Fat One
I'll Take the Fat One

Release Date: AVAILABLE NOW!

In this tale, C.D. Shelton combines his passion for story telling and his knowledge of how our bodies work metabolically, in a fascinating story of finding one’s true-self. The book is written in an easy and entertaining manner.

The self-help part of this book brings awareness as to how you can lose weight and keep it off. You’ll learn about the glycemic index and how it will help you determine which foods are good or bad. You’ll also learn about: How you can live longer and have a healthier life; Anti-oxidants and how they can help you avoid illnesses; Lap band surgery; Heart disease; diet recommendations and so much more.

The fictional part of this novel is about a weight loss doctor who falls in love with one of his patients, and how the mysterious death of his office assistant’s sister changes his life and brings redemption to an otherwise shallow, hedonistic existence.

The following is an excerpt from a review given by Dr. Grady Harp, Amazon’s top book reviewer: “By incorporating the weight control information into a well blended story of finding one's true self, a solid love story, and a really fine detective tale, Shelton not only draws the reader into the hard facts he wishes to deliver, but does so in such a way that the seminars become personal experiences.”
