No one says losing weight is easy, but Matt Hoover is here to tell you that if he can do it, you can, too. Matt began gaining weight in college, depressed after failing to achieve the high standards he had set for his wrestling career. By the time he reached 340 pounds he had given up on college, wrestling, and his first marriage. When he was cast on NBC's The Biggest Loser, he had no idea how much his life (or his waist size) was about to change.
With the help of exercise physiologist Sheri R. Colberg, Ph.D., Matt separates weight-loss facts from fiction, describes his workout routine, and offers advice on choosing healthy yet satisfying foods. Matt has experienced first-hand the emotional challenges of being overweight and knows how life changes when the pounds begin to fall off. He speaks candidly on sex, divorce, and a new life with his wife, Suzy, whom he met on The Biggest Loser. Honest and full of sage, no-nonsense advice, this book is sure to inspire and guide anyone who wants to lose a few pounds or completely transform his or her body and life.
