DIET and NUTRITION

In this book, Ugel shares not only the foods he ate that helped him lose weight, but also the struggles he had with various foods he knew weren’t good for him. He longs for Popeye’s fried chicken, a rack of ribs and meat lover’s pizza among other things throughout this book.

Ugel started off his weight loss journey with a full body cleanse to jumpstart his weight loss, which he credits for giving him great material for his book. He doesn’t recommend doing a cleanse as a way to lose weight, but rather a way to remove toxins from the body to give yourself a good start for a weight loss program.

In addition, keeping a food journal is absolutely essential from Ugel’s point of view. He also recommends Weight Watchers as a great way to track your nutrition. Especially for those that may not be able to afford a nutritionist and a personal trainer. He suggests choosing the personal trainer and Weight Watchers as a less expensive alternative to a nutritionist.

EXERCISE

I’m With Fatty chronicles Ugels attitude towards exercise which transforms from hesitation and resistance to willingness and enjoyment.

He makes the investment of hiring a personal trainer to help him create a fitness program and stay accountable to it. Throughout the book, he offers his fitness suggestions as well as humorous experiences with exercise as way to poke fun at himself and make the reader feel like he or she is not alone in feeling like a large fish out of water at the gym.

CONCLUSION

I’m with Fatty takes a different approach to one man’s weight loss. Author Edward Ugel uses humor and real life experience to draw you into his journey and take you through his journey to lose 50 pounds in 50 weeks.

Often men aren’t thought of as the type to worry about weight or even be embarrassed by being overweight. Ugel shows that men do care about being overweight and he went as far as to do something about it.

This book shows you how to deal with those food cravings, food addictions and beat them so that you can lose weight as well. Be prepared to laugh and chuckle as you find inspiration through this humorous but very real story of successful weight loss.
