"ALL THE FAT IS THE LORD'S . . ." —Leviticus 3:16
Radio personalities Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey love their grub, and they love it well—and now they want to tell you everything they know about it!
In this bountiful buffet of all-things-vittles, Rick and Bubba of the syndicated Rick & Bubba Show—heard nationally on more than 60 radio stations—will offer you a veritable smorgasbord of tantalizing tidbits to help you get the most out of America's favorite pastime—eating!
Features of Rick and Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub include:
"Eating is an art . . . an event . . . an experience," say Rick and Bubba. So grab your forks, y'all, and come on. There's eatin' to do! Let Rick and Bubba show you how!
Diet. Now, that's a word you hear every livelong day, somewhere in our carb-conscious society. Seems like every time I (Bubba) turn around, so-and-so's on a diet, or "Hey, man, what diet are you on?" or "Gee, she looks great. She must be dieting." If you ask us, there's a reason that the first three letters of the word diet are d-i-e, but hey, if YOU want to fuss with calories, points, or fat grams, we're with you.
Now, having offered you our support, if you want-or need-to go on a diet, there are a lot of different choices available to you today. You can do Atkins-if you're into that. Personally, we like our starch. God made it, and that's good enough for us. Or you could try Weight Watchers-if you dig counting all those little points for every sumptuous bite you put in your mouth ... but Rick and I tend to cheat. (Individual chocolate chips don't really have points, do they? They're so small ...) There's even the illustrious "Deal-a-Meal." (Ever notice how those old commercials make those ladies look like they're playing a fun game of cards? Hmph. I don't think so ...) South Beach, North Beach, Sugar Busters, Weigh Down, count your calories, watch your zones, watch your this and watch your that-oh, the choices are endless. There's even a caveman diet. Hey, I could get into that! Anybody remember the size of that rack o' ribs Fred Flintstone was served in the closing credits of The Flintstones? Pass me the sauce!
But we are going to give you one more choice, the quintessential diet. Introducing ... (drum roll, please) the Rick and Bubba "Hey, You Gotta Live" diet. This is a diet plan that is based in reality, and it is what has kept us in GQ shape all these years.
The truth is, almost any diet will help you lose weight to some extent. That's because most diets are based on the simple principle that eating fewer calories than what you've been eating in the past will cause anyone to lose weight. It just makes mathematical sense.
But very few diets are set up for you to actually live while following them. Losing weight is fine, but if it's only to help you fit into your funeral clothes, what good is that? We contend that life is meant to be lived, and who can live without, say, carbs? (Hey, doctors tell us carbs have that "feel-good" thing going on for your brain. Who are we to argue?) A "diet" without mashed potatoes and French toast and Sister Schubert's yeast rolls and bottomless pasta bowls-we can't do it. And meat? Essential. Jesus ate meat. Who are we to tell him he's wrong? No sirree. We aren't about to go vegan.
No, with the Rick and Bubba "Hey, You Gotta Live" diet plan, we don't discriminate against any particular type of food. In fact, with our diet, you can eat whatever you want.
Sugar? You got it!
White bread? Absolutely!
Animal fat? Here you go!
Red meat? Belly up to the carving table!
We're not so arrogant and narrow-minded as to leave out the very foods that everyone enjoys. That's not fair. Why should we punish butter? What did it do? Tasting good isn't a crime. At least the last time we checked it wasn't.
We're not going to single out desserts as the bad guy either. They're just trying to keep themselves in demand like everyone else-a little job security. Is that so bad?
Our philosophy is that we will continue to support all food. We say, eat everything ... only do it in moderation. You can still go to buffets; just don't clean them out. And if you do, don't start licking the serving carts.
* * *
The Rick and Bubba "Hey, You Gotta Live" diet works on the truth principle. The truth is that people like us aren't fat because we're hungry. We're fat because we like how food tastes! That is a fact. We've faced it-now nutritionists need to face this truth too. They need to step back into reality. We love to eat. It's part of who we are.
I (Rick) don't order a hot fudge sundae because I'm starving. Nor do I order a second slice of cheesecake because I'm feeling weak and faint. If I were feeling weak and faint, I'd order a triple-meat burger or a sixteen-ounce steak or something a lot more filling and rich in iron. I order desserts because they don't care about iron. I order them because they taste good. I want that chocolate shake because I like the flavor of it, not because my stomach's growling for it. (I haven't heard my stomach growl in fourteen years. I do my best to keep it full at all times. As its primary caregiver, I consider it my duty.)
So we say, why pretend that you don't want to eat? Of course you want to eat. You want more than the 1,800; 1,500; or 800 calories those other plans are limiting you to. Accept that truth. The goal of our diet isn't to get you to be skinny. Our goal is to get you to a level of fat that you can tolerate.
Having said all that, there are some folks out there-unlike Bubba and me-who really do eat because they're hungry-and only then. Our hats off to you. We'd like you better if you ate for fun, but hey, there's room for everybody on the Rick and Bubba "Hey, You Gotta Live" diet. For good, conscientious folks like you, there's only going to be one way for you to lose weight: stop eating when you're hungry, and instead, only eat when you're famished.
Now, many people confuse the terms hungry and famished, but there is a world of difference. Let Uncles Rick and Bubba help you.
First, hungry is a mild inconvenience. You may have heard your stomach growl. The aroma coming from your kitchen may be making it difficult for you to concentrate on your favorite show. You may have even gotten a little faint. But this is not famished. It is hungry.
The way we look at it is this-famished is when you're hungry and nothing was done about it. This is far worse than being merely hungry. When you're famished, the waiter doesn't even have to ask if you want the pie, because you've already gone ahead and ordered it before you even ordered your meal.
Hungry means it's 11:30, and I'm a little spindly and lightheaded because it's almost lunchtime. Famished means it's 11:35, and it's time to get the IV going.
Hungry means I can be satisfied with one combo meal. Famished means I've moved beyond the hungry stage and am now combining combo meals. It means I'm coming off the menu board and I'm starting to make up my own combination numbers. "I'll have three cheeseburgers, curly fries, and six tacos. Let's call that a #27." Or I'll order one of the regular combo meals, and then start adding to it. "I'll take a #4, plus two cheeseburgers and a side of beef."
Hungry means I'm popping a frozen pizza into the oven. Famished means I'm eating it frozen ... along with the box!
Hungry means my stomach is growling. Famished means I am.
Hungry means I've eaten all the chips and salsa and am now ready for my meal (but don't take away the chip bowl! Just keep fillin' 'er up, if you please ...). Famished means I've eaten the centerpiece and half of the tablecloth, and I'm now in the kitchen, helping them cook.
