Summary
  • "A candid, humorous account of the author's journey from morbid obesity and drug addiction to vibrant health and happiness"--Provided by publisher
  • "'What happens when Tony Soprano meets Deepak Chopra? That's how people have described my story. I might throw some Woody Allen in there and a dash of Hunter S. Thompson.' So says Frank Ferrante of his amazing journey from obesity and drug addiction to vibrant health and happiness. At 54 years old, Ferrante was the least likely candidate for a major personal transformation. He thought that 'vegan' was a planet. Wellness was not in his vocabulary, and he couldn't be bothered with self-help. He was also, however, for those very reasons the best candidate for a major personal transformation. He weighed close to 300 pounds and suffered from a slew of issues that were his unhappy legacy as an ex-junkie and ex-alcoholic. They included hepatitis C, chronic fatigue, joint pain, respiratory issues, depression, suicidal thoughts, and a libido that had gone into early retirement. One day, he stumbled into a place called Cafe Gratitude--a vegan raw food restaurant run by three 20-something hipsters. Unbeknownst to him, they'd been thinking about finding a fat guy, filming him on a raw food diet, and making a documentary that would be the polar opposite of Super Size Me. Ferrante was looking for something, anything, to create a shift in his life. As he says, 'Like zillions of people, I was hungry not so much for food, but for love.' Never mind that he was old enough to be the boys' father or that he'd ridiculed the New Age herd for years--he accepted them pretty much on the spot as his new 'transformational cheerleaders' and began a redemptive odyssey that changed every single aspect of his life. In his book May I Be Frank, he writes about being the subject of their documentary movie, and also what happened next, post-transformation: he found love"--Provided by publisher
