TV weatherman Al Roker's weight loss is chronicled in a brand new book by the "Today" show and Weather Channel personality. The new book titled "Never Goin' Back: Winning the Weight-Loss Battle for Good," explains the 58-year-old's take on what's involved in the fight for good health.
As reported by NoypiStuff on Friday, Jan. 18, Roker is now looking to inspire others in their own personal battles with being overweight and trying to shape up. Among the topics he covers inside his brand new book are how he had to endure childhood teasing as a "real life Fat Albert," and the strain that weight issues put on relationships. Other topics include his analysis of the roots and causes of binge or closet eating. He also talks about how the best advice for losing weight is no advice at all.
Apparently, Roker had one of those moments where it all of a sudden hit him that he was near 350 pounds and needed to make some changes. He made a special promise with his dying father that he wouldn't keep living his life that way. Roker would go on to have a stomach bypass, and would drop to a healthier 190. However, he had to battle the weight returning, and made a steadfast plan to do so.
His new book currently sells at the Amazon.com website and other retail stores across the country. Al Roker is featured as a weather personality on The Weather Channel and "Today" show throughout the week. Roanoke viewers are able to catch "Wake Up With Al" on The Weather Channel via Cox Cable channel 17 on weekday mornings.