Hungry means if the meat is not to my liking, I'll send it back to the chef. Famished means if the meat is still moving, I'm tackling it to the ground before it can get away.
So you see, for those of you-unlike Bubba and me-who don't eat because it's more fun than walking on a treadmill, more satisfying than a day at the zoo, and more a part of you than your own hair follicles, your success lies in your ability to distinguish between "Gee-that-smells-tasty-and-I-haven't-eaten-since-breakfast"-hungry-and "Unhand-that-pork-chop-or-I'll-fight-you-for-it"-FAMISHED.
Rick and Bubba's Weight Loss Tips
Tip #1: Before weighing yourself, always put the turkey down first.
Tip #2: Never put both feet on the scale.
Tip #3: Before weighing yourself, remove shoes, jewelry, and any dental fillings that may be adding to your weight.
Tip #4: Better yet, when the nurse isn't looking, "accidentally" fall against the scale, sliding the metal gauge down about ten pounds.
Tip #5: Buy bigger belts.
Tip #6: Only put three scoops of bacon bits on your salad.
Tip #7: Drop all your skinny friends. Only hang around people who are larger than you.
Tip #8: Jog, instead of walking, to your refrigerator.
Tip #9: All 31 flavors will not fit on a single ice cream cone. You have to choose. Deal with it.
Tip #10: Limit your intake of white flour. Wait until it's in a loaf of bread. It tastes better.
Rick and Bubba's "Get Out of Jail Free" Card
They say that, often, prisoners who finally get out of jail end up right back in the slammer-for the very same thing they got arrested for in the first place, or worse (at least that's what they say ...). Well, it's our contention that most dieters are just like that.
Isn't it true that most other diet plans make you feel like you've been taken prisoner? And as a prisoner, sooner or later you're going to want to break out of your confinement of limited calories and make a run for it ... to the nearest Krispy Kreme. So we ask you, what good was all that dieting you suffered through when you gain all that lost weight right back-and a couple or ten pounds more-before you're twenty feet beyond the drive-thru window?
It all seems like a waste to us. Who wants to step on a scale after a maple bar binge and see the same, pre-diet number that was there before the diet even began? It's defeating.
Was it worth passing on that wedding cake two weeks ago?
Was it worth waving off that banana pudding?
Was it worth sending the dessert cart on its way?
Of course it wasn't. If you're going to commit the same lip-lickin' crime as before and gain all your weight back, why bother going through all that dieting anguish in the first place? Get out of jail free, and enjoy the autonomy of the Rick and Bubba "Hey, You Gotta Live" diet plan.
* * *
Another point we'd like to make about our diet plan is that we refuse to let you eat any strange versions of regular food. This includes fat-free chips of any kind. Chips were never intended to be fat free. They're deep-fried ... in FAT. That's what makes them chips. Why pretend that you're eating something healthy when you've got a bag of Lay's in your hand? Oh, you can rationalize the part about it being a potato and having vitamins and all, but it's still a potato chip. Potato chips aren't a diet food. Quit pretending you can make them into a diet food.
Besides, have you read the side effects of fat-free chips? Read about them the next time you've got a bag of fat-free chips in your hand. Not one of those side effects is pretty. If you're going to diet, then just eat less food. Don't start messing around with "diet" versions of regular food that were never meant to be fat free.
Fat-free cheesecake? Fat-free ice cream? Fat-free butter? Fat-free fat? Haven't we carried this practical joke on long enough? To quote one of our favorite thin bodies, "Stop the insanity!"
Besides, the fat-free marketers mess with your head anyway. Ever notice how labels on canned vegetables will sometimes brag about being "A Fat-Free Food"? Well, of course they're fat free. They're green beans-without butter. Or lard. Or those little fried-onion things that MeMaw puts on her green bean casserole. So you can't trust fat-free marketing. So why bother? Nutshell version? Steer clear of fat-free foods.
We also suggest that you stay away from diet drinks. It is our opinion that diet sodas are far worse for you than regular sodas. Artificial sweeteners are fine if you need them for health reasons; but if you don't, why would you risk putting chemicals you can't even pronounce in your body? The FDA may say they're perfectly fine, but we wonder about the safety of any chemical that can make your insides produce noises of a decibel level that NASA hasn't even heard yet.
Better yet, maybe we should all be drinking more water. And not pricey bottled water either. In this economy, do you have any idea how much money you could save by going back to drinking water out of the faucet? Remember that kind of water? It's still there. It may not have tiny little bubbles in it, but it's wet and costs a lot less. Besides, do you really believe that fancy-pants bottled stuff comes from "a sparkling Alpine stream"? Heck no, baby. It really comes from the murky waters of Swamp Holler-but who's gonna tell you that?
* * *
Aside from the freedom of eating what you want, when you want, another reason we feel the Rick and Bubba "Hey, You Gotta Live" diet plan has been so successful is the accompanying Rick and Bubba products, such as the Rick and Bubba governor for forks. This device works like any other governor device, only you attach it to your fork. The governor then sounds an alarm whenever your fork is exceeding the lift limit. Ignore it and severe penalties will apply, such as having all your fork privileges revoked. You won't be allowed to get behind the prongs of a fork until you have sought rehabilitation.
But the real secret behind the success of our diet plan has little to do with any of the above reasons. It is this: the return of the 8-inch plate. The average plate today will run about 12 inches. That size plate holds far too much food. We suggest returning to 8-inch plates, like our forefathers used, but then piling them as high as you can. Because of the size difference, and the clearance limit of most restaurants, you would naturally be eating less, yet it would look like so much more.
Make one small change like this and you could be well on your way to the weight of your dreams.
We also advocate a free day. You can call it a Day of Decadence, Day of Liberty, Day of Blowing Your Diet to Smithereens-whatever you want. This is the day when you can eat as much as you want without any guilt whatsoever, but only on this one day. We feel that by providing this kind of freedom to our dieters, by allowing them to let loose on this one day each week, they will find it easier to keep to their diet on the other six days. We've tested this out ourselves, and it really does seem to have a positive effect on a dieter's mental state.
That's right, by having two freedom days per week, we are more likely to maintain our diet regimen for the other five days. Let's face it, diets are hard to maintain, but we have found that by allowing ourselves these three freedom days each week, we are able to pass on unhealthy snacks and desserts the other four days of the week. Four freedom days aren't really that many when you get right down to it.
Imagine it-five days in which you can eat anything you like, and only two during which you have to watch your caloric intake. That sounds reasonable, doesn't it? Six free days, and only one diet day. Tell us a diet plan that is easier than that. Seven free days, and zero diet days.
That's the Rick and Bubba diet. Sign up today!

