He no longer thinks he can achieve a goal; he knows that he will. It’s a critical distinction that the Louisiana native discovered while doing what he believed to be impossible at the time. Josh achieved a lifelong dream of dropping more than 200 pounds and becoming the person he always believed he could be, inside and out.

In this conversation with “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll, you’ll hear about Josh’s plant-powered journey in his own words. The inspiration for his first steps stems from the two biggest loves of his life, his wife and the New Orleans Saints. After the latter marched to an improbable Super Bowl victory, he began developing a game plan of his own. It wasn’t long before he stepped out of his front door and went for a run. Shortly thereafter, he ran his first race and hasn’t ever slowed down. To date, he’s run thousands of miles and is now at the forefront of the plant-based movement among athletes.
