The Real Fat Poo - About The Author in his own words
As a teenager I was extremely overweight. I grew up in a Takeaway Roadhouse in Tasmania, Australia. Constantly I would stuff myself full of deep fried food, ice cream and sugary drinks on a daily basis. At my biggest was 110 Kgs which is massive considering I am only 170cm on a good day. Kids would call me "Fat S%#*" amongst other things, hence the title Fat Poo. When I turned 18 I left home running away to Sydney - 2000 Kilometres from Tasmania.
Combining a harsh diet of starvation with excessive cardio I lost a huge 53kgs in a short period of time. Hooray!..... No Hooray. I didn't know it but I was living a recurring cycle of eating disorders. Throughout my twenties I kept the weight off dangerously - while simultaneously spiralling into a state of depression inspired mood swings. After many lost jobs, failed relationships and destroyed friendships I realised that a new healthy lifestyle was needed to maintain my sanity - let alone those few left around me. I succeeded through educating myself on healthy eating and exercise.
Fifteen years later I returned to Tasmania to tell my story. "Fat Poo" is my satirical inspiring tale of how I went from obesity, lost weight the wrong way, alienated all those around me, and eventually taught myself and implemented the skills on how to lead a healthy fulfilling lifestyle.