Rick and I (Bubba) are reminded of the inspiring Bible story of Jesus, after he'd been away from his disciples for a while, and he asks them, "Do you have any meat?" (Trust us: it's in there.) Notice he didn't say, "Do you have any rice cakes?" or "Do you have any fat-free alfalfa sprouts?" No sir. The Man wanted meat. Now, at the risk of repeating ourselves, Rick and I would just like to say, in all humility and deference-
-that if it's good enough for our Lord, it's good enough for us. We're contentedly carnivorous. But we've already talked about Jesus being a meat-eater and all, so far be it from us to belabor the point. What's important now is that you understand that meat is your friend. The cavemen ate it. Hey, they didn't discover fire for nothing! What do you think they did that for? Well, we can tell you. Ol' Neanderthal (or whoever he was) came up with the idea of fire for ...

If you are looking for a real cookbook, then don't stop here and keep on looking! When I found out I would be receiving this book from the Thomas Nelson book program, BookSneeze for bloggers, I was very excited. I collect cookbooks and any book with Pizzas, Onion Rings, and Fried Chicken on the front are right up my alley I thought. Well, out of 214 pages, there are only about 23 recipes all together. This book is more of a humorous way to look at eating and why Americans LOVE to eat. You will learn such things as "Diet starts with D-I-E for a reason", you will learn weight loss tips such as "Jog, instead of walk, to your refrigerator". The "Two Sexiest Fat Men Alive" will also provide you with a listing of all their all-time favorite places to eat, which even includes the best place on this side of the pearly gates to eat - the ultimate "Church Potluck"!
Perhaps if you are looking for a humorous book for a foodie in your life, or perhaps someone that has always dieted and just really wants to "Live" their life around the food they love, then this might be a good gift book for those individuals. On the other hand, if you are simply looking for a cookbook, you can just skip right over this one and move on to Betty Crocker or Martha Stewart!

