Meet Alane & Sheila
Alane has kept her 40 lb weight loss off since 2013, and created BurgerFit and Cooking with My Friends as a way to get her family eating better. Her health journey started in 2012 after being diagnosed with high blood pressure and obesity. Frustrated and determined, Alane decided to make small, sustainable changes in her diet so that it would be maintainable for a lifetime. Now Alane maintains a healthy weight range and has incorporated quick and easy recipes that keep her picky family members eating better!
Originally from Lynchburg, TN (By the way, Sheila makes excellent lemonade…), Sheila lives in Cookeville with husband Tim and her fuzzy “kids.”
Sheila has always wanted a career in the spotlight. As a child, Sheila desperately wanted to be a professional whistler…but a series of unfortunate playground pranks involving sticking her tongue to a frozen flag pole brought those dreams to an end. Luckily, Sheila was encouraged by her Granny who said, “A whistling woman and a crowing hen always comes to a bad end.”
How We Met
I first met Sheila Scruggs at the 2019 Home Builders Association of the Upper Cumberland’s Home and Garden Show. I was part of the Cooking Stage demonstrations showing how to make the Beet BurgerFit burger with samples for the audience. Serina Wells, a good girlfriend of mine, brought samples to Sheila for her to try and Sheila loved them so much she came over to meet me and invite me to be on her morning show on Lite Rock 95.9! We’ve been friends ever since!
