Nearing the three- hundred-pound mark, she was eating under 1,000 calories per day of frozen “diet” meals and still gaining weight. After trying every major diet out there (and some scary ones too!), Audrey was left with no lasting results and more broke than ever. That’s when she decided to go back to the basics. She taught herself how to cook and transformed her favorite foods into skinny versions. After only a year of eating her new skinny recipes, she went from a size 24 to a size 4, losing over 150 pounds in 11 months.   Arjun Rastogi - Winner of the It's Up to Us Debt Awareness Competition   [caption id="attachment_17727" align="alignright" width="210"] Arjun Rastagi[/caption] The debate over how to handle the national debt has come back into the spotlight.
