Media Personality, Healthy Comfort Food Chef, Weight Loss Expert, and New York Times Bestselling Author, Devin Alexander, is the Host of "Healthy Decadence" on Fit TV. Devin's unique approach to healthy cooking and her motivational personal story have landed her appearances on more weight loss and fitness shows than any other food expert or nutritionist in America. Having maintained her 70-pound weight loss for over 16 years, she lives and eats her message: you don't have to deprive yourself to be fit and healthy.
Devin has shared her secrets for unbelievably decadent yet healthy foods through frequent appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Biggest Loser, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, The Doctors, The View, Celebrity Fit Club, Discovery Health's National Body Challenge, FOX, CNN, HGTV, USA, Style Network and others, and through over 300 magazine features including Prevention, Women's Health, Men's Health and Shape. She is currently Culinary Advisor to Men's Fitness Magazine and has served as Cooking Expert to Women's Health.
Devin is the author of seven current and forthcoming cookbooks. Her first cookbook, "Fast Food Fix" (Rodale, 2006) was featured as an editor's top pick in USA Today and her follow-up "The Biggest Loser Cookbook" (Rodale, 2006), a companion to the hit NBC show, spent months on The New York Times Bestsellers List as did her "The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook" (Rodale, November 2008 - she just released "The Biggest Loser Dessert Cookbook" on November 9, 2010 and is working on the next book in the "Biggest Loser Cookbook" series "Flavors of the World" due to hit shelves March 2011). Devin's "The Most Decadent Diet Ever!" (Broadway, 2008), revealed her secrets to living healthy without sacrificing the foods we all love and her most recent book, "I Can't Believe It's Not Fattening" (Broadway 2010), provides the answer for people who think they are too busy to cook. It sold out on QVC.
Devin travels the country lecturing and consulting for major U.S. food and cookware companies. She's on the Advisory Board of the American Culinary Federation's Chef Child Foundation, Larry King Foundation's Go-To-Chef to speak on "Obesity in America," and she recently returned from the White House as part of Michelle Obama's, Chefs Move To Schools Program. Later this year she plans to launch a charity initiative, "Kitchen Butterflies: Transforming Lives Through Cooking" in conjunction with Boys and Girls Club of America.
