ad agency that helped launch Ms. Magazine. 

Shortly after publication of the original Anti-Diet (1971), Lynn earned an M.S.W. degree and for several years maintained a private practice as a counselor/editor for writers whose projects were stalled en route to deadline.  She won several editorial awards for her contributions to a medical publication. 

To support an abiding passion for theatre, she trained as a COBOL programmer and consulted for 25 years in the banking and brokerage industry. This enabled Lynn to devote considerable time and energy to an off-off-Broadway theatre repertory company.  Recently, she’s appeared in Shakespeare, Chekhov, and Ensler.  An accomplished singer, Lynn continues to perform at a weekly workshop among her peers. 

In addition to this fully revised edition of The Anti-Diet, other books-in-progress reflect this author’s diverse creative, professional, and personal journey.  Married at age 56, still a freelance editor, and currently teaching writing at a small, urban college, Lynn McCann considers herself a late bloomer. There will be no unused portion to return to the manufacturer.

Q&A with The Anti-Diet Author Lynn Donovan McCann

Why did you rewrite The Anti-Diet?

This question posed by friends and strangers can be “bookended” by two articles from the New York Times.

The first one appeared Sunday, April 12, 1992, authored by Molly O’Neill, and was titled: “A Growing Movement Fights Diets Instead of Fat.” The story hailed a new “anti-diet” movement and featured Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol S. Munter as founders of a group called “Overcoming Overeating.” O’Neill focused on the failure of dieting,…
