Hungry Girl is not a nutritionist. She's just hungry. 

Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. Hungry Girl) is a New York Times bestselling author and the creator of the Hungry Girl brand. She is the founder of www.hungry-girl.com, the free daily email service that entertains and informs hungry people everywhere. Lisa is a typical woman battling the same food issues most females struggle with every day. She considers herself a “foodologist,” not because she has some kind of fancy degree, but because she is obsessed with food –– how wonderful it is, and how much of it she can eat and still fit into her pants. 


Nearly 3 million email subscribers and social media followers eagerly await Hungry Girl’s recipes, food finds, and tips & tricks each weekday. Lisa also reaches millions more with a weekly column on People.com, Hungry Girl magazine, and recurring appearances on television shows like Good Morning AmericaThe View, and The Dr. Oz Show. What started as a daily email to friends and family has turned into a nationwide, multimedia phenomenon! 

Lisa is the author of twelve bestselling cookbooks, six of which debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Her twelfth book, Hungry Girl Clean & Hungry OBSESSED!, was released in September of 2017 and became an instant #1 Amazon Best Seller. She has also starred in a top-rated cooking show on both Food Network and Cooking Channel.

A self-proclaimed "mad scientist" in the kitchen, Lisa dishes out guilt-free recipes (easy and delicious ones!), tips & tricks, supermarket finds, and survival guides for real-world eating situations.
