The Sexy Beast Diet will be the first diet book with an attitude. Written for men, it’ll be a bit edgy. Parents with young children may want to keep it on a top closet shelf.
Why am I writing this?
“Aren’t there thousands of books on dieting already?” you ask.
But there are plenty of men who are, um, let’s call it…”hefty,” who wouldn’t get four pages into any diet book out there today.
I know. I’m friends with about a hundred of them.
These guys still need to understand what is making them, ah, hefty, how this extra weight is slowly killing them—really, killing them (see Chapter Two)—and how to get a handle on it.
Short and sweet—I’m writing it in fewer words than the number of angels who can sit on the head of a pin—The Sexy Beast Diet is a book chock full of vital information delivered with enough spice to keep any man reading.
Why the title?
Every man, with the possible exception of the pope, thinks he’s a sexy beast. I figure men will see themselves in the title, but the title does more work than that, it gives women an opening to discuss weight issues with a man she loves.
I figure women will hand The Sexy Beast Diet to their guys and say, “Honey, you’re a sexy beast, but I’m worried about your health so you need to read this.”
I know that’s kind of a backhanded compliment with an underlying touch of manipulation, but getting your loved ones to maintain the proper weight is an essential proposition that sometimes requires unorthodox measures.
Read it for free.
I’ll post chapters of the book here as I write them. It would be great to have your input: What works, what doesn’t. Are the jokes funny? Obnoxious? Are there typos?
Please make a note of your suggestions in the comment box that follows each chapter.
