Tacoma, WA, March 17, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Melissa Preston, inspired to a significant extent by what she found during the research process for her master’s thesis, and benefits she experienced by applying what she learned, led to her writing the book, “The Big Secret.” In a recent interview, Ms. Preston stated, “this is not a book about a 'diet' or an 'exercise' program, it is an education about how and why the body stores body fat." Preston states, “I wrote this book in an effort to reach the chronic dieter who has been unsuccessful in following traditional 'diet' and exercise plans. This is simply a 're-education' from a physiological point of view about how the body itself can most efficiently function, so that the readers can learn and use this information to reduce their body fat." She continued, “This is to reach those who are immensely affected because of excess body fat, and as a result, can’t do simple things like walk to the restroom, or simply walk around the store without chronic pain. This is who I am here to help.”
According to Preston, “this is a book to explain how the body functions, providing physiological research findings to re-educate people in terms of losing body fat, and as a result for them to become a bit healthier.” Her first edition of the book was published on September 4, 2015 and the second edition was published on March 1, 2016 on Amazon.
Melissa Preston states, “I was obese, sick and disabled; my excess body fat was a substantial contributing factor to the vast majority of my health problems.” Her topic for her master’s thesis was weight loss. She continued, “I only had access to most of this research information due to being in school, most people don’t have that access and even if they did (concerning physiology) a lot of the findings are written in medical terms and one would have to be educated in terms of the body’s structure and medical terminology to process the information and make reasonable deductions.”
She now grows food bearing “houseplants.” According to Ms. Preston, “I took a little time to learn how to grow some of my own foods, so instead of houseplants that just look nice, I have food bearing house plants. I use the seeds from organic food that I had obtained from a farmer’s stand and planted them.” In her book, she also discusses “forced exercise” and why many who do “forced exercise” do not get the most benefits. “People have been educated to 'force exercise' rather than do natural exercise.” There is a difference. Preston states, “the body is at its ideal state to engage in activity when motivated to do so.”
She had summarized that she knows that the majority of the population are not consuming nearly enough plant based and natural unprocessed foods (grains), and there are many who have been misinformed about exercise and how one’s body responds optimally. In the Second Edition of “The Big Secret” she discusses the fallacy behind people thinking that vegans and vegetarians lack B12. B12 is naturally derived from plant based sources. Adequate B12 definitely occurs as a result of plant based sources, that is covered in “The Big Secret”, Second Edition. Her books are available at www.thesecret1.com, on Amazon.com, Kindle.com and BarnesandNoble.com, in a paperback and Kindle edition.
Melissa Preston is educated in both the medical and psychology fields of practice. She obtained a Medical Assistant Certificate from Everest Technical College, a Certificate in Family Nutrition from the University of Washington, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services Management from the University of Phoenix.

Lisa Pellegrene is a journalist/actress/producer/director and consultant based in the Los Angeles Area who has had her practice for 15 years. She is a long time social justice, and animal advocate and is vegan. Pellegrene stands firm and always will in her stance as an ethical vegan, in diet and life, as she believes in consuming plant based foods is the healthiest way in more ways than one, and that all sentient beings, that most definitely includes animals as they are sentient of course, have a right and will to live and be treated with respect, love and compassion. Pellegrene prompted Preston’s search for the B12 clarification, in the Second Edition which clarifies that B12 can clearly be obtained from plant based sources, and the B12 deficiency in vegans and vegetarians, is a fallacy. B12 can be sufficiently obtained from plant based sources, such as nori (seaweed) and other B12 fortified plant based foods.
