Summary

Three years ago, Luc Carl was a chubby, rock 'n roller with a penchant for partying and Chinese food. With long hair, snakeskin spandex pants, and black leather, Luc fit the part as bar manager at hip lower east side bars, but the job was getting the best of him-the long, late hours and the barfly life had made him fortypounds overweight and completely out of shape-and he grew increasingly unhappy with his body and himself. Taking inspiration from such heroes as David Lee Roth and Rocky, he decided to do something about it. But after reading countless fitness books and being told time and again that it's impossible to lose weight while drinking alcohol he decided to take matters into his own hands. (He could give up the cheeseburgers, the cigarettes, the soda, but don't take away his booze!) This book is that journey-a journey in which he went from being an out of shape, bloated asshole, to losing 40 pounds, picking up running, and becoming "the sexiest, most delightful man on the planet."Full of charismatic wit and insane stories about his life, Luc's book is a mix of memoir and advice: laugh and be inspired while he takes you along on his ride to become healthier and fitter, and live vicariously through a guy who likes to have a good time, ALL the time (even if that now means running 8 miles a day). Along the way, you'll find out much more about Luc than just how he lost all that weight: you will read about his charming Midwest roots in Nebraska, where his love of music was discovered at the age of nine in his dad's truck; his high school days where he honed his skills as a kickass drummer in the school band; and his move to NYC to pursue his rockstar dreams, sleeping on friends' couches and working all night at the local taco shop. Peppered throughout will be hilarious sidebars, such as his "What the F*ck" sections that will define terms such as electrolytes and omega3 fatty acids, and Luc's Laws "If you've made the decision to drink beer, drink a f*cking beer. Light beer is for pussies."
