Losing 125 Pounds and Keeping It Off with Andrew Vaught
Watching shows like 'The Biggest Loser' and then down the road reading about how everyone gains the weight back and ends up worse off than before can be disheartening...
The good news is, losing a ton of body fat AND keeping it off is possible. The problem is it just takes a less extreme approach that doesn't sell well on tv and in the magazines. It truly takes changing your lifestyle but most importantly replacing it with one that is sustainable and you can actually live with.
In today's podcast coach Gary and Will chat with CEO of Stay Roasted Andrew Vaught, who has done just that. We were lucky enough to meet Andrew years ago in an online fitness community and have since then got to hang out a bunch and become friends.
Andrew dives into everything from the actual workouts, the 'fun' beginnings of losing weight, and the not so fun plateaus and mental barriers that came along the journey. From being overweight to walking around with a 6 pack and everything in-between, Andrew gives you amazing insight on it all.
