In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk about weight loss and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome with Tim Kaufman from Fat Man Rants. Tim walks us through what it is like to not want to get up in the morning, to getting to the first start line and then taking life by the horns and running with it. Challenged by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, he found a way to keep on moving and enjoy an active life. It all started by just doing a little bit more each day.

Tim Kaufman wanted to regain his health. At over 400 pounds he was unable to perform simple, daily tasks. He had many chronic health issues and was almost immobile. Tim had lost his interest in life and had almost given up. He started to change one small thing at a time. Tim Kaufman is now an athlete that thrives on a plant-based whole foods lifestyle and leads a healthy, happy, productive, and very active life that is free of all medications he was once on. His passion is to spread the message that anyone can transition to a whole food plant-based diet and dramatically change their life regardless of their current situation or size.
