More About This Title The Two Martini Diet


Following arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, Jerry Sorlucco faced a choice: Lose weight or face artificial knee replacements. His surgeon laid it on the line; to avoid the knife he would have to lose 100 pounds. A feat none of his patients had achieved in his many years of practice. So, as with many others, the surgeon began to mentally prepare Jerry for the latest and greatest artificial parts that lay in his future. Or so he thought. Breaking the mold, Jerry made one of the most important decisions of his life. Instead of accepting his surgeon's vision of his future, he decided instead to change his manner of living to lose weight. And lose weight he did, shedding over 100 pounds in less than two years. This is the story of how he did it without feeling deprived of anything, including the martini or two that he enjoys in the evening.


Jerry Sorlucco was a commercial airline captain for nearly 40 years until federal regulations forced him to retire at age 60. As a serious student, he was drawn to writing after retirement and has had two other books published, A Good Stick, a memoir, tells the story of his career framed in the historical context of the wider world surrounding his personal journey; and Facing Fascism, a look into the dark side of American politics. In The Two Martini Diet he shines a light on the obesity epidemic, and by his personal example shows how you can avoid being a victim.
