Yesterday, St. Martin’s Press acquired a book by Lower East Side bar-owner Luc Carl. He’s best known at Lady Gaga’s boyfriend, though he has another distinction as well: he lost 40 pounds while maintaining a lifestyle of consistent daily binge drinking.
What can we expect from The Drunk Diet? Well, The Observer may not have an advance copy yet, but we have sifted through Luc Carl’s blog to give you a taste of just what you can expect from his forthcoming literary debut, which we’re sure will be a hit.
For the better part of my twenties, I basically did drink beer all day long. I smoked cigarettes all day long. Most Sundays I would wake up with a hangover from three to seven nights in a row of partying and dancing, crack a beer, and would meet up with friends for more drinking and/or BBQing. (OK, I’m not going to lie, although I’m going in to my thirties, Sundays don’t look like they’re going to change any time soon.)
I’m completely addicted to hot sauce. It’s one vice I’ve kept but I’m slowly moving away from it.. I’ve compiled a list of nearly every hot sauce you’ll find in a normal grocery store. Keep in mind that hot sauce has little to no nutritional value, and is one of the leading causes of gas. Spicy foods also cause ulcers, and rip apart the lining of your stomach. But fuckin a, I gave up cigarettes and cheese for fucks sake, can I live??
I’ve been drunk for about 12 days straight. With the exception of last Thursday when I slept all day and night.
Dehydrated, dripping with sweat. I passed my moving finish line and put my hands on top of my head to catch my breath. Then I drank 4 bottles of water and worked on my abs.
Two hours later, at noon, I cracked my first beer.
Ladies and gentleman, Luc Carl, soon-to-be-published writer. But, hey, if this diet actually works, more power to him.
