Work Out, Pig Out: A Year of Losing Fat, Gaining Muscle, and Eating Lots of Ice Cream by Chad V. Holtkamp

indie ebook cover

Do you love to eat as much as you love to stay fit? If the answer is yes, then it’s important to stay on track with losing fat and getting strong.

Ever had the urge to try that new diet or workout you just heard about? Wonder what happens when you do? During 2014, I tried over a dozen diet and exercise plans from the likes of Dan John, Pavel Tsatsouline, Lyle McDonald, and a host of other health and fitness experts. Of course, I added in a few of my own modifications along the way to help with losing fat while gaining muscle, some of which were crazy stupid and some of which were sensibly sane.

Most even let me eat my beloved gooey chocolate caramel almond ice cream.

Work Out, Pig Out is a monthly chronicle of how I spent 2014 exploring the ups and downs of balancing diet and exercise - what I ate, how strong I got, and how I felt and looked, because that’s what really matters, right? Looking good and feeling good?

In the end, only you can find the balance that works for you. Until then, let me give you a few pointers from my yearlong quest to try to discover that balance for myself.

About The Author...

indie author

Chad V. Holtkamp


Alex P. Keaton was my idol growing up. I've always had that dual nature of being interested in business (numbers, wearing a suit, working in an office) while also being a creative at heart (singing/playing guitar in alt/punk bands, writing, and acting).

My academic adviser in college told me to learn a trade after I told her I wanted to be a writer. Being 20 and infatuated with Goethe and the Romantic movement, that wasn't what I wanted to hear. I wanted to be an ARTIST, not work in an office.

Fast forward 20 years and the office worker has won out the majority of the time while I've still dabbled as an artist. Having worked for a number of years in corporate recruiting, I've always had side gigs, be it playing in a band, DJing, writing freelance entertainment articles, acting, voiceovers.

Now I've put all that energy int0 chronicling my workout adventures to first inspire, and ultimately surprise, people about what can be accomplished while maintaining a delicious balance with your lifestyle. I'm currently working on several upcoming fitness books while also commanding my day job and Caribbean adventures.
