Man v Fat Synopsis

One day Andrew Shanahan took a guttie to text to a mate. But once he had taken the picture he couldn't stop looking at it. The sheer horror of it forced him to wake up and realise how unhappy he was about his body and then resolve to change it. He soon realised that the dieting industry had turned its back on men. Men were expected to get fit, tone up and turn fat into a six-pack in six weeks. But there was nothing for men who simply didn't want a beer belly any more. In Man v Fat, Andrew Shanahan breaks down weight loss into its essential components. Based on his own experiences and research into the world of dieting and dietitians, this book will tell men what they need to know about losing weight, demystifying the nonsense around the subject and arming readers with everything they need to win their own battle against fat. Man v Fat is about three steps: 1. Understand why you got fat. 2. Learn how to lose weight. 3. Create a winning structure. Chapters include: What happened? Why am I fat?; The science of weight loss explained (it's comically simple); Getting your head right; Which diet is right for you; Sweating it out; The ways you are going to screw this up - and how not to; My mate says; The Essential Weight Loss Equipment; Your plan for a perfect month.
