Whether you need to lose 150 pounds or five pounds, Scott's hilarious memoir will not only make you laugh but it will also equip you for your own journey to a happier and healthier you.
About The Author:
Scott is a comedian, singer and entertainer. He received Christ at the age of sixteen on July 10, 1979. He graduated from Liberty University where he attended on a full scholarship for traveling with the Light Singers. While working toward his degree in cross-cultural studies, Scott traveled across the U.S. and to ten foreign countries.
Scott's ministry has continued in the U.S. and abroad since his graduation in 1984. He has appeared on Mark Lowry's videos and has written comedy for Mark while under contract with Word Records. For a year, Scott appeared weekly on the national television show, "The Mark & Kathy Show," with Mark Lowry and Kathy Troccoli. Along with his weekly appearances, he has been a guest on numerous religious and secular radio and television broadcasts, including an appearance with comedian Dennis Swanberg on Swan's Place.
Today, Scott conducts GET REAL national conferences with the nation's top speakers and musicians. He also presents music and comedy concert events.
This is a great book at what motivated Scott Davis to lose the weight and gives the reader insight into why Scott allowed himself to gain so much weight in the first place. I was expecting an insider's look into how he did it but it's more of a retrospective into why he began eating, how he felt during his binges and what he took away from the process in losing all the weight. In the end, Scott lost the weight through Quick Loss Weight Centers of Atlanta, which promises that you can lose between 3-5 pounds per week and still eat real food.
However, if the reader is looking for what the program looks like, you'll have to consult the Quick Loss Weight Centers of Atlanta. I was disappointed from that perspective but if you are looking into what lessons he learned along his journey with a comic flair and a whole lot of laughs then this is perfect for you.
I received this book in a eBook format compliments of Media Guests for my honest review and I would rate this a 3 out of 5 stars just for the fact it's a bit misleading on what you are hoping to get out of it and what you really do based on my comments above. If you're looking for another diet book, then this is not it. It's a personal memoir of one man's journey through weight loss.
