Truths Publishing was founded by Allen Oelschlaeger following a 35 year career as a pharmacist,
medical industry executive and weight-loss researcher. He had become fed up with the confusing,
contradictory and inaccurate information available on losing weight, eating well and exercise and
decided to do something about it.

So, in 2004, with his prior education (B.S. in biology and pharmacy, MBA from the Wharton School)
and experience (retail and hospital pharmacist, Eli Lilly and Company executive, daughter with Type
1 diabetes) in tow, he spent 3 years digging deep into the scientific research on weight, nutrition, and fitness.

This research convinced Oelschlaeger of three things:

  1. The misinformation, misdirection and, in some cases, down right lies about weight, nutrition and
    fitness are more prevalent that he thought.
  2. The fundamental and unchanging truths about the physiology of weight management are well
    established in the scientific literature but they've been overshadowed by the vast propaganda of the
    profit-driven weight loss, food, and exercise industries.
  3. There was a massive need for truthful and unbiased information on the topics of weight, nutrition,
    and fitness.
It was these conclusions, along with a passion for helping his diabetic daughter, which led Oelschlaeger
to found Truths Publishing in 2006. Since then, the company has published Finally, the Straight Scoop
About Weight, Nutrition, and Fitnes
s by Allen Oelschlaeger, The Straight Scoop About Dieting by Sharon
Greene Patton and the Health and Fitness Truths Website.

Oelschlaeger also:

  • Writes two regularly-published emailed newsletters (The Straight Scoop About Health and Fitness
    Newsletter, The Straight About Health and Fitness Newsletter for Parents
    ) and contributes to several blogs.
  • Maintains an online Resource Center for customers that includes reports on such topics as self image,
    body acceptance, emotional eating, diabetes and childhood obesity.
  • Has created the B.I.T.E. Method for effortless weight management (see below under Interview Info)
  • Is on a mission to change U.S. public policy concerning the adult/child "obesity epidemic" (see reports
    below under Additional Information)
