"His uncelebrity fitness book is probably the funniest thing on the market today."--People magazine
"Undaunted by the USA's hopeless devotion to physical fitness, author Dave Barry squares off against serious exercise junkies with Stay Fit and Healthy Until You're Dead, identifying the absurdity of it all in textbook format."--USA Today
From the Back Cover
Stay Fit and Healthy Until You're Dead
Fitness and vitality can be yours, writes Dave Barry-- provided you have the discipline, drive, and the plain old-fashioned guts required to procure the necessary steroids. This manual may help, too, but you'll just have to buy it and find out.
Barry on executive fitness
Today's top executives eat teeny meals and run 10 miles and play tennis and work out every day. Of course, they're so busy getting fit that many don't even know where their offices are. That's why the entire U.S. economy is now manufactured overseas.
Barry on fitness after death
A quick chill, to approximately 325 degrees below zero, yields a muscle tone that we normally associate only with world-class body builders and certain minerals!
Barry on nutrition
Every morning you should take a vitamin A pill, followed by a vitamin D, followed by an E, until you've spelled the healthful mnemonic phrase: "A DEAD CAD BAKED A BAD CAKE, ACE." And eat all the fiber-rich foods you can shove down your throat; these would be mainly your cotton candy and your Slim Jims.
Barry on junk foods
White bread and refined sugar, if eaten, cause death within hours. So it's important to watch what you eat, at least until you get it inside your mouth. After that it becomes pretty disgusting.

Dave Barry wrote this some time ago, but I like his brand of humor. Funny book.Published 6 months ago by Amazon Customer Ray F.
Barry gives his slant to exercise in his own special way. This is a must for any reading room book rack at a health spa. Dave was in fine form when he put out this.Published 21 months ago by Dee Kaiser
