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. In The Great Aussie Bloke Slim-Down, he will lead you through the fads that failed him, the diets that died fast and left him furious, and the ways his waistline kept the belt industry in business.

Take tips from someone who knows how to eat and drink way too much - and has finally learnt how to stop. Peter FitzSimons was a large lad with little self-control who has found the light and eventually become lighter. In this book, written in fluent Aussie-bloke, he tells you how to live a better, healthier and happier life, while showing you who is responsible for you getting fat in the first place. So if you're serious about losing weight, sobering up and all the rest, what you have to do is this: face the truth, the elephant in the room . . . is YOU.
