Chuck Carroll is truly The Weight Loss Champion.
At just 5 feet 6 inches tall, he 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 64% of his entire body weight by conquering food addiction and devoting himself to a healthier lifestyle! And he did so without ever setting foot inside a gym.
He became a student of nutrition and health and is a living testimony that there is a difference between dieting and changing your diet.
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, including ‘4th & Pain’ with Adam Carriker where he was first given the title of “The Weight Loss Champion.”
Chuck’s journey took a twist a few years later when he became a news reporter for CBS Radio station WNEW. He reported live from Baltimore as unrest swept through the city and trailed the Pope during his historic visit to the nation’s capital. Additionally, he made numerous appearances on The Nancy Grace Show and Crime & Justice with Ashleigh Banfield.
Indeed, news was a passion. But it wasn’t his true passion.
In December 2015 he decided that it was time to pay it forward. So, he is embarking on a new journey to share his story and follow his true passion — to inspire YOU to achieve your dreams by leading a healthier lifestyle.
In October 2017 he launched The Exam Room podcast with Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. The weekly show focuses on nutrition with a heavy focus on weight loss and preventing disease through diet. The show is available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify and wherever podcasts are available.
