Could it Be? A Diet Book Promoting Heavy Drinking

February 18, 2011

Yes, you read the title correctly. Expected to hit bookstores sometime in 2011 is the book The Drunk Diet, a memoir by Lüc Carl (a musician, bar manager, and Lady Gaga’s boyfriend) who states he lost 40 pounds…while drunk.

It’s difficult to tell at this point whether the book is simply a journal and personal account of Carl’s rocker lifestyle or a manual for others to follow for actual weight loss. Judging by the testimonials on his website from followers of his “diet” it seems as though the latter may be more accurate. In either case, the book may do more harm than good.

But could this be? Does this book actually endorse lots of drinking and partying while claiming to be a diet? Furthermore, could it lead to weight loss? The short answer is yes, it could. But just because a diet regimen leads to weight loss doesn’t necessarily mean it’s healthy. As for drinking alcohol in high amounts, common sense and a plethora of science would tell you that’s not a good idea.

In short, those looking for a book to that serves as a guide for weight loss and a healthier lifestyle may want to look elsewhere.
