Lisa Lillien
Hungry Girl founder, healthy eating expert, TV host, New York Times bestselling author


Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. Hungry Girl) is a New York Times best-selling author and the creator of the Hungry Girl brand. She is the founder of www.hungry-girl.com, the free daily email service that entertains and informs hungry people everywhere. Lisa is a typical woman battling the same food issues most females 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 of it she can eat and still fit into her pants.

 

More than 1,000,000 fans eagerly wait for 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! In addition to the million-plus die-hard subscribers to her daily emails, Lisa also reaches millions more with weekly columns on WeightWatchers.com and People.com, regular contributions to Redbook magazine, and recurring appearances on television shows like The Dr. Oz Show and The View.

 

Lisa is the author of ten best-selling books — six of which debuted at number one on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Her most recent book, The Hungry Girl Diet Cookbook: Healthy Recipes for Mix-n-Match Meals & Snacks, debuted on the list in May 2015.

 

Her television show, Hungry Girl, airs on both Food Network and Cooking Channel. A self-proclaimed “mad scientist” in the kitchen, Lisa dishes out guilt-free recipes (easy and delicious ones!), tips & tricks, supermarket finds, and survival guides for real-world eating situations.

 

With an ability to integrate audience participation, Lisa’s events are always informative, humorous, and fun.