I received a copy of this book for free from the booksneeze program. Before I received this book, I was expecting it to be a cookbook. It does include some recipes but it's more of a humorous book about food. The men who wrote this book boldly share their opinions about food and eating while turning a blind eye to the current focus on health food and calorie reduction.
This book is a funny, easy to read tribute to the foods and traditions we grew up on. I would suggest not reading this book if you are currently trying to lose weight or stick to any sort of diet. Reading the chapters and recipes brought on cravings for high-fat comfort food. When you combine those cravings with the all-you-can-eat attitude of the authors, it is almost impossible to resist that ice cream you know is lingering in the back of the freezer. Just looking at the cover of this book makes me hungry!

I really enjoyed the humor in this cookbook and some of the recipes. However, this really isn't a cookbook it seems. It didn't have as many recipes as I expected a cookbook to have but I guess that is to be expected because it's not your usual cookbook. This cookbook has more of their opinions, ideas and stories rather than just all of their favorite recipes. The recipes are arranged in a different order and spread throughout the cookbook.
The recipes that are shared sound really good and I think I am going to try some of them this summer. However, I was a little disappointed that there aren't very many healthy types of recipes included for those of us who want to try to eat a little better or healthier. Overall I'm not sure I would really recommend this book, I would only recommend it to certain people who I think might like it.
I would like to thank Booksneeze.com which gave me this book for free to review. I am not required to post a positive review; my reviews are my genuine opinion. If you would like to review books for Booksneeze go to booksneeze.com to register to become a book review blogger.

