Size Matters by Sally G Cronin


Today’s featured author is without a doubt the most humble person I have ever met, given all that she has accomplished, and prefers to promote and support the work of others over her own. She has been, and is, involved with radio, television, and publishing as well as being a very well respected author. The book I’ve chosen to feature today is Size Matters, but please do have a look at more in her own words here, whether you need help with publishing or would simply like to connect with this most talented and approachable lady.


Sally Georgina Cronin’s passions run very deep. Particularly in relation to healthy eating and the amazing way the body converts lovely fresh produce into fuel and protective chemicals that keep us fit and alive.

Having weighed 330 lbs (150 kilos) at age 42 and been told that getting to 45 was a bit of a stretch, she was highly motivated to make a difference. This she did, by studying nutrition and the human body, so that she could sort out her own issues and help others to also get motivated.

That was eighteen years ago: and in that time Sally has been communicating her particular brand of no-nonsense approach to health and diet in books, columns, articles and through her popular radio shows. She has worked with clients at her diet advisory centre in Ireland and also at a number of clinics in the UK. She not only worked with those needing to achieve a healthier weight but those already suffering from lifestyle related diseases. On the plus side she also worked with couples who were very motivated to develop a healthier lifestyle so they could conceive.

Sally’s first book Size Matters was a record of her personal journey as she lost the original 11 stone and the programme that she developed for herself and her clients to achieve a healthier lifestyle. That book has also been converted to an e-book to be shared with a new generation of readers. The story does not change – being obese is no fun at all!

This was followed by Just Food for Health, a comprehensive guide to family nutrition and health.

All of her books are available on Amazon and also through the publisher Moyhill ( And all of the books below are available in EPUB and Kindle formats

Forget the Viagra – Pass me a Carrot! : A men’s health workshop manual.

Sam, A Shaggy Dog Story : A tribute to a beloved friend.

Size Matters : A journey from obesity to health.

Just an Odd Job Girl : A novel about a new start in life.

Media Training: The Manual : A concise instruction manual on how to work
with “the Media”.

Two new books became available in July 2014

Turning Back the Clock : Anti-ageing. How to feel and look 10 years younger

Flights of Fancy : Eleven new short stories from Sally Cronin

Sally’s daily health and writing blog makes sure that she keeps motivated and delivering her message.

“ Everybody needs to take more responsibility for their health and lifestyle – making changes at any age can make a difference, not just to lifespan but even more importantly physical and mental quality of life”.

You can follow Sally Cronin on Twitter, Facebook and LinkdIn, as well as on her daily blog at WordPress – Smorgasbord.

Have a look at the press clippings below. I was so impressed!

What the Papers Said

I’m halfway through reading Size Matters, and I can tell you that regardless of what you weigh now, this book is packed full of all the information that you need to inspire you to live a healthy and longer life. It’s already got five stars from me and I’m not quite finished reading it yet. It has a fascinating section on gut health and the effects of Candida Albicans on weight gain and illness as well as the solutions to these problems. If you want to lose weight, or simply begin to live a healthier life Size Matters has you covered from how to deal with those around you, to exercise, as well as precise charts and plans. Sally Cronin know exactly what she’s talking about, and her empathy and understanding together with her vast knowledge on all of these subjects will inspire anyone to begin the journey to weight loss, health, and fitness.

Last but not least – check out this great book for men’s health, and a brilliant way to look after the men in your life with food and nutrition.

      We all are Chris, and she really expects nothing at all from anyone. Can’t have her hiding her amazing light under a bushel. These books are all brilliant. 🙂

    I am very grateful to Jo Robinson for featuring me on Feed My Reads South Africa – I made a commitment to myself many years ago that I would turn a very negative time in my life to something positive. I was fat for a reason as one of my clients, a young father, said to me after losing his own 11 stone. “If you had not been fat and turned your life around, I would not be here today to see my children grow up” Thank you Jo for helping me get a message out there. ♥

    Great article and you are so right…you are what you eat. Congratulations on losing all that weight, Sally, and on your writing success. I’m guilty of living rather unhealthily as I lurch daily from fulltime teaching to domestic chores then to cramming in my writing. I know that I need to take better care of myself but sometimes it’s hard, especially as a mum, because everyone else comes first. Hopefully, when I can cut my hours at work, I’ll have more time to look after myself. Have a great weekend! 🙂

      Thanks Molly! We do tend to put ourselves last, and things are always popping up too. I tend to be a bit of a vulture most of the time. Have a wonderful week! 🙂
