You know what you need to do to lose weight, so why can't you do it?
Morbidly obese and desperately unhappy, Gregg McBride asked himself this question for years, until something different finally "clicked," and enabled him to embark on a weight-loss journey of 250 pounds that has now lasted ten years and still counting.
Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking in its honesty, Weightless is Gregg's story, but it is much more. It's an exclusive weight-loss plan with menus, recipes, exercises, and motivational techniques. Weightless will move, educate, entertain, and inspire anyone who is ready for change.
Gregg McBride is a film and television writer and producer living in Los Angeles, where he works for companies including Disney, Paramount, Sony, ABC Family, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, and others. His blog, JustStopEatingSoMuch.com, focuses on the topics of weight loss and food addiction. McBride has made multiple appearances on the Today Show and is also the author of the book Just Stop Eating So Much!, as well as a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.
