With his trademark Rock 'N Roll hair and snakeskin spandex pants, Lüc Carl fit the part as a bar manager based in NYC's gritty Lower East Side. And life was good for this Omaha transplant--a talented drummer who originally moved to the big city to pursue his dreams—until, suddenly, it wasn't. Fast forward through seven years of working long hours, binging on Chinese food, and drinking excessively; Lüc was forty pounds overweight and completely out of shape. But when he turned to the "experts" for advice--reading countless fitness and weight-loss books in the process--he realized that "if you read one you've read them all." Lüc decided to take matters into his own hands to transform his body and his life his way.
Full of charismatic wit and raucous stories about his life, The Drunk Diet will inspire and challenge you to become fitter, healthier, and happier. Lüc's fitness philosophy isn't about following a list of rigid rules or traditional "do this, not that" charts, but gaining a better understanding of how the body works and discovering what you're willing to change about your lifestyle in order to reach your goals. For him, that meant trading in the crap he was eating for unprocessed foods and embracing exercise, but never sacrificing his social life (or his love for cold beer). This self-proclaimed "out-of-shape, bloated asshole" will be the first to tell you: If he could do it, so can you.
