Walter Scott Allen, general manager of the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, in Los Angeles, has penned a new guide for achieving better health, taken from his personal journey toward a healthier lifestyle. “I Can See My Shoes Again: A Humorous Yet Sarcastic Journey to Better Health” profiles Allen’s own daily battles so readers can understand through firsthand experience how to get cholesterol, blood pressure and weight under control.
The situations featured in the self-help book outline challenges that everyone faces — particularly those in the hospitality industry — when changing health habits. Allen encourages separate, smaller steps to ease the lifestyle transition. The personal focus of the book also reveals how his wife’s breast cancer diagnoses inspired his own journey to better health.
“While taking care of my wife during her fight with breast cancer, I realized I had to get serious about my health. I had to choose a retirement of great health or one in diapers. Guess what I chose?” said Allen.
