Ever struggled with your weight? Or did you stop struggling years ago and let the pies win? Peter FitzSimons has been there and eaten that.

Take tips from someone who knows how to eat and drink way too much. And how to stop. Peter FitzSimons was a large lad with little self control who has found the light and finally gotten lighter. In this book he tells you how and shows you who is responsible for you getting fat in the first place. (Spoiler Alert: It's you. And Sugar.) Have you ever wondered which diet works? Well Peter FitzSimons has devoted his adult life to trying all of them and failing miserably. But you may have noticed this man mountain has lost a lot of his landspace over the last few years. This is the tale of how that happened and how it can happen to the bloke in your life.
