In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to the inspiring and motivating Josh LaJaunie. Josh has made a huge dent in the way people down in Louisiana and all over the United States see food. He is a Coonass through and through who ate A LOT, drank, enjoyed the crawfish cookouts and was obese. Now he is a Coonass who is in shape, is inspiring others and was recently on the cover of Runner’s World Magazine. Josh talks about his journey from 400 pounds to losing over 200 pounds in an inspiring and motivating way.

In this episode we talk about how Josh got to be 400 pounds, how influential his grandfather was in his life and how running and a plant-based diet just about saved his life. Everyone always wants to know what they can start doing right now to get on their way to better health and Josh LaJaunie does not hold back on any secrets.


In this episode we discuss:

  • The culture in Louisiana
  • Josh LaJaunie’s Bam Bam
  • Finding running
  • Finding a plant-based lifestyle
  • Motivation
  • What you can start doing right now
  • Transitions and food perspective
