Gregg McBride was always determined to make it big Although not quite this literally.
By the time he was a young adult, Gregg McBride topped the scales at over 450 pounds and wore a sixty-inch belt.
Pretending airline seatbelts fit across his belly, eating out of the trash to cheat on his diets, and working as an overweight stripper are just some of the misadventures Gregg endured as he continually tried to win his battle of the bulge.
It was only when Gregg took an inward journey that he was able to free himself from his food addiction and take off more than 250 pounds of excess weight, which he’s kept off for over a decade.
Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking in its honesty Weightless is a tale of “food gone wrong” that chronicles the before, the during, and the after in a way no other book has, and will move, educate, entertain, and inspire anyone who is ready for change.

Weightless is a powerful memoir. McBride shares many painful experiences in this book, but it is never a morose read. He manages to keep a zest for life and sense of humor at the forefront. For me, it made the book that much more impactful, because despite abuse and society’s penchant for looking down on the obese, he overcame it all with nothing more than the decision that he was going to change. Real change is hard, and he didn’t flinch from sharing that difficulty. I wanted to clap for him at multiple points in the book because he kept trying. I liked the way the book was divided into time frames in his life. He gave examples of his typical diet at each point. Another fascinating part was short essays written by people who knew him along the way. They talked about how they saw him, and sometimes it aligned with his memory, and other times not. It really added to the story! I look forward to reading more works by him in the future.
