Josh LaJaunie (https://joshlajaunie.com/) is faster and leaner than he has ever been in his life - and he’s mentally stronger too. This inspiring man went from being a Louisiana College football player from the deep-south Bayou, tipping the scales at over 400 lbs, to hitting a wall where deep down, Josh was actually dying a slow painful death from overeating, despair, embarrassment, and shame. This kind, warm-hearted family guy’s self-esteem was declining and it started eating away at his overall well-being. So Josh did what few people are able to do in this situation – he pivoted – he put the breaks on his life as he knew it, and he changed his perception about food. By second guessing his cultural norms and redefining what winning meant for himself, for his body and for his life - he healed, inside and outside. He adopted a new normal which included switching to plant-based healthy diet, changing the way he moved his body, and he developed a new mindset. The result - Josh lost 200 plus pounds. He overcame tremendous obstacles to restore and maintain his health. He reinvented himself as athlete, crushing marathons, winning an ultra and even gracing the cover of Runner’s World magazine.
