Sarah Palin served lunch at a rally for republican senatorial candidate Kirk Adams in August.

Former Alaska governor and republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told she is writing a fitness book.

Photos of Palin, 48, looking very thin have caused a stir online, reports People. But Palin insists she is just fine, telling People in an email, "Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!"

Would you take fitness advice from Sarah Palin?
