Lady Gaga’s boyfriend Luc Carl doesn’t just date the world’s biggest pop star, he has his own dreams.
The former club promoter and DJ writes a blog and is pitching a book called The Drunk Diet, about how to get thin while still drinking yourself shit-faced almost every night.
Here’s an excerpt from his book synopsis:
“After reading countless books and being told time after time that it’s impossible to lose weight while drinking alcohol heavily, Lüc Carl decided to take matters into his own hands. Join him on his journey to lose 40 pounds, without giving up his principles of being a hard drinking party maker.”
Some of the tips from his blog include: drink top shelf liquor instead of bottom shelf, if you’re going to eat pasta, at least go out to a nice restaurant, and stay away from beer and egg yolks.
The tone of the whole blog is a little tongue-in-cheek, but he’s dead serious about his quest to be a slim drunkard, and that’s a dangerous and irresponsible message to send to people. Losing weight should be as much about achieving ultimate health and quality of life as it is about looking hot naked. Looking hot naked can be part of the quality of life thing, so it shouldn’t be discounted, but the fleeting pleasures of binge-drinking is counter-productive on all accounts. Drinking more than 1 alcoholic drink if you’re a woman, or 2 if you’re a man per day is linked to a number of life-leeching illnesses like cancer, heart disease, and cirrhosis. Even if you just binge drink once a week, or once a month you’re putting yourself at a greater risk for these diseases.
His girlfriend Lady Gaga has publicly struggled with the allure and danger of alcohol, confessing her fear of booze to the media, and even admitting during a show “I know that alcohol will kill me one day.” She may be glamorizing alcohol, but she’s also emphasizing it’s dangers in the same turn. Her boy is just glamorizing it, turning it into just a quirky lifestyle choice.
