there are sooo many reasons I have said no, ranging from, ‘it’s not like i’m the only person to manage it’ and ‘it’s not so much a diet system as desperation’ to ‘i can’t afford a ghost writer anyway’
The main one though is that no one would buy a very short diet book called
‘put that cake down and get off your fat arse’.
It’s true. Fat people want getting rid of the weight to be easy. They want group sessions, point calculated biscuits and miracle drugs to do all the work for them. I’m no different. I tried every extreme diet, the Cabbage Soup diet, the Atkins diet, Weight Watchers, Slimming World, I did over the counter drugs, prescribed by the doctor (and now removed from the market because they are dangerous) drugs, bought off the internet drugs. I tried everything and nothing worked until… you got it, I put the cake down and got off my fat arse.
It wasn’t easy. It will never be easy to control and maintain my weight, I was lucky in that during the divorce I was able to turn working out into an escape, rather than the misery i’d always seen it as before. I also tried lots of different sports before settling on kickboxing as the one for me.
The fact is though, no one would buy my book, it would be blunt and honest and would offer no promise to miraculously turn you into Angelina Jolie without you actually changing your life. So unless there is a sudden appetite among dieters for the truth about weight loss you will not be seeing ‘Put that cake down and get off your fat arse’ on the shelves.
I may copyright the name though just in case.
