**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.** I don't know how to start this other than to say that I really loved the majority of this book. I've been a fan of Shay's for awhile now so I'm sure that helped, but his motivational thoughts are truly amazing and inspiring. Honestly, that's probably the number one thing I loved about this book. Some of the concepts and ideas Shay and Gavin talked about really were motivating and made [...]
first of all, I wish I didn't have to rate this book. I love shay and his family with all my heart. but this isn't the book he should have been writing. the book is extremely repetitive, almost to the point of annoyance. we get it, no junk food, drink water. I didn't pick up this book for weight loss thoug, so I shouldn't complain. quick read, if you're a shay fan, stick to watching his videos.
Wonderful book written by my favorite YouTube family. This book has inspired me to do my own 30 day work out challenge and after only 6 days I'm already down 4 pounds and feel stronger and healthier. I've even started drinking water again. I had forgotten how delicious and thirst quenching a simple glass of water could be. Great book for anyone looking to get healthier and even better to share with your children. I listened to the audiobook version of this as I did my work outs and it continuall [...]
I'm looks like a good book but I just can't start to read it. I don't know how to start can someone please help
**Originally posted here.My Review:It wasn't until recently that I was introduced to Shay Butler and the Shaytards. I'm not a huge YouTube watcher. I'll watch (and by watch I mean listen to) music videos. They will be playing in the background while I'm busy on the computer. My daughter loves watching YouTube, and she's always watching Vlogs and internetainers. Rhett and Link have become my favourites and I do find myself watching them. I'm familiar with iBallisticSquid and StampyLongNose and th [...]
I want to preface this review by saying I'm not a Shaytards fan. Not really. My girlfriend is the fan. She's the one that bought this book. I've been exposed to my fair share of Shaytards through association, though. I've watched plenty of vlogs from start to finish with her over the years. I know all the kid's names. I'm very familiar with these people, but I'm not a fan. My feelings towards Shay and his vlogs are mostly apathetic in nature.This book is basically Shay's personality in microcosm [...]
I'm sad to give this book the rating I did, but it's the best I could honestly do. I LOVE this family - I've been watching them on youtube since the very beginning of Shay's career there, and I'm grateful they have the influence they do. The book itself, though, was disappointing. The writing is okay at best, it felt disorganized and often repetitive, and I just think the direction was awfully unclear. It certainly isn't a book of solid nutrition advice, but it's not marketed that way - it's mar [...]
I won this in a giveaway!!! It was pretty good but pretty repetitive. I would have liked to read more about Shay's life and his perspective of life. We did get a lot of that but it was a little repetitive. I was surprised that he wanted to write a weight loss book instead of a memoir or something. I admire Shay so much and he means a lot to me so I was very excited to read this book. It's very optimistic and reading it put me in a better mood.
If you are looking for an inspirational book, this is the book for you. I've been watching Shay's vlogs for a couple of years now, and I never thought he could be so funny in a book as well. It's a great book!
I just sat down in my library and read this in an hour! I loved it, it had just the right amount of honesty, humor and inspiration.
Fat Dad, Fat Kid was written by the father-son duo Shay and Gavin Butler, better known as two members of the Shaytards, Youtube's "Royal Family".I've been a follower of the Shaytards for years and have seen Gavin grow from a young boy in the earliest blogs to a teenager. So I was excited when Shay announced that he would be writing a book. A little less so when the news broke it would be co-written with Gavin no offence Sontard, but an adult and child co-writing is not my preferred book style. [...]
I actually enjoyed this quite a bit. I have watched Shay and his family on and off for the last couple of years and this book was just a fun as one of their videos. It spreads a great message about getting yourself healthy and that change can come when you start small. I enjoyed his comparisons to how your body is processing your food and how food that is good for you is easier to process. I recommend this partly because it was funny and a quick read and partly because I feel like I actually got [...]
I really enjoyed the book
I love the way this book was written. It's witty and just full of love.
As sad as I am to say this, I couldn't finish the book. In light of recent events in his life, I feel like I'm reading the words of a total fraud and hypocrite. The first several times reading of how godly of a man he is, how morally upright he is, how upstanding he iswas hard to digest. When every other page had statements like that, it got to the point where I could no longer tolerate it anymore. I wasn't really interested in the topic of the book, was only reading it to support the Shaytards [...]
Great Read…i like how it flowed. The honesty or both Shay and Gavin.
This is the first book for Shay Butler and his son Gavin. They are a part of the Shaytard which is a popular YouTube channel with millions of subscribers. Shay and his family are daily vloggers where they post a videos every day to their channel. The videos chronicle their daily lives including the birth of their children, Shay’s challenges to lose weight and to live a healthy lifestyle. Shay lost 100 pounds during the course of the videos. This book journals the struggles of trying to keep th [...]
