In this podcast, I interview Jose, who used the information he learned through my articles, podcasts, and my book Muscle For Life, to finally overcome his bingeing and purging eating disorder, start losing weight the right way, and get healthy and fit. In fact, Jose successfully lost 120 pounds while getting stronger and reversing several conditions, including pre-diabetes and high blood pressure. 

Before finding my work, Jose was close to 300 pounds, and had tried various diets and weight loss hacks, including keto, Atkins, acupuncture, and even hypnosis. Nothing stuck, and nothing worked for him. He felt lost with his health and struggled with a bingeing and purging eating disorder and was even hospitalized for it at one point.

Luckily, Jose started to find good information online by following some Legion athletes on Instagram, and once he saw transformations of people who had accomplished his dream—of going from fat to fit—everything changed. He finally saw it was possible to reach his goal. He continued following Legion and read my content to build an educated foundation, and started making progress.

I wanted to bring Jose on the show because there isn’t a lot of content out there featuring men with eating disorders, and if his story can help even one other person, then it was worth it.

So this is Jose’s story of all the obstacles he ran into on his fitness journey, and how he finally overcame his eating disorder and learned what it takes to really get fit and lose weight for good.
