Australian makeup artist Bernadette Fisers on how she conquered obesity

Izzy Yates at Penguin Random House Australia has signed The Little Book of Big Weightloss by hair and makeup artist Bernadette Fisers, with Brenda Kimber publishing at Transworld UK. The agent is Zoe King at the Blair Partnership.

Fisers hit a crisis when she was labelled morbidly obese, with a fatty liver, high blood pressure and pre-diabetes. The book, out in the UK in July, is an account of how she restored her health, offering a set of 31 food and lifestyle rules.

Kimber said: "We are absolutely delighted to be publishing The Little Book of Big Weightloss, a dynamic, inspiring guide which will appeal to anyone who has tried and failed to lose weight long term. We are confident that readers will be able to look forward to a happier, healthier future using all the great advice, tips and strategies in the book, while being supported and encouraged by Bern’s passion and her no-nonsense approach to achieving goals."
