Gregg McBride was always determined to make it big -- Although not quite this literally.

By the time he was a young adult, Gregg McBride topped the scales at over 450 pounds and wore a sixty-inch belt.

Pretending airline seatbelts fit across his belly, eating out of the trash to cheat on his diets, and working as an overweight stripper are just some of the misadventures Gregg endured as he continually tried to win his battle of the bulge.

It was only when Gregg took an inward journey that he was able to free himself from his food addiction and take off more than 250 pounds of excess weight, which he's kept off for over a decade.

Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking in its honesty Weightless is a tale of "food gone wrong" that chronicles the before, the during, and the after in a way no other book has, and will move, educate, entertain, and inspire anyone who is ready for change.

Gregg McBride is a film and television writer and producer living in Los Angeles, where he works for companies including Disney, Paramount, Sony, ABC Family, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, and others. His blog, JustStopEatingSoMuch.com, focuses on the topics of weight loss and food addiction. McBride has made multiple appearances on the Today Show and is also the author of the book Just Stop Eating So Much! , as well as a featured blogger for the Huffington Post .
