‘The Bill’ star, Bruce Byron, takes us through his weight loss journey from childhood to his recent 3 stone triumph and his bid to become fit and healthy in ‘Fat Bloke Slims’.
After being caught in the yo-yo diet cycle for most of his life, Bruce Byron finally decided to take control of his weight with a balanced diet and a fresh approach to exercise.
As he calls himself throughout the book, ‘Fat Bloke’ was obese as a child, even attending weekly weigh-ins at the local slimming club. Through his adult life Bruce struggled to control his weight but never really identified why and what he could do to resolve the ongoing issue.
Encouragement from his wife and death in the family finally led him to make the decision, he needed to lose weight and get fit and to write a book about it – Fat Bloke Slims.
Fat Bloke Slims details Bruce’s journey to lose 3 stone, the pit-falls, the highs and everything in-between. This is not a diet book, nor pages full of menu plans and do and don’ts. It is simply Bruce Byron’s experiences and his practical tips to shifting those pounds and fitting exercise into your life. His relaxed writing style makes for easy reading whilst provoking thoughts about your own weight loss goals and eating and exercise habits.
Fat Bloke Slims advice is simple. Eat less, in the form of a balanced diet and exercise more. You may already know this but Fat Bloke not only describes why you should do this, supported by statistics and research, but how he did it which may help you too.
Along the way Fat Bloke Slims addresses emotional triggers that lead to comfort eating and drinking and Bruce Byron faces his fear of the gym. He learns why calorie counting really works, about his BMI/Body Mass Index and why his body measurements are just as important as the numbers on the scales!
