The Drunk Diet is the beer-soaked tale of a long-haired, leather-clad Rock ’N Roll party-maker who transformed a whiskey-and-5-A.M.-cheeseburger lifestyle into a wildly successful weight-loss regime. If you've ever felt intimidated by the whey-guzzling, creatine-popping models on muscle magazine covers, or unmotivated by ridiculously buff fitness gurus who swear you can look just like them if you simply follow their completely unrealistic, masochistic program...OR if you want to read about a regular guy who managed to change his life for the better, this book is for you.
Make no mistake. Lüc Carl is the real deal.
In his frank and funny book The Drunk Diet, Lüc Carl shares legit running tips.
What happens when a rock 'n' roll bartender finds that too many nights of boozing and eating pizza pile on the pounds? "The Drunk Diet" -- which, despite its title, means learning to love running, and drinking in moderation.
Tipping the profanity scale by dropping the F-bomb 288 times, this long-haired, leather-loving nontraditional-diet guru proves that by swapping midnight burger binges and processed junk for exercise and natural foods, you too can get back into your spandex tippling as you go.
His enthusiasm is infectious, and you are basically hearing him talk through the page. That's a rarity for any writer to achieve.
I could open the book to any page and be amused at the way he tells his story, but his method is reliable and his information true.
Rock 'N Roll Jesus
His book chronicles his journey to thin and proves that boozing and losing needn't always be mutually exclusive. You might not party like Lüc, but you can still learn from him about keeping your belly flat when your tumbler's full.
Carl is refreshingly up-front...ample amounts of sensible advice, whether you're lookin to get ripped or just drop a few pounds.
If you need motivation to ride, run, or just eat better, you'll find Carl to be an inspirational cheerleader for the healthy rock-and-roll life.
The Drunk Diet couldn't have come at a better time in my life. After 20 years working as a chef, eating all day, drinking all night and then eating AGAIN at 5 am, something had to change. But I didn't even know how to begin changing decades long bad habits; Lüc Carl demonstrates that YOU truly are the key to your own health and happiness--not expensive gym memberships or unrealistic diet plans developed by "experts". This is as straight forward as it gets, with real advice that WILL change your life.
Rock n Roll + long hair + whiskey + beer - cigarettes - 5 A.M. cheesesteaks + balls + running + cycling + broccoli - 40 pounds = The Drunk Diet.
