Sally Squires is a nationally known, award-winning medical and health writer for the Washington Post, where she also writes the nationally syndicated column, the Lean Plate Club, which has a circulation of more than six million readers weekly.

Each Tuesday, Squires hosts the popular Lean Plate Club online Web chat at www.washingtonpost.com, and writes a weekly, e-mail Lean Plate Club newsletter, which reaches over 250,000 subscribers. Participants in the Lean Plate Club come not just from inside the Beltway, but from coast to coast and throughout the world, from Australia to Spain.
She holds two masters degrees from Columbia University: one in journalism, the other in nutrition. Her articles have also appeared in numerous national publications including Woman's Day, Modern Maturity, Parade and Reader's Digest. Her most recent book -- "Secrets of the Lean Plate Club" (St. Martins Press, 2007) -- has just been published in paperback.
