Why do I still get hungry when I'm already fat? It doesn't make sense. It's not fair.
During the 1980s and 1990s, a time when the world had already convinced itself that eating less and moving more was the simple solution to its burgeoning obesity epidemic, Brendan grew up having committed the cardinal sin of being fat.
Then in 2015, his health failing and with both time and options running out, one fateful encounter finally set in motion a personal journey of discovery that would see him achieve and maintain a healthy weight for the first time in his life.
Now, with our metabolic health in a worse state than ever, Brendan reflects on his own weight loss transformation and speaks out against the continuing one-size-fits-all dietary dogma that had previously condemned him to decades of unnecessary suffering.
The Fat Ginger Nerd is an inspiring personal story, woven with practical weight loss help and some startling insights into how we ended up with this public health crisis.
