WHO IS CHUCK CARROLL:
Chuck Carroll is truly The Weight Loss Champion.
At just 5 feet 6 inches tall, Chuck weighed 420 pounds before radically changing his life.
Like so many others, he tried and failed countless times to lose weight. Any success he achieved was short-lived as the weight came pouring back on and then some.
Out of desperation, he decided to undergo gastric bypass surgery on Sept. 1, 2009. However, prior to the procedure he was convinced that the surgery would become like all the other failed attempts to lose weight. He thought at least he would go to his grave saying he tried everything.
Chuck was just 27 years old at the time and didn’t think he would live to see 30.
But then the unexpected happened. He woke up from the surgery and never looked back.
Although a critical component, the surgery proved only to be the first step in his journey. In fact, he only attributes 10 percent of his weight loss success to the procedure.
In just over a year, Chuck shed 265 pounds by conquering food addiction and devoting himself to a healthier lifestyle! He’s now maintaining the weight loss by eating a plant-based diet. Going vegan once seemed unthinkable to Chuck, but now it’s going back to eating processed meat and dairy that would be inconceivable.
The confidence he gained from the weight loss enabled him to pursue his dream of becoming a sports reporter. He has hosted a number of radio shows with NFL players where he was first given the title of “The Weight Loss Champion.” After the pair was featured in PCRM’s Teaming Up 4 Health campaign, Chuck had the opportunity to speak on Capitol Hill and share his remarkable journey.
Shortly thereafter, Chuck’s career took a twist when he became a reporter for the all-news CBS station in Washington. From there, he went on to anchor at NBC News Radio. Now he is delighted to be bringing his passion and talents to PCRM as host of The Exam Room™ podcast.
