Simultaneously complacent in the security of a stable, married life and maddeningly preoccupied with the rearing of young children, many men have a tendancy to subordinate their physical well-being to the demands of family. Indeed, study after study has shown that men are more reluctant than women to face up to worrisome symptoms or go to the doctor for check-ups. Fat Daddy is designed to help busy fathers balance fitness and family in an informative, useful, and light-hearted way.
Fat Daddy's simple formula combines an easy-to-follow diet plan, high-intensity "micro" workouts, emphasis on daily activity that gets the blood flowng (like parking farther from the office), family fitness, and male-oriented humor. Filled with lively anecdotes from real-live Fat Daddies, the book will address the fitness fumbles that have become commonplace with today's busy fathers. In Fat Daddy, fathers (and thier partners) will be able to recognize and guard against the usual fitness dilemmas encountered by young fathers, such as eating for two during pregnancy, more trips to the drive-in with the kids, those Saturday morning donut runs, and the all-too frequent (and fatty) business dinners. Throughout Fat Daddy, dads will be coached (using humor, pictures, and facts) on the new rules for fitness, which will come as a stark contrast to their free-eating 20s.
Recurring icons, charts, sidebars, and boxes will keep the reader moving quickly through Fat Daddy's 10 chapters, and its generally positive approach, lively and practical advice, and useful to-do lists will work together to inspire dads to take immediate steps to improve their overall fitness.

Review:

It's really funny. Bottom line, anybody who writes a fitness book and uses the word lardass just might be worth reading. (Jenny Staletovich Cleveland Plain Dealer)

He gives an excellent summary of the pros and cons of almost every current diet plan and shows how his diet fits into each one. And his fitness program is as clear to follow as his diet program... (Publishers Weekly)

It uses sports terminology and humor to help dads transform their fitness game. (Sarasota Herald-Tribune)

Fathers who fully embrace the concept of family unity may find themselves also embracing a little more weight because of time, gravity and family meal routines. Author Lawrence Schwartz hopes to help the overweight lover in the house in Fat Daddy/Fit Daddy... (Shauna Rhone Cincinnati Enquirer)

Eating right and making time for exercixe is the only way to escape what Schwartz calls 'Fat Daddy Syndrome.' (Chris Bynum New Orleans Times Picayune)

Moms aren't the only ones with extra pounds to fight after the kids are born....Schwartz came up with a program that echoes what books targeted to women have been saying for years: Eat right and exercise. (Jennifer Biggs Memphis Commercial Appeal)

When men become fathers, they gain more than a family. They also gain weight....Fat Daddy/Fit Daddy...offers an entertaining game plan to get in shape. (Susan Thompson Tampa Tribune)

Schwartz tells it like it is―that balancing food, fitness and family should be every man's priority and can be accomplished with some planning and prioritizing. Presents an entertaining and sensible lifestyle and exercise program for the working family man. (Library Journal)

If the only thing that's healthy about you is your sense of humor, it may be time to give Fat Daddy/Fit Daddy a whirl. Author Lawrence Schwartz presents down-to-earth eating and exercising strategies using football terminology and good ol'-boy talk. It scores an extra point for making fitness a game for the entire family. (Fort Worth Star Telegram)

...guides men to a healthy diet and exercise regime―and a pre-baby waistline. (Athens Banner Herald)
