When Bill Baroni was just twenty years old, he was convinced he was dying. He thought he was having a heart attack because it felt like he had an elephant sitting on his chest. It turned out to be only indigestion, but more than that, it was the wake up call he needed to save his life. Bill weighed 320 pounds and was hooked on junk food. He set about to change his life forever, and now, in Fat Kid Gets Fit, he tells you everything you need to know to lose weight and more importantly, keep it off for the rest of your life. No, he's not a doctor. Not a trainer. Not a salesman hawking gym equipment, vitamin supplements, or workout videos. He did not have gastric bypass surgery and he didn't subscribe to the slimming grapefruit enema regimes used by Hollywood stars. He lost his weight using common sense. It took dedication, and even some gumption. But it worked! He lost 120 pounds and, more importantly, he has kept it off! He has maintained a healthy 185 pounds for fifteen years. At 6'5", he is trim, handsome, and healthy. Bill is a man on a missionto help get everyone fit, no matter what their story is.

Read an Excerpt
"When I was heavy, it seemed like the world was chock full of thin people telling me I should lose weight. Work harder, they said. Run faster. Eat less. Think this. Do that. Try so-and-so's product. . .Well, I'm not going to talk to you like a thin person telling you you're fat. Thin people can't understand what we go through. They don't really speak the same language. I'm going to talk to you like a person who found a way to get thin. Because that's what I am and that's what I did. And so can you. I've lived through my obesity nightmare. I found a way out. And so can you.""A few years ago, I remembered how a wise man once said: when you can't find the story you want to read, sit down and write it yourself. And that's why I wrote this book. That's the purpose of FAT KID GOT FIT. Because I think I know what you're feeling right now. You're frustrated. You want to change but you feel like the deck is stacked against you. And, like I was many years ago, you're probably operating under some colossal misconceptions . . . This is the book I wish that I had when I was fat and just starting out on my journey."
