Meet Brin and Martin, Cheryl and Doug, Dierdre and Randy. Three normal married couples who share a common problem: all of the husbands weigh over 300 pounds—and not much of that’s muscle. The concerned wives concoct a plan and offer up a deal. Each guy who scales down to 210 pounds gets a free pass to spend an evening with a beautiful hooker Brin just happens to know from college.

Of course, there’s no such hooker. The wives only hope that the incentive will help their men lose a few inches off their guts. Unfortunately, Brin, Cheryl, and Dierdre underestimate the power of the male competitive drive. As the men begin to shed pounds, the women find themselves on a frantic search to find the perfect prostitute.

Follow along on a hilarious journey as three marriages, six friendships, 300 pounds of fat, and one saucy hooker endure the ups and downs of the worst weight-loss plan ever.

Praise For The High-Impact Infidelity Diet

“A laugh riot.” —Denver Post

“Lou Harry and Eric Pfeffinger brilliantly take on two of my favorite subjects—prostitution and portion control. Truly the feel-good book of the year, especially if you’re obese or paid to have sex.” —Hugh Fink, Emmy Award–winning comedian and creator of Comedy Central’s The Showbiz Show with David Spade

“A comic tour de force. The funniest book about marriage, food, and hookers ever written. Unless The English Patient had hookers in it.” —Michael Kun, author of You Poor Monster and The Locklear Letters
