Triple M’s Gus Worland at Marrickville Library

Popular Triple M radio host Gus Worland is discussing his new book, How to Lose a Few Kegs (without busting a gut) at Marrickville Library on Wednesday 19 October.

After years of complying with conventional wisdom about getting fit (and failing repeatedly), Gus learnt these mostly distorted messages did not work for blokes like him.

In his new book, Gus outlines why training harder and eating less didn’t align with his genetic energy systems, and how, once his behaviour towards good health became habitual, he introduced ‘the right’ dose of exercise.

Gus practiced ‘the right’ formula and now represents what is possible. In fact, he has made clear that it is unacceptable for ‘bigger’ blokes to settle with living fat and sick. Three years on, Gus is living proof that blokes who are more susceptible to weight gain most certainly can live at their healthy weight, while still enjoying a beer and pie at the footy.

At Marrickville Library, Gus will outline why current weight loss trends didn’t work for him, why you should be avoiding certain foods and, why hard exercise will only consolidate further ill-health. He will also discuss the foods that naturally self-regulate one’s best weight and health.

With the reported 40% of Aussie blokes, who, like Gus, are challenged with living near their ideal weight, How to Lose a Few Kegs (without busting a gut) will endeavour to encourage the ‘bigger blokes’ to believe in a more active and consequently healthy lifestyle. Wednesday 19 October, 7.45pm-9pm at Marrickville Library.