So I read this book "Rick and Bubba's Big Honkin' book of GRUB" written by Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey. Yea... Well I can say that there was never a more true book out there. They are not into dieting. As they say in the book "there's a reason the first three letters of the word diet are d-i-e." Isn't that the truth?! I LOVE this book there is nothing more down home than "Spam 'n' Taters". I love the "Top Tens", especially the "Top Ten Reasons Why There Will Be Potluck In Heaven"! These finger lickin' recipes will make your mouth water. This book is country eating for dummies guide. The commentary is hilarious and dead on. The recipes are some that you wouldn't even be able to pry out of your Granny. This book is the best recipe book I have EVER read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

At first glance, I thought this book to be a recipe book. Its not. This book is all about how the authors, hosts of a radio show, feel about dieting. They also talk about their favorite foods, and how or how not to eat said foods. I really found absolutely no point to this book, except to poke fun at 'diets' and/or healthy eating habits. The book was anything but helpful to people in today's society, and it is the perfect book for you if you want a book that has a 'quitting' attitude on eating right.
As you can probably guess, this book did not get too high of a rating for me. There were two things that I kind of took offense to: The way that it almost seemed to mock healthy eating, and the way it took the Bible SO FAR out of context. The book addressed Scripture many times, but seemed to take it out of context, even changing words from passages at times. The twisted the Word to make it fit their way of thinking about food. I also feel like this book was almost worshipping food. The authors tended to give food a personality, like had feeling and emotion. As someone who has struggled with eating healthy and keeping my body a 'temple' for Christ, this book was not a good one. I really would not recommend this book to ANYBODY that wants encouragement on losing weight, maintaining your weight, or trying to eat healthy. If I could give this book no stars, I really would consider it.

By Rick Burgess & Bill "Bubba" Bussey
This isn't a recipe book for food, but it is a recipe for Laughter.
There are recipes included, and I'm headed to the kitchen to try their bbq sauce.
The first chapter is the
Rick & Bubba "Hey, you got to live" Diet,
Which pretty much tells it all. If you are on a diet, get off it, and eat. And eat the Southern Way!
The food they describe is just good food, and don't forget the butter or Mayo, or any other condiment that you would want.
One of my favorite quotes from the book
"If you're going on a diet, then just eat less food, don't start messing around with diet versions of regular food that were never meant to be fat free."
"Fat-free Cheesecake? Ice cream? Butter? Haven't we carried ths practical joke on long enough?"
Also included in this book are their 10 favorite places to eat, and their Food Fairs and Festivals of interest.
Rick and Bubba have something to say about casseroles, too. In fact, if it has anything to do with food, these two have something to say about it, and I have to say I agree with most of their statements.
There are some recipes in the book, listed under
Rick & Bubba's Secret Recipe File.
I had to laugh at their advice about eating fried chicken, with a fork and knife.
Somehow it just isn't the same.
I'm sure part of it was meant to be tongue in cheek but, if you enjoy hearing it told the way it really is, read this book.

