The Viral Video Messages
The First Case and the Message in "A Postcard from Yellowstone"
"Life can change completely in one year," Amanda Rose asserts in the video A Postcard from Yellowstone. The strong "You Can Do It!" message, viewed by nearly one million people, captured the hearts of thousands of older women, shaping the culture of support in the Eat Like a Bear! community.
Fifty Century Cases: The Power of Community in Weight Loss
Eat Like a Bear! has exploded into a community of over 60,000 people losing life-changing amounts of weight. The community has 50 century cases (people who have lost over 100 pounds), five "half my size" cases, and tens of thousands of pounds lost. Listen to their words in this video, viewed over three million times on Facebook.
The Big Weight Loss Platforms Don't Dare Set Goals This High!
"Make your goal big! Make it visual and completely physical. If it doesn't scare you (at least just a bit), it's not big enough!" urges Amanda Rose in the video at left, identifying a key factor that differentiates the Eat Like a Bear! community from all the rest.
The "RBS Book": Half My Size with The Ridiculously Big Salad
"This book was a game-changer for our community's success. I ate what we now call 'The Ridiculously Big Salad' about four out of five days during my rapid weight loss phase, but I didn't appreciate that it was a key success factor for me until I saw thousands of people implement it with great results. It's simple and inexpensive, but it is a specific framework, not 'just a salad.'"
Thousands of digital sales of the book in 2019 funded the current print version. Read more here about the print book.
The Hallmark of Eat Like a Bear!: It is shockingly cheap!
Eat big, lose weight, and save money at the same time!
A hallmark of Eat Like a Bear! is its no-nonsense, budget-friendly approach to weight loss. We have community members doing it on food stamps. There are no monthly fees here at Eat Like a Bear!, although there are books and courses you can buy, if you wish. (I thank you for that.)
Born out of one of California's most impoverished and most obese counties
Eat Like a Bear! was founded in Tulare County, one of California's most obese, diabetic, and impoverished counties. We aim to turn around the obesity and diabetes statistics, one friend at a time. Amanda Rose lives in eastern Tulare County, in California's Giant Sequoia National Monument.
The weight loss marketers all those years – they were wrong!
You know all the people who have been trying to convince us that the solution to our weight loss lies in their products? It never did, and it never will. In fact, that ubiqitous marketing message is a big part of the high rate of obesity in the United States. The people who are success cases in Eat Like a Bear! learn a core message: The locus of control of weight loss is ourselves.

Digital Course Modules
We currently have four course modules at Eat Like a Bear! which fund this whole platform and community. (Thank you!) We have members succeeding without buying these, but we have a far higher success rate among buyers. These materials are based on Amanda Rose's analysis of the thousands of cases in the Eat Like a Bear! community.