On the record this is the first self-help book I've ever read, so by default it is the best one I've read. I have no experience with this genre so I don't have extensive experience to determine what is good and bad, so I'm going with my gut instinct of what i define as a good read. Now, I would never have read this book if I wasn't a huge fan of the Shaytards, so my view may be slightly better because of this - take that into consideration of the review.The book felt primarily like a glorified j [...]
***I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of our review.***What I really liked about this book was the inclusion of his oldest child, Gavin. Gavin was always a heavier set kid, even in his young years. Most weight loss books are about adults losing the weight, so it was nice to get a kid's perspective on losing weight and getting healthy. It's a really tough thing to do. I commend Gavin on [...]
The inspirational non-fiction book, "Fat Dad, Fat Kid" was written by Shay Butler and his son Gavin. On YouTube, with over 4 million subscribers and roughly 600,000 views per video, Shay films his life along with his five children, wife, and Great Dane. They are one of the most popular YouTube families. The book is mostly about the struggles the father/son pair have gone through. At the time of the book Shay is in his early 30’s and Gavin is 11 years old. Gavin opens up about the bullying that [...]
So just like all of the other Youtube books I've read I bought this because I love the Shaytards. I also thought this was an interesting and new idea in terms of Youtuber books, especially since it is about a father and son. I knew Shay is philosophical and he has crazy thoughts that inspire me and make me want to be a better person and follow my dreams, so I knew this book would be full of that motivation talk.The chapters were a very good length for me, I prefer short chapters. We should all k [...]
"Totally love the book so far. It's honest, motivating, and touching. Although I wish Gavin wrote more, I still look forward to reading his blurbs before or after every chapter. Can't wait to finish!! :)"That was my review when I was 67 pages in, and I still stick to what I said.After finishing the book, I realized this is the perfect book for someone who is trying to lose weight to read. Nowadays, there are so many people who claim to know the "secrets" to doing things to help you get to your d [...]
This book follows the story of father Shay Butler and his eldest son Gavin on a month long journey to health. Shay has always struggled with eating right and his weight but is determined to try harder and set a good example not only for Gavin, but for his other four children. This book is the perfect balance between a partial autobiography and health and fitness guide. Shay brings his own fun personality to the story and Gavin’s short excerpts give the perfect perspective from a young student [...]
I loved how honest and straight to the point Shay was about his journey with weight loss. I've been a fan of the Shaytards for like 5 years now and I have seen how much they have grown as a family. I admire how close they are and how much they love one another. I also love how he speaks of his children about what it means to really be a part of their upbringing. I agree with that wholeheartedly. I hope that I can implement some of his suggestions which are obvious when wanting to loss weight and [...]
This was a great audiobook about the journey to a healthier life as experienced by a father and a son. I'll admit that I didn't know who Shay Butler was before listening to this audiobook but as I listened to the book, he comes across as a man who loves his family and wants to be around for them for a long time. The main purpose of this audiobook is for Shay to become healthier for the sake of his family and also for his oldest son Gavin to become healthier as well by exercising more and cutting [...]
Can't fault it! Amazing! Written by a truly inspirational guy and his son. It's way more than just a weight loss/fitness book and to be honest I brought way more valuable life lessons about being an overall healthier and happier person than actual tips and tricks on weight loss because like Shay said: There is no trick. You just have to work hard and soon enough your efforts will pay off. And that applied to everything in life, not just fitness and health.Adored this book! And it will be a book [...]
I was so excited to get this book because the Shaytards are like my life role models!! I can only wish my family can turn out to be anything like them. I would have to say I wish this book was a little more of a autobiography about them and their life then about losing weight. But of course I did love the book anyway. The only thing that I would say was 'bad' about it was that a lot of the things were repeated. It felt like as I was ending the book most of what I was reading was already said wit [...]
I firstly want to give props to Gavjn and Shay for being so dedicated in their 30 day challenge. This book however wasn't what I'd hoped for. If you're a fan of the Shaytards like I am, you'll enjoy it because shays voice and positive attitude comes through in his writing, so for that I give him credit. However, the book is very repetitive and I didn't feel like I was getting any good diet tips or advice. Yes the book is a positive look at weight loss and I did feel it was uplifting in parts, bu [...]
This book is a great motivator for gaining and sustaining a healthy lifestyle, and is peppered with life lessons throughout its pages. However, as many of the other reviews read, it is kind of all over the place. I understand what Shay was doing with each chapter being labeled as a "day," but sometimes he wouldn't even mention what they did for that day. I also would have loved to hear more from Gavin. I am a huge fan of the Shaytards (have been since 2008), and I was very intrigued to read this [...]
I read this in a few hours. A quick easy read due to Shay's conversational writing style. I would say you need to have watched his videos in order to like this book. He is a relatively good motivational writer and really pumps you up to accomplish your goals, whatever they may be. It chronicles a 30-day period where he and his son try to eat really healthily and ideally lose some weight, but mainly start good habits. It's a great idea and he's a very compelling guy. If you read it with the under [...]