I received a free book from Booksneeze to read and review,
the opinions written here are my own,
no money was paid for this review.
Posted March 27, 2010
When I first saw this book, I thought it was just another cookbook. It's not, really, although there are recipes at the end of the book and peppered throughout. What it actually is, is a hilarious smorgasbord of just about everything. It even includes The Top 10 Reason to Attend The Annual Spam Festival, and Rick And Bubba's Weight Loss Tips.
All of the recipes that are included are simple to make and don't use 5 million ingredients you need Google to look up and figure out what exactly they are, and if your family will even eat it.
So if you are on the hunt for a fun gift book for the foodie in your life, or just in search of a laugh, Rick & Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub delivers. I'd pick this book up on my own dime - because I'm on the Rick and Bubba's "Hey You Gotta Live!" Diet. ;) If you're just looking for recipes, you will probably want to stay away from this book though, as it really is more humor than an addition to your cookbook library. (Though it will be lovingly included on mine - I plan to make their Hushpuppy recipe!)
As a heads up, this book features large type making it an easy read, as well as fast.
I received a copy of this book to write a review. All opinions are my own!
Posted March 26, 2010
Alright, I must admit that when I requested this book from the Booksneeze book review program, I had never heard of Rick & Bubba and I was fully expecting a cookbook. And with pictures of onion rings, pizza, burgers and fried chicken on the cover, it had to be good food!
When I got the book I was disappointed that it is not a cookbook at all! Sure, it has some recipes in it, and a few of them look really good, but if you are expecting a book full of down-home good cooking, this is not the book for you. If you've never heard of Rick & Bubba before, they are a pair of comedians (I think?) who have a radio show and have written a few comedic books. This is a book talking about how Rick & Bubba look at and experience food ("Hey, you gotta live") and it is good, clean humour...even including some biblical references! This is more like the type of book I would give as a gag gift or have sitting in my bathroom than one I would have on a bookshelf. But that said, it was entertaining to read, and I can only imagine what Rick & Bubba would be like live!

The title just about says it all. If there is anything you want to know about food, you will more than likely find it in this book.
This book, written by Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey, the self-proclaimed "sexiest fat men in America", is hilarious! I could not put it down once I started reading it. To be honest, I was expecting it to be more of a cookbook, and while it does have a few recipes scattered throughout, it is more about their take on food. Which, by the way, is pretty funny. I mean, when they quoted Big Bird from Sesame Street to prove a point about giblets, I was literally laughing out loud. They also have a few "top ten" lists which were great, especially the "Never-To-Be-Broken Rules Of The Church Potluck".
But, if you only read one section in this entire book, it should definitely be "The Rick And Bubba Restaurant Rating System". As funny as it is, it is also so true!
I would not recommend buying this book if you are looking for a traditional cookbook, because that is not what this book is about. This book is written to make you laugh, with a few recipes thrown in. I can not wait to try their Peanut Butter Bars Of Joy. I love chocolate and peanut butter, and these bars have both. Yum.
I would recommend this book to anyone with a sense of humor.
Posted March 24, 2010
This book is written by two radio personalities. On their radio, they are probably really funny but honestly I just didn't get most of the humor.
I love cookbooks. I could just sit down and read a good cookbook in an afternoon. This book is not that way.
It is written a large font and that just got on my nerves. It was hard for me to read.
The recipes that are included in the book look fairly simple to make. The places that were listed where to eat looked really good and made me hungry.
As for making me grow in my faith, well, it didn't challenge me. However, it was not a book that was written to make in grow in faith.
If you are a fan of the radio show, you might like the book and get the humor. If not, well, you might just want to pass on.
Blessings to you!!! You are loved!!!
I was given this book by Thomas Nelson for review only.

I had the chance to review Rick & Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub by Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey. This book is a comical view of the world of dieting with joking asides and recipes you would never find in any diet book that include things like butter, spam, etc. This book is easy to read and gives a serious grouping of literature some humor.
Now onto my own review...this book has very large text, which makes it easy to read. It also does have some recipes, but none that would prompt me to purchase this book. I must say that I never really got the point of the book. It seems to be taking wise cracks at the diet industry but the "punch lines" do not make much sense and are not that funny. I must admit, I have no clue who these people are or even that they are famous in any way since I have never heard of them in my entire life. I would not waste the money to print this book, let alone purchase it. If you are wise, you will not waste the time to even look at this book. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Perhaps I am biased since I am female, maybe a male would have a better view of this book.

it's more a collection of personal preferences and "rules".
the print is large and easy to read. and the chapters are relevant to the book's own style. the substance, however, is lacking. there's a lot of talk. the authors are radio personalities. and actually, if they read their book on air, it'd do much better. because on print, it's a fail.
there are only 23 recipes in this 206 page book.

Rick and Bubba are my type of people, they love food and they love eating it, they enjoy almost anything and know just how to spice things up. Rick and Bubba enjoy going to church supper, eating at cracker barrel and they throw a few recipes into some very very hilarious commentary as well. This is a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat and should truly be read from cover to cover. I hope that you to will read this book and enjoy it as much as I did. The funniest food book I've read EVER!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
