ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
LaurieAnn Scher, MS, RD has a Bachelor of Science degree in Clinical Nutrition from Cornell University and a Master of Science degree in Applied Physiology and Nutrition from Columbia University Teachers College. As a registered dietitian for over 20 years, LaurieAnn has worked for leading institutions including Columbia University Health Services and The Renfrew Center and in private practice. This book came out of her desire to provide information and resources to people who need to restore or gain weight.
Melanie Katrinak, RD, CSP, LDN has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences from The Pennsylvania State University and completed her internship at The University of Connecticut. She has worked at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for 13 years counseling patients with a variety of medical conditions and nutritional needs. She became inspired to collaborate on this book as a result of increasing experience with patients struggling to maintain or gain weight during times of physical and/or psychological illness.
Debbie Kaufman, Parent: There is a huge population of both children and adults for whom calorie intake is critical. After going through a challenging experience of excessive weight loss with our child, Debbie became inspired to use the knowledge she learned along the way to produce a book to help guide others. Her dream was to create a complete resource for those who are struggling with maintaining or gaining weight. Included within this book are useful recipes, drink option varieties, tips for enhancing appetite and pertinent information on calories.
