How this site got it’s name

Love it or hate it, you’re probably having a reaction to the name of this site: Eat. Drink & be Skinny. Let me explain…hint: Skinny is not meant to imply unhealthy, in fact, it’s quite the opposite.

    I’m Stephanie Harper and I’m promoting a website about drug and alcohol treatment. I have been searching the Internet for sites we think would be just right for our campaign, and your site has caught our attention. Having said that, I’d like to inquire if you’re open to the idea of a text link placement on this page:

    Please let me know your thoughts on how this could work for you, or if you already have rates in mind. Our budget for this campaign may not be that much, but we’ll do our best to reach an agreement with you that would be fair and appropriate for the both of us.

    Thanks for your time.

      Hi Michael – I’m so glad you found the challenge! It’s not that I target women with my efforts, it’s just that I am one, so that’s who it’s easiest for me to relate too 🙂 But everything here is 100% applicable to the male species as well and you should get GREAT results from the challenge along with the ladies 🙂 You might even find you like of of my recipes and other happy life tips too — I’m so glad you are here! Cheers!


I would love to hear from you...
