The Speakeasy - Episode 56 - Drunk Diet with Lüc Carl
Who says you can't lose weight while getting wasted? Not Lüc Carl. Tune in to this week's episode of The Speakeasy as Damon Boelte chats with Lüc, who's latest book, aptly titled The Drunk Diet: How I Lost 40 Pounds . . . Wasted: A Memoir, helps people get healthy while maintaining a rock star life. Find out how he went from binge parties to running marathons and what it takes to maintain a balance of health and fun. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.
