In this episode we talk to BJ Tucker about his journey from fat to fit. BJ is a plant-based long distance runner and health advocate. He is the father of 5 and works a corporate job. We chat with BJ about his journey that started about 4 years ago when he was tired of being overweight and tired of not being able to walk up a flight of stairs without losing his breath. BJ has since lost 75 pounds on his own and he shares many easy and useful tips for people who would like to lose weight and improve their quality of life. We also talk about the body’s arch-enemy, sugar. We hope you will be inspired, and perhaps jump on the bandwagon and eat real food!


In this episode we discuss:

  • Our quote of the day: “There is never enough time to do things right, but there is always enough time to do them over!” ~ Anonymous
  • BJ Tucker’s reason for transformation
  • The steps he took to get where he is today
  • What worked and what didn’t
  • Support of family despite two different diets
  • Social media support groups
  • Becoming a runner again
  • Sugar
  • Milk in schools
  • What you can do immediately to help create change in your life
  • David’s Question: Hey Plant Trainers, I keep hearing the term “real food” being thrown around. Can you please clarify what this means?
