"Hey, hey,'s Fat Albert!" Honestly, there was no worse name to have as a fat kid than Albert. Confessions of an Obese Child is a childhood memoir of a man who was a morbidly obese child & adolescent. Confessions highlights singular & formative events that occurred during this time in the form of vignettes, such as the locker room, gym class, the Big & Tall Store, all-you-can-eat buffets, the community swimming pool, the classroom, athletics, the opposite sex, his attempts at suicide and more. Albert Gregory balances the melancholic tinge of the memoir with levity and humor. At the end of the book, he explains how he lost over 100 pounds in the final year of high school. This book is ideal for parents of obese children, obese children themselves, those suffering from disordered and emotional eating, self-loathing, and more.

Additionally, Confessions of an Obese Child is an ongoing podcast found on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you listen to podcasts. The podcast features 20 additional chapters which deal with Albert's post-weight loss adjustment, his continued eating disorder and self-loathing, and more. In particular, he focuses on how the coping mechanisms he developed while being a bullied youth lingered to his adulthood and affect his current relationships, both professionally and personally. Albert also interviews other formerly obese children. Albert also hosts Naturopathy Earth Radio & Occult Health News podcast, which aside from discussing clean eating principles and exposing toxins in the food & house, gives proven pointers on how to lose and maintain your weight loss. Albert is also a certified Paleo-inspired wellness coach if you are in the need of someone to help optimize your health.
