Documents comedian Jeff Garlin's hilarious journey to lessen both his physical and carbon footprint. Garlin dedicated the filming of an entire season of Curb Your Enthusiasm to completely make over his lifestyle in two major ways--by lightening his physical and his ecological footprints. After many false starts, he believes that writing a book about the experiment is the only possible way to help him lose weight and go green. The hardest part of the endeavor is overcoming his food addiction--especially when craft services has a constant buffet on set. In addition to cutting calories, Jeff falls into a love affair with Pilates, sweats with Richard Simmons, and twice visits the Pritikin Longevity Center for "rehab." Larry David's rooting for him, Jerry Seinfeld's plotting against him, and his wife is just plain annoyed. As far as going green, Jeff has always been a big recycler, but he has a lot to learn.--From publisher description.
