Who says you can’t lose weight while getting wasted? Not Lüc Carl. Tune in to this week’s episode of The Speakeasy as Damon Boelte chats with Lüc, who’s latest book, aptly titled The Drunk Diet: How I Lost 40 Pounds . . . Wasted: A Memoir, helps people get healthy while maintaining a rock star life. Find out how he went from binge parties to running marathons and what it takes to maintain a balance of health and fun. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

“I consider the book more like watching Rocky I, when he was smoking and drinking and Mickey was telling him to give it up. It’s like the anti-diet book. I didn’t want to be told what to do and wanted to encourage people to diet while having fun.”

“There’s nothing more rock and roll than going out there busting your ass for four hours and running. That’s what rock and roll is all about – excess.”
