Publisher Description

Gregg McBride was always determined to make it big—although not quite this literally.

By the time he was a young adult, Gregg McBride topped the scales at over 450 pounds and wore a sixty-inch belt.Pretending airline seatbelts fit across his belly, eating out of the trash to cheat on his diets, and working as an overweight stripper are just some of the misadventures Gregg endured as he continually tried to win his battle of the bulge.

It was only when Gregg took an inward journey that he was able to free himself from his food addiction and take off more than 250 pounds of excess weight, which he’s kept off for over a decade.

Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking in its honesty Weightless is a tale of “food gone wrong” that chronicles the before, the during, and the after in a way no other book has, and 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.

A very real journey into finding out who you are.

"Weightless" is a very compelling read. The funny, sad, uplifting tale of a creative, sensitive, intelligent person who just happened to be born into the wrong family and learned to cope by over eating. His meandering journey to eventual physical and mental health is an uplifting story for any size, big or small. From well over 400lbs. to 175lbs. we follow Gregg through life's misadventures and every diet known to man, only to discover that finally being thin is not a panacea for all of life's problems and we are all only a "work in progress".
