As a personal trainer, Jonathan Bailor worked with clients who would achieve the results they wanted as long as they spent countless hours exercising and following restrictive diets. Frustrated by recommending a lifestyle that was not sustainable, he began the ten-year research odyssey that became The Calorie Myth. Bailor has registered more than twenty-five patents, serves as a senior program manager for Microsoft, and runs a wellness consulting business. He lives in Seattle, Washington with his wife.
