Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) is known for writing books when he isn't running the Natural State. His latest book is Quit Digging Your Grave with a Knife and Fork. It details how he lost 110 pounds. His doctor told him to lose the weight and he's been weighing in on how much better he feels ever since.
Now, Governor Huckabee and one of his predecessors who also lost weight for health reasons are teaming up to cut fat. He and President Bill Clinton are campaigning with the American Heart Association against childhood obesity. President Clinton lost his weight after heart bypass surgery.
