Editorial Reviews

Review

"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." ---Vanity Fair

From the Back Cover

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.

I work at the library and I remember the day this book came in, I took one look at it and thought, really? Sigh... But every time I passed it on the bookshelf it caught my attention, and then I saw people checking the book out, so, I grabbed a copy and started reading and didn't stop until I got to the last page, he had me at his disclaimer, page 1. It's not a "how to" diet book, he doesn't tell you "do this, eat that", it's simply HIS story, how he lost weight, what works for him, and how he found hope in a pair of running shoes! This is a great read for anyone who wants to make a change in their life, do better.... be better.... Don't let his hard rocker look and his cocky attitude fool you, he's a sweet, smart guy who did his homework and did the hard work to get where he's at today and wrote it all down in a book. Though I can check this book out for free anytime I want, I'm going to buy this book to keep around for whenever I need inspiration, motivation to keep moving, and a real good laugh!

I bought The Drunk Diet mainly because I love rock-and-roll and I love memoirs. What I got was something more - a ton of great eating/lifestyle tips and the inspiration to change my habits for the better. Luc's writing style is hilarious, intelligent and engaging. I've lived in NYC for a while now and I remember Luc from his bartender days. I always assumed he got his not-an-ounce-of-fat physique from the typical hipster tactics of cocaine and starvation. Who knew he was working his butt off the whole time? What a role model!

This book gave me the "oomph" we have all needed. Whether if just coming to the realization that our lives, and health suck, or we need a "booster shot." Hey, this is the MOST honest approach to health, and wellness, and life I've ever read.. If you are offended easily, then don't waste your time. If you are not, and need a kick in the ass to set you right, or maybe like me, you already run, eat healthy, but it was getting monotonous, and you need a pick me up... This is your read! I've bought the "Professionals books," Dr. Phil and yada yada yada, but I NEVER FINISHED THEM. They were dull, devoid of any real human connection,drive, and struggle. This isn't that kinda book... I finished it, and read it again.. It's staying right here, and not going to any yardsale pile! I will need these words, and thoughts, and struggles for as long as I live.. Thanks for such a powerful, insightful peek in your life.. And the changes you made! That couldn't have been easy by any mean's. I've great respect for you, and your accomplishments. Thank's for sharing Luc Carl. I think of certain things you wrote, when I struggle to get up,and lace up on a cold morning. Your words are so powerful, and moving!

Funny, entertaining, real....Luc tells it like it is. You can't live recklessly and be healthy and look 'hot in bed.' His journey is an entertaining read and an inspiration.

Not unlike Luc, I have read or tried to read various diet books. Most I have found to be too technical and clinical. As I started reading The Drunk Diet I realized its much more than a diet book, it's a story of a guy wanting to loose weight. And what a great story it is !
A very entertaining story of a party boy living it up in New York's Lower East Side. Luc Carl really puts the reader in the story. At times it's hilarious and other times it's down right scary! He talks about all the fun he's having and he talks about when he's taken the party too far. A lot of people will be able to relate to this story. I know I can.

Who hasn't eaten the greasy burger after a night of hard drinking? Luc Carl has and he comes to terms with it and what he does about it. This is really where the book got interesting for me ! I want to loose weight but I don't want to give up drinking!
Luc shows you how it is possible. With some exersize and some self control you can loose some weight and still have a social life!

This book isn't just for party people. It's for anybody that wants to look good and still be able to go out for a cocktail with a friend.
Its an easy read and also very inspiring. In fact I think I'm gonna go out for a run so I won't feel so guilty when I go out to party tonight!

Format: Hardcover
This modern day lifestyle guide, packs a mean punch of humor, honesty, humility and tough love.
It's no surprise I devoured this thing in under 48hours! At a time when the state of American health and fitness has reached red alert, it takes more than flooding the public with images of impossibly toned beefcakes and and multi-colored fruit smoothies to insist we make a change.
Luc's idiot-proof start-up kit speaks to today's generation, and like an exotic, rock n roll snake charmer, he cleverly replaces the same old, tired terminology of the genre (translating "healthy" into "sexy") mind-f***ing any jaded reader's perception of mental and physical health basics to a rip-roaring party train (note the recommended listening lists!). Opening a vein or two in this tell-all, Luc succeeds in painting the picture of the land of optimum health and confidence as your favorite, local downtown bar instead of the elitist VIP-only's club that previous health crusaders have used and poisoned this much-needed movement. Ladies and gentlemen, he's done the dirt and handed in the homework just in time. Bravo!
