Luc Carl is an author, the voice of rock 'n roll on SiriusXM satellite radio, long-distance runner, semi-professional bowler, drummer, party maker, and running coach having multiple certifications in track & field and endurance. After moving to the big city at a young age, he worked is way up, managing his own rock 'n roll bar by the age of 25. After years of hard living his quest to become the sexiest man in the world has been chronicled on his wildly successful blog. He is originally from Omaha, NE. Go Big Red.

With his trademark Rock 'N Roll hair and snakeskin spandex pants, plus a hot rod and a Harley, Luc Carl fit the part as a bar manager based in New York City's gritty Lower East Side. And life was good for this Omaha, Nebraska, transplant—a talented drummer who originally moved to the big city to pursue his Rock 'N Roll dreams—until, suddenly, it wasn't. Fast forward through seven years of working long hours, bingeing on late-night Chinese food, and drinking excessively; life had found Luc forty pounds overweight and completely out of shape. But when he turned to the "experts" for advice—reading countless fitness and weight-loss books in the process—he discovered that they all made the same claim: "You can't drink alcohol if you want to lose weight." Luc decided to take matters into his own hands to transform his body and his life his way—a sort of "f*ck you" to all those so-called experts.

Full of charismatic wit and raucous stories about his life, The Drunk Diet will inspire and challenge you to become fitter, healthier, and happier. Luc's fitness philosophy isn't about following a list of rigid rules or traditional "do this, not that" charts, but gaining a better understanding of how the body works and discovering what you're personally willing to change about your lifestyle in order to reach your goals. For him, that meant trading in the crap he was eating for unprocessed, natural foods and embracing a newfound love for exercise, but never sacrificing his social life (or his love for cold beer).

This is the story of how one chain-smoking, cheeseburger-eating, hard-partying Rock 'N Roller—a self-proclaimed "out-of-shape, bloated asshole"—grew into an avid runner and cyclist and, ultimately, a happier version of himself. He will be the first to tell you: If he could do it, so can you.
